Aurora Flight Sciences, au fost selectati sa dezvolte in cadrul programului Persistent Close Air Support, al DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) o versiune fara pilot a avionului pentru sprijin apropiat A-10. Selectia a fost facuta de catre cei de la Raytheon care conduc efortul de proiectare in cadrul programului PCAS.

Aurora Flight Sciences, isi vor putea pune in aplicare vasta experienta acumulata in domeniul vehiculelor aeriene fara pilot, responsabilitatea lor fiind proiectarea si dezvoltarea avionului demonstrator.

“Aurora’s selection by Raytheon to develop critical air vehicle technologies for the DARPA PCAS program is a major step in our relationship, which began with the Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle and Loiter Attack Missile programs in the 1990s,” a declarat John Langford, cel mai sef mare la Aurora.

In programul PCAS mai sunt implicati Rockwell Collins si  GE Aviation.
