Australian official confirms Taranis test location

Royal Australian Air has confirmed flight testing of the BAE Systems-led Taranis unmanned combat air system demonstrator took place at the nation’s Woomera test range, removing a classification status previously imposed by the UK Ministry of Defence.
Taranis successfully flight trialled its advanced unmanned combat air vehicle at Woomera in August last year.
A first series of flights was conducted with the stealthy type at Woomera, with a second round having been performed between late the same year and January 2014. The latter involved flying the aircraft in what BAE describes as a “fully stealthy configuration, making it virtually invisible to radar”. Additional trials are now the subject of discussion between the company and the MoD.
