Lockheed Martin and Kaman Aerospace Corporation K-MAX cargo unmanned aircraft system (UAS) has returned to the United States following a nearly three-year deployment in Afghanistan.

The team has lifted more than 4.5 million pounds of cargo and conducted delivery missions for the U.S. Marine Corps.

K-MAX delivered cargo in theater for the U.S. Marine Corps in 2011.

Manufactured by Kaman Aerospace Corporation and outfitted with its mission package of systems and sensors, the heavy-lifting K-MAX UAS can lift 6,000 pounds of cargo at sea level. It is capable of flying delivery missions day and night.
