X-45A Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle In September 2000, Phantom Works previewed the first X-45A UCAV, ushering in a new era of X-vehicle technology. The X-45 will begin flight-testing in mid-2001 to demonstrate autonomous flight and the potential of combat missions. Operational UCAVs will be able to fly 650 nautical miles and carry 1,000 pounds of weapons. The Boeing program manager is Rich Alldredge.
