The work on creating an unmanned aerial vehicle model Boeing Phantom Ray began to be conducted by American engineers and scientists in the field of designing aerospace systems and aircraft construction, back in 2007. The new project was positioned as a promising military development, ensuring minimization of manned air assets of the US armed forces. Due to its wide functionality, an unmanned aerial vehicle can be used not only as an independent combat unit, but also as an intelligence agent, as well as for patrol observation and special operations.

The first flight of an unmanned aircraft model Boeing Phantom Ray funds held in 2011 year, however, despite the fact that most of the tests have been successfully completed, the project continued to improve. According to preliminary data, the final test of the new UAV Boeing Phantom Ray models are planned for the year 2017, while expect the drone in the armed forces of the USA should be no earlier than 2020 years, and it is provided that the UAV successfully pass all the tests set.

Four high-precision missiles were armed drone Boeing Phantom Ray, allowing to destroy both ground and air targets, as well as two bombs, making it possible to deal with fortified ground targets.

Powerplant drone Boeing Phantom Ray presented a turbojet engine of the brand General Electric F404-GE-102D, whose power is 48,9 kN, which in turn provides the drone overclocking up to speed in 1020 km \ h., While the effective radius of the unmanned action means the order of kilometers 2400.
