We Talk MUTANT, The Bending Missile, With The Air Force Research Lab

Maybe the most striking exhibit on the floor of the Air Force Association’s Warfare Symposium in Denver, Colorado was the Air Force Research Laboratory’s MUTANT bending body missile. We profiled the fascinating MUTANT program a year ago, which you can read here. TWZ’s Jamie Hunter got a full update on the swiftly-moving program from AFRL’s Dr. Ben Dickinson on the show floor, including details on the concept’s upcoming test flight program. If successful, MUTANT’s articulating body flight control system could revolutionize missile technology.
