Fraunhofer developing a drone-strike test for aircraft

The team now plans on testing other materials such as carbon fiber composites, with a longer-term goal of shooting complete drones weighing up to 3 kg (6.6 lb) at complete aircraft. Among other things, the researchers want to see what sort of damage the drones will do to engines, cockpit windshields, and the leading edges of wings. Ultimately, they hope to establish a standardized drone-specific testing procedure.
