General Atomics has two solutions to keep MQ-9 airborne for longer periods

General Atomics has proposed two solutions to boost the endurance of the MQ-9 Predator B. One method requires the installation of two fuel tanks and a redesigned undercarriage.

This will allow the UAV to remain airborne for up to 37 hours.

The other method is to swap the current 20.1m wings 26.8m ones to create an extra 5 hours of flight time.
