Having grown up near the big El Lay, I know the surrounding cities fairly well. And despite the below article, Pt Mugu, the site of the Navy’s new drone base, is a good half-hour away from the sunny shores of Malibu. Still, it makes for a good story, sort of:
Why Is the Navy Building a Shiny Drone Base in Sunny Malibu?
Sorry, Sushi/Massage Guru at Google: you no longer have the coolest tech job in America. That honor will belong to the future staff at the planned Point Mugu UAV installation in paradisiacal California. Surfing, sunrays, and constant sensor surveillance. And it’s only the beginning.
If we manage to keep the cost respectable in both basing and procurement of the Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Triton, we will keep ahead of the competitive curve.
