I was wondering what the UAV uses to locate and then approach the tanker? Is it just GPS cord. or a camera system relaying to a remote pilot?

I can't say on the new classified UAVs but I believe the x-45 had an air to air tacan system on board. Not 100% sure though. Early testing was done with a Lear 35 jet with an onboard pilot. No cameras were used on the x-45. Keep in mind that with the 45 and 47 we never got closer than 50 feet from each other. They didn't have receptacles for refueling. There are a couple RQ aircraft that do though

I think realy the BAE Transformer don't see the sun a day there is no enough money in the British budget to develop something like that, this is beautiful paperwall for child nothing else sadly.

Yeh I understand what you are saying but as I posted a while back it's still interesting to see what some companies think about when developing new(ish) tech.. I thought it was interesting. Isn't BAE technically a international company ? Considering they have their fingers in a lot of pies ?

Yes its possible it can serve to cooperate with US company on futur projects , there is no doubt RAF will be the first Air force in Europe for sure, Bae is a very inovative company just asking the government giving more money on new Aerospace projects.
