United States is set to deploy two Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Triton drones at Misawa air base in Japan’s Aomori prefecture for five months.

Kyodo new agency reported on Saturday that the first drone was put into service.

The Japanese Defence Ministry believes that the temporary deployment of a long endurance unmanned aerial vehicle for reconnaissance will boost security by enhancing the country’s ability to monitor activities in Japan’s and surrounding waters, according to the agency.

The Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Triton can stay in the air for up to 30 hours and climb to an altitude of 17,000 meters (10.5 miles), which will allow Japan to monitor vast sea areas.

Japan has been concerned about China’s activity near Senkaku Island and regular entry by Chinese patrol ships into Japan’s territorial waters in recent years.
