The Australian division of the American aircraft manufacturing concern Boeing has tested a group of three drones in a fully Autonomous mode. As he writes to Jane’s, the aim of the trials was to test the system control and flight tasks for unmanned vehicles. The test was deemed successful.
Today Boeing is developing several Autonomous robotic aircraft systems, which could act alone or in a group, in conjunction with manned aircraft. A system of flight control tasks for UAVs is conducted in the framework of the project ASPT, involving the creation of on-Board equipment, under control of which the apparatus could independently perform tasks without operator intervention.
Test management system flight tasks were on the ground, in Containers, in the Australian Queensland. The control three devices without any involvement of the operator to perform takeoff, flying on a given route at a speed of 200 kilometers per hour, joining the group and making a few formations, then emerged from the group and made a fully automatic landing. Other details about the tests Boeing has not yet disclosed.
In early may of 2020, the Australian division of the Boeing held a roll-out of the first flight model of promising unmanned Loyal wingman Wingman. Currently, the company is conducting ground testing of the apparatus. Promising the unit will be able to act as maintainer for manned combat aircraft. All, Boeing must collect and test three prototype Loyal Wingman.
