Synchronized UAVs complete flight tests with new Boeing command & controlNews
August 20, 2018
BRISBANE, Australia. Boeing engineers in Australia completed a series of synchronised unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flight tests using new on-board autonomous command and control technology.
The flight test was conducted at a regional Queensland airfield. During testing, five UAV test beds equipped with Boeing’s new on-board system safely completed in-air programmed missions as a team without input from a human pilot.
Over the coming months, the Boeing Australia team will incorporate and test more advanced behaviors on high-performance air vehicles before exploring other domains such as unmanned ocean vehicles.
This activity is delivered in partnership with the Queensland Government as part of Boeing’s Advance Queensland Autonomous Systems Platform Technology Project.
