Boeing Team Demonstrates Advanced Autonomous Flight Control for UAVs


Boeing and a team of flight control scientists from academia have demonstrated leading-edge flight control technologies that potentially could dramatically improve the mission effectiveness of advanced unmanned aerial vehicles.

The effort is part of the Software Enabled Control program ( SEC ) sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency ( DARPA ), with technical direction from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory.

The demonstration flight, on May 26 at Victorville, Calif., involved the DARPA Renegade rotorcraft UAV, modified to include SEC hardware and software. During the flight, the SEC software assumed control of the Renegade to execute autonomous maneuvering algorithms developed by university teams.
