Autonomous flight systems


The autonomy of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems created by artificial intelligence (AI) continues to increase, enabling the usage of more effective, robust, and precise drones. This is made possible by increasing end-device-based computing power or accessing cloud services to compute large datasets, especially in areas with large bandwidth and an undisturbed signal environment. If a domain is contested and subject to substantial interference, AI for guidance and undetected system communication is significant, constituting a considerable advantage in electronic warfare. Both Boeing and Airbus have already started test flights to understand how unmanned aircrafts can operate together using onboard command and data sharing. In the commercial sector, advanced air mobility is a second application of this technology. According to a Morgan...
