Manned/Unmanned Teaming Demo

 

Lockheed Martin, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), US Air Force Test Pilot School and Calspan Corporation have recently successfully demonstrated manned/unmanned teaming.

Have Raider II saw an F-16 act as a surrogate unmanned combat air vehicle, autonomously formatting on a lead aircraft before conducting a ground-attack mission and then re-joining the lead aircraft.

The two-week demonstration at the Test Pilot School at Edwards AFB followed Have Raider I, which focused on advanced vehicle control.
