Abstract
Aerotonomy, Incorporated and our Research Institution partner the Georgia Institute of Technology (GIT) will combine an innovative adaptive guidance system, the latest knowledge in autonomous adaptive rotorcraft control, and intuitive pilot interface techniques to arrive at a safe, practical, Autonomous Formation Flying System (AFFS) for manned rotorcraft. This Phase I project will culminate in an actual heterogeneous formation flight test demonstration with GIT's GTMax UAV flying autonomously in formation with a manned UH-60 simulation.
