the self flying blackhawk helicopter is in the works at lockheed martin


the defense advanced research projects agency darpa and sikorsky successfully demonstrated to the us government that they have. S. Army for the first time how an uninhabited Black Hawk helicopter flying autonomously can safely and reliably perform internal and external cargo resupply missions, and a rescue operation. Performed Oct. 12, 14, and 18 as part of the U. S. Army’s Project Convergence 2022 (PC22) experiment, the flights show how existing and future piloted utility helicopters could one day fly complex missions in reduced crew or autonomous mode. This would give Army commanders and aviators greater flexibility in how and when aircraft and pilots are used, especially in limited visibility or contested environments.
