Sikorsky Progresses in Unmanned DARPA Project
Sikorsky successfully completed phase one of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Aircrew Labor In-Cockpit Automation System program by flying its unmanned S-76 for 30 mi. The aircraft took off from the company's Stratford, Connecticut, facility to Robertson Airport in Plainville, Connecticut. The flight was planned and executed using a tablet, and a ground station crew monitored the progress of the aircraft.
