The US Air Force will create an AI system for autonomous control of military UAVs

Skyborg assumes not the development of unmanned aerial vehicles, but the creation of a system for coordinating them

flights. The Air Force report states that an artificial intelligence system should build the UAV route in such a way as to avoid collisions with other aircraft, terrain, and avoid thunderstorms.

The system should control the drone in such a way that it can autonomously take off and land, and also help control the aircraft to people who do not have piloting experience.

The main purpose of the Skyborg program is to create on its basis a modular aircraft, similar to a fighter, which can be used to support a military fighter.


Earlier it was reported that the slave drone planes, which is developed by the US Air Force, will learn the art of flying from human pilots.
