atynews.com – Marines are reportedly attempting unmanned boats in their training program. This unmanned aircraft carry logistics during the exercise.
Military.com report, Thursday (7/6/2018), The exercise was conducted at Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center 29 Palms, California.
UH-1 Huey autonomy took part in the combat training and successfully succeeded for now.
UH-1 itself is a future experiment to help marines get logistical operations while on the battlefield.
The legacy helicopter platform is made autonomous with the Autonomous Aerial Cargo / Utility System, or AACUS.
The aircraft is quite sophisticated. It can detect and avoid obstacles in the air or around its landing zone.
Camp Lejeune, a North Carolina-based battalion set up late last year as a Marine Corps experimental unit for logistics, placed it in the first line for experiments involving new technologies and systems.
The Corps recently completed nearly two years of a series of infantry experiments involving the 3rd Battalion, the 5th Marine, a designated experimental infantry battalion trained and deployed over a period of time.
