$BA $TSLA $AAPL $AMZN $GOOGL Boeing successfully completed concurrent end-to-end flight missions using 3 high-performance jets flying simultaneously. During the flight, Boeing performed a number of tests including; 3 jets taking off autonomously, achieving the required in-air formations, departing from the formations, & each landing autonomously. Dubbed 'The Autonomous Systems Platform Technology Project', Boeing & its partners are developing new on-board autonomous command & control technology to enable unmanned vehicles to perceive, process, communicate & act in accordance with their programmed mission – without any input from a human operator! “Our goal, to completely test out our mission system software from start to finish, using 3 high performance jets,” said Hughes, “While we have previously flown larger numbers aircraft autonomously, this was our 1st opportunity to perform an end-to-end mission test with 3 high performance test bed aircraft, at speeds of up to 200 km/hr”
