NASA autonomous flight software successfully used in air taxi stand-ins

In late October, two research helicopters from the manufacturer Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, made a dozen test flights over Long Island Sound, Connecticut taking care to avoid other aircraft in the area around them.

This was the first time two autonomous aircraft were flying at one another using NASA designed collision avoidance software.
