Your first time here? Welcome, I'm glad you've dropped in.... David Soul (aka Bricoleur)

Australia, 6th July 2004. In a world first, truly autonomous,
Intelligent Agent-controlled flight was achieved by a Codarra ‘Avatar’
unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). 

The Avatar was guided by a JACKTM  intelligent software agent that directed the aircraft’s autopilot during the course of the mission. The on-board JACKTM agent
chose the best route to fly after evaluating real-time flight and
weather data accessed through a direct link to the autopilot and its
GPS (Global Positioning System). 

The trial demonstrated
both in-flight Intelligent Agent control of the aircraft and fully
autonomous mission selection capabilities. It shows that UAVs can now
autonomously replan and execute missions without ground operator
intervention. <pdf>
