Sikorsky announced it will demonstrate a fully autonomous version of the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter after having already shown a version operated remotely by a pilot on the ground. The company has acquired a UH-60A to serve as a proof-of-concept demonstrator that a Black Hawk can take-off, fly and land under control of onboard computers and a newly-installed fly-by-wire flight control system. The company is in the process of selecting partners to develop the autonomous version of the Black Hawk. (Image Credit: Wikipedia / Defenseimagery.mil)
