Army Testing Out Autonomous Cessna Caravan, Too

xWing Finds Footing Under Army Program Evaluating Uncrewed Cargo Craft xWing has been advanced under the US Army’s xTech SBIR Autonomy program, allowing them to show off their autonomous airlift and logistics capability using a modified C-208 Caravan. It gives a strong sense of deja vú to see yet another autonomous Caravan making waves in the industry, but it makes sense why: The C-208’s legendary reliability, rugged landing gear, high payload, and affordable single-engine running costs make it a very solid prospect for drone conversion at this stage of the industry. xWing is no stranger to the scene, either, already a part of the USAF AFWERKS Autonomy Prime program.
