Merlin Plans the Way Forward

Autonomy Developer Picks Most Wanted Merlin’s completed test flights with the KC-135 have borne just some fruit, with the firm’s recent publication of updated tasking for their autonomy development team. They point to a trio of tasks that they put at the top of their to-do list, including automated checklist procedures, dynamic navigation, and emergency landing. Merlin stressed that they aren’t just doing it all in a vacuum either, since they’re working with “human pilot expertise to build a comprehensive autonomy framework that underpins the full suite of pilot skills and supports a safer, more scalable and resilient air network.”
