Test of unmanned airliner from Boeing will begin next year

Airplanes are able to fly well almost without human help along the route, pilots are only required occasionally to adjust course and altitude, everything else is autopilot makes himself. But Boeing is going to create technology that will be able to control the aircraft in fully automatic mode.

The fact that the Corporation intends to develop unmanned systems for aircraft control, said Mike Sinnett from Boeing.

He stressed that the technical obstacles which could prevent the development does not exist. The Corporation specialists have already begun work on software for unmanned aircraft control, alpha version which will start testing this summer on the simulator, and the first test aircraft are going to launch the next one, 2018.

Drone technology has already been used by specialists of Boeing — an experimental X-37B, for example, for several years of flying and being tested in orbit. It is possible that versions for civilian aircraft will use the existing developments.

Commissioned By DARPA engineers at Boeing are designing a spaceship designed to launch satellites into orbit. Under the project, the space plane needs to be equipped with a drone control system, which will allow him to take off and land without human assistance.
