WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) and Pennsylvania State University combined efforts to demonstrate sustained unmanned, powerless flight of two UAV sailplanes during testing of the solar-soaring and cooperative soaring algorithm-based concepts. The test flights occurred during the weeks of September 28 and October 26, 2015, successfully demonstrating proof-of-concept of in-flight collaborative soaring and swarming capabilities of non-powered UAVs. Pictured (left to right) are NRL team members Chris Bovais, Dan Edwards, and Trent Young and PSU team members Jack Langelaan, Nate Depenbusch, and John Bird.
