For the first time in aerial history, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has controlled military plane

For the first time in aerial history, a fighter jet has been successfully flown using Artificial Intelligence (AI), with AI assisting a main jet pilot as a co-pilot. On December 15, 2020, the US Air Force developed a state-of-the-art computer algorithm as a co-pilot, which is a historical event.

In this experiment, which took place on December 15, the latest artificial intelligence algorithm took over the responsibility of the co-pilot, i.e. the co-pilot's seat was vacant. The experiment involved the U-2 Dragon Lady Jet, a surveillance and reconnaissance unit.

It was flown from California's Beale Air Force Base by a pilot named Maj.“Vudu, while its algorithm, ARTUµ, helped the plane fly at every opportunity and guided and assisted the central pilot, but it was not an easy task. Because even the slightest mistake in the case of a high-speed flight can lead to a serious accident.

That's why software was developed for three consecutive years. The algorithm was developed at the U.S. Air Force's Utopian Federal Laboratory. In this lab, the software is taught all the tasks that a pilot normally does.

During the test flight, AI also thwarted a virtual anti-aircraft missile attack by operating a sensor, which demonstrates the extraordinary success of the algorithm. On the other hand, the technical and other surveillance missions of the aircraft were also performed by the software.

As soon as it rose into the air, the ARTUµ algorithm took control of all the necessary sensors of the aircraft as it was trained by 500,000 sensors but throughout the aerial experiment, the software and the human pilot worked as a team and anti-aircraft missiles Radar was used evenly to prevent the accident.

Experts believe that in future wars, routine aerial operations will be performed by artificial intelligence and the pilot will focus on other essential tasks.
