SkyForce DMS consists of Proxy’s mission-oriented
software system, a primary mission-management ground control
station and mobile ground control user terminals. Together,
these elements are designed to control up to 12 fully autonomous
air vehicles engaging in concurrent, cooperative flight. With
SkyForce DMS, each UAV has the ability to make fully independent
decisions during flight, contributing to the group tactical
goal, without any human intervention. This fact makes it completely
different from any UAV system on the market today.
The United States Air Force UAV Battlelab is using
the SkyForce to evaluate cooperative flight of several unmanned
aircraft flying in constellation formation, while simultaneously
distributing sensor control and viewing capability among multiple
The cooperative constellation demonstrated adaptive
autonomy using SkyForce DMS and the Virtual Pilot capability
that are key software components of the SkyForce system.
