Humans out of the loop – again

This is the perfect example of combining an operational requirement and technology. The Israeli air force (IAF) is a major operator of unmanned air systems (UAS). Until recently there was a “man in the loop” – mainly in the shape of an external pilot, in charge of the take-off and landing of some of the […]
