Experience with unmanned aerial vehicles is provided by the Aerospace Engineering Department at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in areas such as autopilot development, ground control systems, and vision. In addition, the experience can be leveraged for other tasks, such as low-cost testing for unmanned flight systems, starting with small-scale testing to increase testing time and reduce testing costs at the early stages.
