Airborne-UnCrewed 09.27.22: NASA Dart-Bullseye!, Vertiport Design, Avenger MQ20A

Also: Bell High-Speed VTOL, Artemis, China v Nearby AFB, SpaceX Starship

It is truly the ultimate unmanned mission...

After 10 months flying in space, NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) – the world’s first planetary defense technology demonstration – successfully impacted its asteroid target on Monday, the agency’s first attempt to move an asteroid in space. Mission control at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland, announced the successful impact, Monday, at 7:14 p.m. EDT. The FAA has released a memorandum outlining its initial design guidelines for vertiports—infrastructure that will support Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) aircraft. Titled Engineering Brief No. 105, Vertiport Design, the memorandum codifies—albeit preliminarily—the standards to which municipalities, airport owners and operators, and civil engineers will develop and construct the facilities from which Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) and Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (EVTOL) aircraft will arrive and depart, be fueled, charged, serviced, and hangered. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, (GA-ASI) has completed a fully autonomous sortie using an Avenger MQ-20A equipped with their Artificial Intelligence Piloting software. The flight used the company's Open Mission Systems (OMS) software stack and an otherwise garden variety Avenger to carry out the 30 minute voyage. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
