Airborne-UnCrewed 09.13.22: Reliable Robotics, UAL Eve eVTOL, MQ-25 Demo

Also: Electra Hybrid Engine, UAS Right-of-Way, Artemis Launch Date, SpaceX to Launch Iridium

Reliable Robotics and Kenya-based cargo operator Astral Aviation have announced their collaboration in using autonomous cargo aircraft throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. 

Reliable Robotics has been hard at work seeking certification of its automated Cessna Caravan 208, making headway as they obtain approval for fully-autopiloted flights with a safety pilot at the helm. United Airlines announced a $15 million investment in Eve Air Mobility, with a conditional purchase agreement for 200 of the marque's 4-seater eVTOL aircraft. The deal includes an option for 200 more aircraft, with the initial deliveries expected to take place in 2026. A longtime sci-fi fantasy is nearing fruition after Boeing demonstrated their new "open autonomy architecture" for the uncrewed MQ-25. The architecture is non-proprietary, based on the government's Open Mission System for maximum interoperability. The end result is that crewed aircraft can task autonomous MQ-25 aircraft to carry out new directives in-air. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
