Meet the Aurora UH-1H: a fully autonomous helicopter developed under the Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) Autonomous Aerial Cargo Utility System (AACUS) program. It is AACUS enabled, so marines can request a supply delivery from a tablet.
According to the company, no major training is required to use this system. AEH-1 (AACUS-Enabled UH-1H) has LiDAR and camera sensors to detect obstacles and evaluate the landing zone. It can perform onboard mission, route, and path planning.
