AeroMech Engineering of San Luis Obispo, Calif., successfully demonstrated for the U.S. Navy a system that can command and control multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at the same time, according to an April 1 AeroMech press release.

The company’s Common Interface Target Control System was successfully demonstrated Dec. 15 at Naval Air Station Point Mugu, Calif., the release said. Using a military ultrahigh frequency signal, the system commanded a Northrop Grumman-built BQM-74E aerial target. With rapid software upgrades, the system can be configured to fly different vehicles, the release said.
