Morpheus Free Flight 12 Newest Videos
The multi-center, integrated Morpheus/ALHAT team successfully completed Free Flight 12 (FF12) at the KSC SLF on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, Bravo's 10th and ALHAT's 3rd free flight. The autonomous Bravo vehicle flew essentially the same pre-programmed trajectory as in FF11 (800+ ft height, 1300+ ft downrange), with one significant exception; Bravo closed the loop on hazard detection and flew to the ALHAT Hazard Detection System (HDS) identified safe site. The ALHAT HDS identified its primary safe landing site 1.4m (4.5ft) east of the pad center and the vehicle then targeted that location for landing.
