Built and operated by Aurora Flight Science as part of DARPA's Aircrew Labor In-Cockpit Automation System (ALIAS) program, the robot's touchdown was one of a series of flight maneuvers carried out by the system in an effort to develop an automated co-pilot that can be quickly and cheaply installed in existing aircraft...
