Funding Opportunity Description: The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) in support of the planning/acquisition strategy for the proof-of-concept demonstration testing of autonomy for a Loyal Wingman (LW). A LW is defined as an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that operates in a strike package with manned fighter aircraft. The LW is under the tactical command of the manned lead and is not tethered to a ground station or under the full-time direction of the manned lead. This is referred to as a manned unmanned teaming (MUM-T). This RFI seeks feedback on potential test assets to act as the LW and host autonomy technologies.
