The most current Apaches can control almost all (maybe all?) UAV types already. Everything except takeoff and landing. They are just using that same interface with this Little Bird.

I'm not sure any pilot would like to just fall asleep while someone else "drives" for him over a satellite link, though, but it's a great test bed, for sure.

The case for Enlisted Pilots? :)
