Flying drones is not for wimps. I'm not talking about the toy drones that float around your house, bouncing harmlessly off walls, people, and furniture, or even then $99 ones you keep losing over the ocean. I mean the real deal. Companies like DJI have built significant intelligence into their drones and vastly simplified the apps, but flying them is still a skill. SEE ALSO: DJI's Spark drone is so small and smart, it could be a game-changer The first time I flew an expensive drone, I couldn't get used to the pitch, yaw, forward, reverse, and elevation controls and flew it straight into a tree (okay, I backed up into it).
Debrief tool used in the experiment displays a video replay of the operator console (similar to this map display), and a timeline of events suggested by AEMASE for discussion during debrief. The tool also includes visualizations of entity movement over time. Navy pilots and other flight specialists soon will have a new "smart machine" installed in training simulators that learns from expert instructors to more efficiently train their students. Sandia National Laboratories' Automated Expert Modeling & Student Evaluation (AEMASE, pronounced "amaze") is being provided to the Navy as a component of flight simulators. Components are now being used to train Navy personnel to fly H-60 helicopters and a complete system will soon be delivered for training on the E-2C Hawkeye aircraft, said Robert G. Abbott, a Sandia computer scientist and AEMASE's inventor.
