In 2000, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Software-Enabled Control (SEC) program started work on the advancement of control software design and implementation of autonomous vehicles. Using the fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft, the technologies were demonstrated on their autonomous helicopters test-bed in Georgia Tech and University of California (UC) at Berkeley. The same technology was implemented on different platforms, including micro air vehicles and full-size helicopters to achieve the autonomous behavior with a re-usable control software infrastructure.
