1980–1999 Boeing and Honeywell and Lockheed Martin developed the RQ-3 DarkStar unmanned aerial vehicle. The UAV’s flight path could be modified en route from a remote location by up-linking new waypoints to the Darkstar’s Flight management system’s Flight management system.
1986 Flight management system providing minimum total cost. Patent US 4760530 A
Tier III- or “Tier three minus” during development) is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Its first flight was on March 29, 1996.
AIMS-2 – 2000 pilot input no longer necessary.
The Boeing 777 along with other Boeing models, can be flown remotely through the use of independent embedded software and satellite communication. Once engaged, it can disallow any pilot or potential hijacker from controlling a plane, as the rooted setup uses digital signals that communicate with air traffic control, satellite links, as well as other government entities for the remainder of a flight’s journey.
“USA and Europe hone air security
By: JOHN CROFT WASHINGTON DC

Across the Atlantic, technologies are being pursued under the Security of Aircraft in the Future European Environment (SAFEE) programme – a four-year, €37 million ($48 million) effort that began in 2004, funded 50:50 by the European Commission and industry. Under the programme, Airbus, BAE Systems, Sagem, Thales and Dutch national aerospace laboratory NLR are overseeing key initiatives with the help of 26 additional companies. Focus areas include on-board threat detection systems, threat assessment and response management, and automatic guidance systems to safely secure an aircraft under siege.”
Uninterruptible flight control
December 2006, the patent on an uninterruptible autopilot system for use in commercial aircraft was announced. The new autopilot patent was reported by John Croft for Flight Global. Croft outlines the clandestine oversight that government has with respect to the uninterruptible autopilot, making note of the auto-land function of the system and stating that the technology has its own power supply self-sufficient of any electrical systems on the plane:
“To make it fully independent, the system has its own power supply, independent of the aircraft’s circuit breakers. The aircraft remains in automatic mode until after landing, when mechanics or government security operatives are called in to disengage the system.”
In 1917, Archibald Low as head of the RFC [Britain’s Royal Flying Corps] Experimental Works, was the first person to use radio control successfully on an aircraft.
In the 1930s Britain developed the radio controlled Queen Bee, a remotely controlled unmanned Tiger Moth aircraft for a fleet’s gunnery firing practice. The Queen Bee was superseded by the similarly named Queen Wasp, a later, purpose built, target aircraft of higher performance.
After the 9/11 attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center, President Bush called for the creation of remote control systems in commercial airliners in the event of an emergency, granting air traffic controllers along with other government agencies control over an aircraft.
Field McConnell on Germanwings Flight 9525
McConnell notes Serco (the world’s largest air traffic controller) processed a 2 millionth patent application for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in March 2013 giving its Black Hand navigators access to patented devices including “FR2829865 (A1) – Control transfer for hijacked aircraft involves passing full control to escorting aircraft” needed to cause or to prevent the Airbus crashes of AF Flight 447, QZ Flight 8501 and Germanwings 9525.
