The rise of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) is shaking the aviation industry, including the helicopter segment. Recent research programs in North America and Europe have been looking at integrating unmanned aerial technology with existing helicopter capabilities, hence developing a manned/unmanned capable platform called Optionally Piloted Helicopter (OPH). Presently restricted to a test-bed status, the report delves into why the helicopter industry should consider investing in the optionally piloted aircraft.
