Skyborg, an experimental Air Force system designed to use artificial intelligence (AI) to guide autonomous drones in battle situations, has taken flight for the first time. The flight is a milestone in that effort, both for the Pentagon and key contractors including Leidos Holdings (NYSE: LDOS) and Kratos Defense & Security Solutions (NASDAQ: KTOS) that are leading the charge. The Air Force conducted an April 29 test launched from Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida.
