  N7032C Successfully performed 14 autonomouos takeoffs and landings from a ship ( Allure Shadow) during flight test. For the test, conducted from a private ship off the coast of Florida, Boeing integrated a commercial-off-the-shelf takeoff-and-landing system with Proto type Unmanned Little Bird's automated flight control system. Two safety poilots were aboard the optionally piloted aircraft to maintain situational awareness and to be able to take control of the aircraft, though that was not required. The aircraft accumulated 20 flight hours with 100% avaiability.
