    Flights tests of a smartphone-
    assisted automatic ground
    collision avoidance system at
    NASA's Dryden Flight Research
    Center consistently commanded
    evasive maneuvers when it
    sensed that the unmanned test
    aircraft was getting too close to
    mountainous terrain. When fully
    developed, the technology could
    help prevent controlled-flight-
    into-terrain accidents by general
    aviation and unmanned aircraft.
