Army moving towards Tactical Open Government Architecture (TOGA) univeral UAS control interface.

The Army is working on developing the equivalent of a universal remote for its unmanned aerial systems, which would allow pilots to control more than one type of UAS while reducing the amount of training required.

The service is planning to combine the interfaces for its primary ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) platforms, the Gray Eagle and Shadow UAS, as well as incorporate other small UAS into the system.
