This paper describes the hardware development for an autonomous formation flight research project at West Virginia University. Each aircraft test bed was outfitted with an inertial navigation system (INS), GPS receiver and telemetry system tailored to perform the formation flight experiment. This paper provides a detailed summary about the aircraft test-bed, on-board electronic payload, and the various flight testing phases leading to the final 3-aircraft formation demonstration
