The Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) wants to incorporate Autonomous technologies in the AMCA Next Generation Fighter Program for which it has started work on a fully automatic vision-based Autonomous Taxi Take-off and Landing System (ATTOL), Image Recognition Technology and other sensors.

It will allow automatic taxing of AMCA from the hangar to the main runway while maintaining the runway center line with the default takeoff speed and enable autonomous takeoff and landing on its own that will help pilots to focus less on aircraft operations and more on strategic decision making and mission management.
The Autonomous Taxi Take-off and Landing System (ATTOL) feature will be available in the Unmanned AMCA variant but it will also be available in the manned AMCA, 13-ton Indian Strike Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (ISUAV) and the Future Unmanned Fighter Aircraft (FUFA).
