In this paper, an integrated system for the design, development, and testing of guidance, navigation, and control algorithms for unmanned air vehicles was presented. Extensive use was made of commercial off-the-shelf hardware. This kept costs relatively low and made the system easily scaleable. Sophisticated autocode tools allowed a two man team to write, test, and maintain thousands of lines of error-free real time code. In a single unified environment, the avionics system was designed, simulated, and tested incorporating hardware-in-the-loop and used to control an aircraft in flight. Results of application to a rapid flight test prototyping system (RFTPS) for a prototype unmanned aircraft named Frog are presented
