National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has launched a program Spanwise Adaptive Wing (SAW) with Boeing and Area-I aeronautics company to test wings equipped with actuators that would enable them to fold during flight. The folding wings project could provide the ability to modify wings for maximum efficiency depending on flight conditions,
Aurora Flight Sciences recently tested a system that allows traditional helicopters to fly unmanned. The Autonomous Aerial Cargo/Utility System, a kit that attaches to full-scale rotary-wing aircraft and allows them to fly in and out of austere landing zones with little human assistance, was attached to a Bell 206 helicopter on May 25 and flown around Bealeton, Va
Aurora Flight Sciences has successfully demonstrated its LightningStrike, Vertical Take-off and Landing Experimental Plane (VTOL x-plane) for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) at a US military facility. The flight of the subscale aircraft met an important DARPA risk reduction requirement, focusing on validation of the aerodynamic design and flight control system
Alcoa Defense has been awarded a five-year contract worth $50 million from the US Army for R&D projects focused on developing innovative, light-weighting solutions for ground combat vehicles. The “Ground Vehicle Light-Weighting” contract is to support efforts to accelerate technology research and development and provide engineering solutions for Department of Defense ground vehicles and intelligent ground systems
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced Thursday that the Virginia-based Aurora Flight Sciences was awarded a contract worth $89 million for Phases II development of vertical take-off and landing X-plane research project.
