Boeing‘s Aurora Flight Sciences subsidiary has adopted a software platform Lockheed Martin developed to help operators manage numerous unmanned vehicles for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. Aurora Flight Sciences purchased the Vehicle Control Station product in a move to accelerate its autonomous technology development efforts, Lockheed said Tuesday. VSCi is built upon an open architecture framework and designed […] More
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and Boeing‘s Aurora Flight Sciences subsidiary have agreed to transition aircraft technology developed through the DARPA-funded Vertical Takeoff and Landing Experimental Plane program to commercial applications. Aurora said Tuesday its XV-24 subscale vehicle demonstrator reached key aviation milestones during the course of the VTOL X-Plane project. The platform includes a a synchronous electric-drive […] More
Boeing‘s Aurora Flight Sciences subsidiary and Japan-based Socionext have partnered to develop a radar-enabled system that will be designed to protect consumer drones from collision. The Radar Flight Control Module will employ a single-chip 24 gigahertz radar that uses range measurement software to detect the presence, distance and speed of nearby objects, Socionext said Tuesday. Users will be able to […] More
Aurora Flight Sciences has demonstrated an autonomous version of the UH-1H helicopter as part of the Office of Naval Research‘s Autonomous Aerial Cargo Utility System program. The Boeing subsidiary said Wednesday the AACUS-Enabled UH-1H helicopter, or AEH-1, performed multiple flights at the Marine Corps Base Quantico to verify its capacity to conduct resupply missions autonomously in operationally relevant […] More
Aurora Flight Sciences has received a 12-month contract to further develop a subsonic aircraft technology as part of a NASA program that aims to increase fuel and operational efficiency and reduce noise of commercial planes. The company said Tuesday it will continue to work with Pratt & Whitney and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to advance the D8 […] More
The U.S. Army wants to partner with Manassas, Virginia-based Aurora Flight Sciences to develop technologies that will work to increase the speed, endurance payload capacity of unmanned vertical lift platforms. Rajneesh Singh, acting division chief at the Army Research Laboratory’s vehicle technology directorate, said in a statement published Tuesday both parties seek to initiate the project through a cooperative research and […] More
Aurora Flight Sciences has tested a technology demonstration platform designed to retrieve unmanned aerial systems as part of a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency program. DARPA said Monday the SideArm prototype worked to capture a Lockheed Martin-built Fury UAS flying at full speed. “SideArm aims to replicate carriers’ capability to quickly and safely accelerate and decelerate planes through a portable, […] More
Lockheed Martin‘s Sikorsky subsidiary and Aurora Flight Sciences have developed robotic systems that are designed to operate aircraft autonomously as part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency‘s Aircrew Labor In-Cockpit Automation System initiative, Defense News reported Wednesday. Valerie Insinna writes Jean Charles-Lede, program manager at DARPA’s tactical technology program office, said the ALIAS program seeks a platform that can eliminate the […] More
Aurora Flight Sciences has secured a six-month, $2.9 million contract to continue the development of the D8 subsonic commercial aircraft as part of NASA's aviation innovation efforts. The contract aims to help establish requirements for the experimental aircraft or X-Plane program and kick-start the research phase to further develop the D8 commercial airliner, Aurora said Sept. 13. The goal is […] More
Aurora Flight Sciences has received a potential two-year, $11 million contract modification to build an autonomous airborne cargo platform for the U.S. Navy. The Autonomous Aerial Cargo Utility System is an Office of Naval Research-funded program that seeks to allow remote-controlled, vertical take-off and landing platforms to perform cargo deliveries in unprepared landing sites, the […] More
Aerospace company Aurora Flight Sciences and additive manufacturing firm Stratasys have designed and built a high-speed unmanned aerial vehicle using 3-D printing technology. Stratasys said Monday the UAV can fly faster than 150 miles per hour and is made of lightweight materials. Scott Sevcik, aerospace and defense senior business development manager for vertical solutions at Stratasys, noted […] More
