A team of research students and staff from Warsaw University of Technology said they have successfully demonstrated the first phase of flight test and integration of unmanned aircraft platforms with an autonomous mission control system.
The demonstration marks a significant milestone in a partnership between the university and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) that began earlier this year.
The purpose of this project, which is principally staffed by university research students, is to optimize the performance of unmanned aerial vehicles when flying in fleets manned aircraft, in order to make the best use of available assets for any given mission. The program adds to Lockheed Martin´s strong links with Polish industry and commitment to supporting the development of engineering excellence by partnering with academic and research institutions.
Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 113,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
