The Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) and Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] celebrated today the successful conclusion of a joint advanced applied research program focused on the integration between manned and unmanned airborne platform systems. The program builds on the strong industrial and academic partnership between Poland and Lockheed Martin aimed at motivating young Polish engineers to address tomorrow’s defense and industrial needs.
The goal of the team’s “Optimizing Unmanned System of Systems” (OpUSS) project was to develop new methods to optimally manage the multiple, different systems used in aircraft and ground stations simultaneously toward a common mission. The WUT team’s research was presented in June 2015 at the prestigious conference of the American Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) in Dallas, Texas, and the team’s three associated academic works were formally published by AIAA.
Prof. Janusz Narkiewicz, head of WUT’s Department of Automation and Aeronautical Systems, congratulated the team on a job well done. “In addition to strengthening the relationship between WUT, Polish academia and Lockheed Martin, the [WUT] team’s findings represent a significant contribution to the field of unmanned systems research,” said Prof. Narkiewicz. “We are very pleased with this team’s work and the outcome of this important project.”
Lockheed Martin assisted in the enhanced development of WUT’s unmanned airborne platform assets and simulation systems and supported the software development used during the research project.
