Flight results will validate whether the seamless design with its advanced lightweight materials can reduce wing structural weight, improve fuel economy and efficiency, and reduce environmental impacts. NASA’s green aviation project is one step closer to developing technology…
Northrop Grumman has been awarded a contract from Naval Air Systems Command to deliver its next-generation mission computer for the Marine Corps' H-1 helicopter upgrade program.
