SCRA Applied R&D today announced the award of a $2.8 million contract by the U.S. Army Research Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) Aviation Development Directorate. The contract is to develop representative composite structures to meet weight and structural requirements for future vertical lift aircraft. The contract will be executed over a two year period.
The SCRA-led team, which includes Aurora Flight Sciences and Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, will leverage and advance a large body of prior government-funded advanced materials research to develop representative composite structures for vertical lift vehicles.

We look forward to providing advanced material solutions to meet future aviation needs.”
