[SatNews] Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Politechnika Warszawska (Warsaw Polytechnic) will jointly conduct an advanced applied research program in the field of integration between manned and unmanned airborne platform systems.
The program adds to Lockheed Martin's already strong industrial and academic partnerships in Poland to motivate young Polish engineers to address tomorrow's defense and industrial needs. Principally staffed by university research students, the program focuses upon advancing development, optimization of multiple systems within aircraft and ground station networks, and enhancing capabilities. This joint effort cultivates recent advancements in aircraft technologies that automate flight planning and coordinate search, locate, and track missions across a variety of manned and unmanned aerial platforms. Lockheed Martin will assist in the enhanced development of Warsaw Polytechnic's unmanned airborne platform assets and simulation systems to support university software development.
"The project of enhancing technical capabilities in the field of modeling a force structure and optimization of a network of systems, implemented by a team of students from Warsaw Polytechnic, is an excellent example of a research collaboration and technology transfer between Lockheed Martin and a higher education institution in Poland," said Professor Janusz Narkiewicz, the leader and scientific manager of the project from Warsaw Polytechnic. "Our mission is to develop practical solutions that will apply in the management of Polish defense capabilities and significantly affect the development and future of science in Poland."
