The mission of Sikorsky Innovations is to develop and mature the technologies, products and processes that will redefine the future of vertical flight. In pursuit of this goal, Sikorsky Innovations is maturing a broad range of advanced technologies, including the X2 Technology™ demonstrator, aware and adaptive aircraft systems, and optionally piloted aircraft.
Companies interested in meeting with Sikorsky should be prepared to discuss exactly how their work aligns with one (or more) of the six areas of interest to Sikorsky listed below:
1.Aware and adaptive aircraft technology, which can lead to significantly lower operating costs for the operators of helicopters, including via enhanced product lifecycle support
2.Autonomy, unmanned systems technology, robotics and enhanced man-unmanned teaming to help us develop and field “smarter” and safer helicopters operating in challenging environmental conditions and terrains
3.Aircraft safety-enhancing technologies and processes that can make rotorcraft operation even safer than they are today
4.Rapid prototyping of full or partial rotorcraft development programs
5.Clean technology that can make our helicopters or their development even more environmentally friendly and sustainable, including alternative power and fuels
6.Significantly speeding up and reducing the costs of development program via the use of advanced processes and technology including component qualification and/or certification
