Sikorsky renews as ISR Strategic Partner

Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation has renewed its membership in ISR's Strategic Partners Program for a third year. Sikorsky is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of military and commercial helicopters; fixed-wing aircraft; spare parts and maintenance, repair and overhaul services for helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft; and civil helicopter operations. Sikorsky collaborates with Professor AndréTits (ECE/ISR) to research advanced algorithms for rotorcraft control. Alumnus Vineet Sahasrabudhe (Aerospace Engineering Ph.D. 1996), who was co-advised by Dr.Tits and Professor Roberto Celi (AE), is Sikorsky's technical lead.

“I have enjoyed collaborating with Sikorsky on a problem of mutual interest, and believe we are developing a solution which will be of significant value to Sikorsky,” Dr.Tits said.
