Aurora Flight Sciences has been developing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for more than three decades. Aurora teamed with Stratasys to develop a notably complex 3D printed jet-powered UAV.
Aurora Flight Sciences in Manassas, VA, has been developing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for both the civil and military markets for many years. However, with advancing customer needs and requirements, its research and development center is using Stratasys 3D printing technology more frequently for production parts and tooling to help bring new innovations to unmanned flight.
Recently, engineers at Aurora and Stratasys embarked on an ambitious project: to build a jet-powered, thrust vectoring, blended wing body, remotely piloted aircraft.
