Annapolis Beats USAFA in Aircraft Design Competition
The US Naval Academy at Annapolis won a Boeing-sponsored inter-service academy competition to design a futuristic aircraft cockpit:
The competition, now in its second year, required each academy’s team to design the cockpit of an aircraft for a mission nearly 30 years in the future. The 2012 award was presented by President and CEO of Boeing Defense, Space and Security Dennis Muilenburg.
The company asked each academy’s team to design the cockpit that could control a futuristic aircraft similar as well as unmanned aerial and ground vehicles while conducting a typical air-to-ground and air-to-air strike mission.
USAFA won last year.
