Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation has become a partner in ISR's Strategic Partners Program. 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. Collaborations are with Professor André Tits (ECE/ISR) to research advanced algorithms for rotorcraft control. ISR Director Eyad Abed (ECE/ISR) says ISR is "very pleased to have Sikorsky partner with us in an area of shared strategic priority, and look forward to productive collaborations." 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 for this joint work.
