Rollout of Advanced Composite Cargo Aircraft

The Advanced Composite Cargo Aircraft is rolled out in May 2009 at Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works, U.S. Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, Calif. The ACCA is a modified Dornier 328J aircraft. The fuselage aft of the crew station and the vertical tail were removed and replaced with completely new structural designs made of advanced composite materials fabricated using out-of-autoclave curing. Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio oversees the ACCA program. (Lockheed Martin photo)

Air Force Funds New Generation of Energy Efficient UAVs

With AFOSR funding, a team from the University of Michigan is working on a project to integrate solar power cheaply and easily into the base materials used to build UAVs. The team is pictured above posing around a customized reel-to-reel coating apparatus they developed for making large quantities of fiber-based energy conversion devices. (Center) Max Shtein, an assistant professor working on optoelectronic materials and devices, thin-film processing (Left to Right) Kevin Pipe, an assistant professor working on thermal phenomena in materials and devices; Brendan O'Connor, a graduate student working on organic solar cells on fibers; Abhishek Yadav, a graduate student working on thermoelectric devices on fibers; and Steven Morris, a graduate student working on reel-to-reel deposition of films and devices on fibers.
