Advanced Composite Cargo Flight Demonstrator: To download full announcement, click on the words "FULL ANNOUNCEMENT" at the top of this page, to the right of the "SYNOPSIS" button!!!! The Air Force Research Laboratory Air Vehicles Directorate (AFRL/VA) is planning for the design, development, and manufacture of a technology demonstration aircraft that features advanced structural design and manufacturing techniques integrated with advanced aerodynamic design. The purpose of this aircraft is to demonstrate the application of structural design and manufacturing technologies that can significantly reduce the structural weight and cost of future military transport type aircraft. The proposed demonstrator is visualized as an X-type aircraft with an emphasis on innovative structural configurations and concepts. It shall be sufficiently complex to realistically represent the demands of next generation tactical cargo and provide adequate demonstration that the selected technologies can meet such demands.
