Vita reaches R&D agreement with the US Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory
Today, Vita Inclinata Technologies, an aerospace company developing stability solutions for helicopter hoisting and sling load missions proudly announces the signing of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory (USAARL) for the research and flight testing of the Load Stability System. Working with USAARL’s Airworthiness Certification and Evaluation Division (ACED) to identify the criteria required for operational use, Vita will be able to optimize the LSS for use in US Army helicopter operations. With the increase in helicopter innovation and operations, the need for helicopter load stabilization solutions is becoming a pressing reality, one that Vita aims to change under this CRADA with USAARL.
CTO, Derek Sikora will be the Principal Investigator on the collaboration effort. Mr. Sikora has been the technical lead on multiple Aerospace Systems Engineering efforts, including Vita’s ongoing USAF contracts. The Vita team and USAARL will collaborate to qualify Vita’s systems as Safe-to-Fly for all MEDVAC operations.
