Unmanned K-Max Finalist for Collier Trophy
Washington, D.C.-based National Aeronautical Association (NAA) has listed the unmanned Lockheed Martin/Kaman K-Max as one of seven finalists for the 2012 Robert J. Collier Trophy. The K-Max, which has been performing battlefield cargo resupply missions for the U.S. military since 2007, is competing against Felix Baumgartner and the Red Bull Stratos team, the Gulfstream G650 and the U.S. Air Force MC-12 Project Liberty team, as well as three NASA/JPL entrants—the Dawn Project, Mars Science Lab/Curiosity Project, and Voyager Interstellar Mission Project teams. Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner won the 2011 Collier Trophy.
