Jetoptera selected by the U.S. Air Force for the High-Speed Vertical Take-Off and Landing (HSVTOL) Concept Showcase

The HSVTOL Aircraft System with Adaptive Fluidic Propulsion Solution proposed by Jetoptera, Inc. with Northrop Grumman Corporation has been down-selected for the next phase of the High-Speed Vertical Take Off and Landing (HSVTOL) “Challenge” sponsored by AFWERX. AFWERX is the Air Force's premier innovation program. Through workshops, crowdsourced campaigns, and live events, AFWERX rapidly connects Air Force problems with solution providers in companies of all sizes in the private sector.

Thirty-five solutions were selected out of 218 entries.

The Concept Showcase of the AFWERX HSVTOL will occur next month and it will involve briefings to USAF personnel to discuss each technology solution and how it will support Air Force mission sets and strategies.

“We at Jetoptera are very excited to team up with Northrop Grumman to offer a unique solution to the AFWERX HSVTOL Challenge team in this collaborative, innovative process and to bring the best technologies faster to the Warfighter” Jetoptera CEO Andrei Evulet said.
