MTSU Working With Army and Marines

Middle Tennessee State University has entered into a historic educational partnership with the Army and Marines studying how unmanned aircraft and military robots can work together in order to save lives.
MTSU Aerospace Pro-Pilot student Steve Lawn taught himself how to operate the military robot on loan from the Robotic Systems Joint Project office, which has a satellite office at Redstone Arsenal near Huntsville, AL.
Lawn and other MTSU Aerospace students are helping to advance cutting-edge technology by researching how robots on the ground can be used in tandem with unmanned aircrafts in the air.
This is the second partnership MTSU has signed with military officials. Last year the university entered an agreement that would support educational and research efforts of the Army’s Raven unmanned aircraft.
