Axient Team Members Honored with ARMD 2023 Associate Administrator ‘Pushing the Envelope’ Award

NASA engineers put the X-57 Maxwell, NASA’s first all-electric X-plane, through its initial telemetry tests at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in California, testing the aircraft’s ability to transmit data to teams on the ground. The data is packaged and transmitted down to ground assets, where it’s decoded into a format that can be presented to a flight control team to look at screens in real time for flight operations. X-57’s goal is to help set certification standards for emerging electric aircraft markets.
