Lockheed Names 2 C130J Roll-On/Roll-Off Mission System Design Competition Winners in India; Abhay Paranjape Comments

Lockheed-Martin-BlueLockheed Martin has named teams from Indian Institute of Technology Chennai and University of Petroleum and Energy Studies as winners of a competition to design roll-on/roll-off mission systems for the C130J aircraft during an awards ceremony in New Delhi Tuesday.

Lockheed unveiled the C-130J Roll-On/Roll-Off University Design Challenge in India in 2014 in an effort to improve the aircraft’s capability to support disaster relief missions, the company said Wednesday.

“We are committed to working with the teams to enhance their initial concepts further and bring them to maturity in the global marketplace,” said Abhay Paranjape, director of air mobility business development for India at Lockheed.

Each of the winning teams received a research grant from Lockheed to build prototypes of their modules for possible integration with C-130J Super Hercules planes.

The university teams will also work with mentors from India’s Defense Research and Development Organization to develop a marketing strategy for their concepts.
