The 2012 Innovation Hall of Fame Induction Honoring Ashish Bagai '90, '92 and '95 Program Manager, Tactical Technology Office, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Kim Engineering Building 4:30 p.m. November 8, 2012
Ashish Bagai '90, '92, '95, helped design and build the Sikorsky X2 TechnologyTM (X2) demonstrator aircrafta coaxial-rotor, compound helicopter that flew 100 mph faster than current production models. Bagai was responsible for the aerodynamic design of the aircraft's main rotor blades, a key element in its success. Technologies from the X2 will change the way helicopters operate, delivering higher speeds and radically improved performance in medical, search and rescue and military applications while maintaining the efficient hovering and low-speed attributes of conventional rotary-wing aircraft. The X2 earned Bagai and his team at Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation the prestigious Robert J. Collier Trophy in 2011one of aviations highest honors.
