Raleigh, NC, March 11, 2015 – Advanced Aerospace Solutions (AdvAero) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded NASA’s prestigious 2014 Small Business Subcontractor of the Year Award in recognition of its outstanding contribution to NASA in 2014. This award relates to work performed by the AdvAero’s team on a previously-announced contract that involves the use of Marinvent’s Piaggio P180 Avanti advanced flight test aircraft and flight test team for the flight test and evaluation of one of NASA’s latest NextGen technologies called the Traffic Aware Strategic Aircrew Requests (TASAR).
“AdvAero has been working very closely with NASA Langley providing flight test and evaluation services for the TASAR NextGen technology as a subcontractor to Engility Corporation for the past three years,” said John Maris, CEO of AdvAero. “We have established an excellent working relationship with the team at NASA and Engility, and with our other partners on the NextGen research team. We are absolutely delighted to have been recognized by NASA for our contribution to the project in this manner. This award is extremely significant to us and to our JV Partner Marinvent, whose team and Piaggio Avanti Flying Avionics Test Bed have been an integral part of this project with us. So it is with great pride that AdvAero accepts the award on behalf of both companies.”
