Advanced Development Programs

Advanced Development Programs (ADP), also known as Skunk Works®, has built a strong foundation of achievement in aerospace by creating breakthrough technologies and landmark aircraft that continually redefine flight. Many notable aircraft developed by ADP have received the prestigious Collier Trophy from the National Aeronautic Association.

ADP’s advanced technology solutions for manned and unmanned systems draw on world-class capabilities in conceptual design, systems engineering and integration, complex project management, software development and rapid prototyping. These core ADP capabilities of today tie to the foundation of the Skunk Works® where the mantra, “quick, quiet and quality,” guides each and every project from concept to flight.
