300+ hours of autonomous flight
The S-76B Sikorsky Autonomy Research Aircraft (SARA) is equipped with MATRIX™ Technology. We’re working closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to certify MATRIX so that it will be available on current and future commercial and military aircraft. We’re also introducing phase one MATRIX Technology to our S-92 helicopter, offering advanced computing power that enables autonomous landing technology.
