The Northrop Grumman Collaboration Project was a student project that would work with both Cal Poly Pomona and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. The RFP was given at the beginning of each year from a pannel of students and engineers from Northrop Grumman and was to be completed by the end of each academic year. I was apart of this team for 3 years working with the UAV Team at Cal Poly Pomona. I was able to work with the manufacturing of the blended wing for the UAV. The teams had to work together to create a UAV, UGV and UUV that would communicate with each other for the mission of that year. I would help manufacture parts and assemble the blended wing for demos and testing. My last year I was apart of the testing team which would create documentation for tests and would build the necessary equipment needed for testing. From this project I learned how to partner with industry and present to industry.
