Kaman’s K-Max unmanned aircraft system, well-known in Afghanistan, has completed more than 1,800 unmanned resupply missions and delivered more than four million pounds of supplies to troops throughout the region since being deployed in 2011. This week, the K-Max cargo-hauling copter made its national television debut as part of “Stephen Hawking’s Brave New World” series on the Discovery Network’s Science Channel.
During the “Code Red” episode, which aired April 30, viewers virtually toured the inside of the K-MAX with Professor Chris Eliasmith and learned about its capabilities firsthand from three Lockheed Martin employees. In its second season, the original Canadian series features Professor Hawking and his team of scientists, who travel the world investigating cutting-edge innovations and their impact on the future.
