BOEING HELPS LAUNCH ENGINEERING CAREERS A team of 18 Naval Academy midshipmen received first prize May 9 in an inter-service academy engineering design competition funded by Boeing Company. The competition, now in its second year, required each academy’s team to design the cockpit of an aircraft for a mission nearly 30 years in the future. The company asked each academy’s team to design the cockpit that could control a futuristic aircraft similar as well as unmanned aerial and ground vehicles while conducting a typical air-toground and air-to-air strike mission. This year’s design was expected to work off the inaugural design from last year’s competition. > > S H I P M AT E
