MSU EcoCAR Partners with Aurora Flight Sciences

The Mississippi State University EcoCAR team has begun a partnership with Aurora Flight Sciences.  Aurora is a leader in flight technology such as unmanned aerial vehicles.  With help from engineers at Aurora, the team will be designing some vehicle components from carbon composites.  This will reduce the overall mass of the vehicle, therefore improving braking, acceleration, and fuel economy.  The team is working at Aurora two nights per week for the remainder of this semester.
