Garmin Wins 2020 Collier Trophy for Autoland

Other contenders for the award illuminate the tough competition in the field for 2020: the Bell V-280 Valor, Boeing’s Confident Travel Initiative, Reliable Robotics Remotely Operated Aircraft System (ROAS), SpaceX’s Falcon 9 and Dragon 2, the US Department of the Air Force Green Propellant Infusion Mission Team, and Yates Electrospace Corporation’s Silent Arrow.
