UTC Aerospace Systems focuses on aircraft, said Craig Olin, business manager, speaking at the Jamestown Kiwanis meeting. UTC in Jamestown has about 490 employees and helps with complete system management. Cargo is Jamestown UTC’s core competency. UTC, in general, helps with all aspects of an aircraft with the exception of engines, Olin said.
One of UTC’s future opportunities is the Lockheed Martin Airship. This airship helps connect cargo to rural or remote areas. One of those areas may be oil fields, Olin said. The airship can land on an open field or even water. It can carry heavy and odd-shaped cargo, even full-sized pay loaders. In addition, the airship also carries passengers similar to a traditional aircraft.
