Stealth pilots, high school students collaborate to create innovative part for $2.2 billion aircraft
Students on the Knob Noster High School robotics team designed a protective panel that covers four switches in the cockpit of the $2.2 billion B-2 Stealth Bomber. Each panel costs $1.25 to produce. A four-switch panel called the airframe mounted accessory drive, or AMAD, sits on the left side of the B-2’s two-person cockpit. The AMAD switches control the connection of the engines to the hydraulic and generator power of the aircraft. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Kayla White)
