Airborne 04.07.21: Wisk Sues Archer, PCSO R66 Police Chopper, Mars Heli Update

Also: Tuskegee Airmen Honored, Starship SN11 Blowup, Special Mission G550, Duncan's 100th Winglets

Wisk Aero, has filed a lawsuit against Archer Aviation. The lawsuit alleges that Archer's business is "built on intellectual property that is not theirs..." --

Also bringing claims for trade secret misappropriation and patent infringement. As detailed in the filing in federal court in the Northern District of California, this lawsuit claims Wisk's alleged discovery of suspicious file downloads by certain former employees who left Wisk to work for Archer, including thousands of files related to Wisk's confidential aircraft designs, component designs, system designs, manufacturing, and test data. Archer's recent disclosure of an aircraft design reportedly appears to be a copy of a design Wisk developed and submitted in a confidential patent application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office back in January 2020. Archer's aircraft disclosure was made in connection with its plan to merge with Atlas Crest Corporation. On April 2nd, Robinson Helicopter Company delivered R66 Police Helicopter serial number 1025 to Florida's Polk County Sheriff's Office (PCSO) -- just in time for Sun 'n Fun 2021! PCSO's R66 Police helicopter is the first R66 Police helicopter configured with a Wescam MX-10 EO/IR imaging system and an HD infrared sensor, a system widely used by homeland security and law enforcement agencies. Ingenuity has emerged from its first night on the Martian surface... Evening temperatures at Jezero Crater can plunge as low as minus 130 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 90 degrees Celsius), which can freeze and crack unprotected electrical components and damage the onboard batteries required for flight. Surviving that first night after being deployed from where it was attached to the belly of NASA’s Perseverance rover on April 3 is a major milestone for the 4-pound rotorcraft. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
