DARPA Requests Information For Wing-In-Ground Effect Aircraft For The U.S. Military

The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) released a Request for Information (RFI) in mid-August 2021 seeking a Wing-in-Ground (WIG) cargo aircraft for the US military. DARPA set some requirements for the WIG plane, but provided no data, sketches, artwork, examples, or models to bias and hinder the Defense industries and universities’ WIG plane concepts. The deadline for WIG concept submission is mid-September 2021.
