NASA Aeronautics Research Mission: New Ideas Sharpen Focus for Greener Aircraft

 

Written by Kathy Barnstorff
NASA Langley Research Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationHampton, VA – Leaner, greener flying machines for the year 2025 are on the drawing boards of three industry teams under contract to the NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate’s Environmentally Responsible Aviation Project.

Teams from The Boeing Company in Huntington Beach, CA, Lockheed Martin in Palmdale, CA, and Northrop Grumman in El Segundo, CA, have spent the last year studying how to meet NASA goals to develop technology that would allow future aircraft to burn 50 percent less fuel than aircraft that entered service in 1998 (the baseline for the study), with 75 percent fewer harmful emissions; and to shrink the size of geographic areas affected by objectionable airport noise by 83 percent.

Three proposed aircraft designs have varying levels of success in meeting tough NASA goals for reducing fuel use, emissions and noise all at the same time. (Image credit: NASA)
