NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationEdwards, CA – Aeronautics researchers at NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center recently completed flight tests of a unique experimental jet engine inlet design in the Channeled Center-body Inlet Experiment, or CCIE.

The experimental inlet was checked out on NASA Dryden’s F-15B aeronautics research test bed aircraft, which continues to be an innovative and cost-effective tool for flight test of advanced propulsion concepts.

NASA Dryden’s F-15B research testbed aircraft flew the CCIE experimental jet engine inlet to speeds up to Mach 1.74, or about 1.7 times the speed of sound. (NASA / Jim Ross)
