Forum 360: NASA Aeronautics Shaping the Future of Flight 18 June 2019 0930 - 1130

Location

Today, we stand on the cusp of the next era in aviation. Recent technology advances are coming together to enable breakthroughs in the speed and efficiency of the transport aircraft that are the backbone of the aviation system. Other breakthroughs will enable new markets for smaller aircraft, from unmanned aircraft systems to new modes of passenger transport.

To ensure research focus on enabling the next era in aviation, NASA Aeronautics guides its efforts with its visionary strategic implementation plan (http://www.aeronautics.nasa.gov/strategic-plan.htm) that lays out an approach to address growing demand for global air mobility, the major challenges of energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, and the opportunity for convergence between traditional aeronautical disciplines and technology advances in information, communications, energy and other rapidly evolving technologies.

Panelists will include senior leaders from NASA Aeronautics who will discuss strategic directions for sustainable growth in subsonic transports, the safe and efficient emergence of new small aircraft markets, the reemergence of the supersonic transport market, and the fully integrated airspace system in which they must co-exist.
