NASA aeronautics has made decades of contributions to aviation. Every U.S. commercial aircraft and U.S. control tower has NASA-developed technology on board.

Aeronautics research continues to play a vital supporting role to air travel and commerce by enabling game-changing technologies and innovation that allows the U.S. aviation industry to continue to grow and maintain global competitiveness.

NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) is responsible for developing tools and technologies to improve the efficiency, safety and adaptability of air transportation. ARMD guides its research efforts using a new strategic vision that expands understanding to the world stage and meets the global challenges of the day.

What this means for the flying public is that NASA's contributions to aviation will be even more relevant as ongoing research leads to new aircraft, improved mobility and safety, less strain on the environment, and an all-around better experience in the sky.

Our aeronautics research takes place at four facilities: NASA Ames Research Center, NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center, NASA Glenn Research Center and NASA Langley Research Center.
