FUNDAMENTAL AERONAUTICS PROJECTS
Research within the Fundamental Aeronautics Program spans an array of topics, from foundational science to multidisciplinary, systems-level development and integration. Research disciplines falling within the Fundamental Aeronautics purview include aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, and aeroelastics to materials, structures, propulsion and power, dynamics control, experimental techniques, computational techniques, and others.

Fundamental Aeronautics is configured into four projects:

Conceptual art of subsonic fixed wing aircraft The Subsonic Fixed Wing Project
Conceptual art of a dual-rotor helicopter and its airflows The Subsonic Rotary Wing Project
Conceptual art of commercial supersonic transport The Supersonics Project
Conceptual art of the ATK HyBoLT hypersonic testbed. The Hypersonics Project


NASA headquarters oversees research projects within Fundamental Aeronautics, with implementation occurring principally at four NASA Research CentersLangley Research Center, Virginia; Glenn Research Center, Ohio; and Ames Research Center and Dryden Flight Research Center, both in California.
