PARTNERSHIPS
US ARMY LOGO United States Army
In September 2007, NASA and the U.S. Army formalized a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that expands the longstanding relationship between the two organizations and focuses on research to enable revolutionary capabilities in rotorcraft. The MOU covers rotorcraft aeronautics including flight dynamics and control, vehicle structures, propulsion, avionics, aeromechanics, safety and airspace management. The agreement is designed to ensure the free exchange of research information, reduce duplication and enhance long-term research planning for both organizations.

US AIR FORCE LOGO United States Air Force
In August 2006, NASA and the U.S. Air Force signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to formalize a new aeronautics research partnership. The MOU ensures the free exchange of research information, reduces duplication of research, and enhances long-term research planning on advanced aircraft design, propulsion development, materials development, and aviation safety.

DoD Logo Department of Defense
NASA and the Department of Defense have signed an agreement to develop an integrated national strategy for managing their respective aeronautical test facilities. The agreement expands the dialogue beyond the test and evaluation communities to include industry, academia and the science and technology interests from both agencies.

Under the terms of a 2006 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), NASA and the FAA will pursue complementary goals in aviation and space transportation. These goals include aviation and space transportation safety, airspace system efficiency, environmental compatibility, international leadership, and others.

Executive Office of the President of the United States Logo White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)
NASA is a member of the Aeronautics Science & Technology Subcommittee of the National Science & Technology Council's Committee on Technology. The Subcommittee was responsible for developing the National Aeronautics R&D Policy that was established by Executive Order in December 2006. The Subcommittee has just completed developing the National Plan for Aeronautics R&D and Related Infrastructure.

Joint Planning Office Logo Joint Planning & Development Office (JPDO)
NASA is a member of the JPDO along with the Department of Transportation, FAA, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Commerce, and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). The JPDO was established in 2003 to carry out the mandate for the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) initiative laid out in P.L.108-176 (VISION 100 - Century of Aviation Reauthorization). The NextGen is expected to be more flexible, resilient, scalable, adaptive and highly automated than today's air transportation system.
