INTEGRATED SYSTEMS RESEARCH PROGRAM
As the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) evolves, researchers must address the national challenges of mobility, capacity, safety, security, energy and the environment in order to meet the expected growth in air traffic.

The Integrated Systems Research Program (ISRP) focuses on maturing and integrating NextGen technologies into major vehicle/operational systems and subsystems that will address these national challenges.

Using a system-level approach, NASA researchers explore, assess and demonstrate the benefits of those technologies in an operationally relevant environment.

By focusing on technologies that have already proven their merit at the fundamental research level, ISRP will help transition them more quickly to the aviation community, as well as inform future fundamental research needs. The program will focus on integrated system-level research of interest and importance to the aviation stakeholder community.

The program synchronizes its work with the long-term, foundational research conducted by other programs within the directorate, and closely coordinates with research efforts of other federal government agencies.

ISRP organizes its research under two projects. The Environmentally Responsible Aviation Project focuses on selecting vehicle concepts and technologies that can simultaneously reduce aircraft fuel burn, noise and emissions. The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration in the National Airspace System (NAS) Project contributes capabilities that reduce the technical barriers related to the safety and operational challenges associated with enabling routine UAS to the NAS.
