TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE
"It is possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill."
Wilbur Wright, American inventor/aviator (1867–1912)

After decades of contributions to aviation that have improved safety and efficiency, NASA remains an essential contributor and collaborator, recognized for our unique knowledge and skill in the realm of aeronautics research.

NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) is committed to technical excellence, to technical accomplishments that benefit the public, and to our role as steward of the scientific and technical workforce and facilities responsible for civil aeronautics research—a key United States asset.

NARI promotes innovation in aeronautics across a broad spectrum of aeronautical challenges in the nation’s air transportation system. It coordinates a proposal and award process for NASA civil servants and people external to NASA that invests in innovative, early-stage, and potentially revolutionary aviation concepts and technologies.
