About NASA-The Fundamental Aeronautics Program
he Fundamental Aeronautics Program is dedicated to the mastery and
intellectual stewardship of the core competencies of aeronautics for the
nation across all flight regimes. The corresponding long-term research that
the program performs is both focused and integrated across disciplines.
Using this research, the program provides feasible solutions to the
performance and environmental challenges of current and future air
vehicles. The results of our pre-competitive research are widely
disseminated and available to support the nation's aerospace industry.
Fundamental Aeronautics concentrates research in four areas: Subsonic Fixed
Wing, Subsonic Rotary Wing, Supersonics, and Hypersonics.
