Advanced Air Transport Technology Project


Advanced air transport research is focused on the future, with an eye towards the N+3 generation, targeting vehicles that are three generations beyond the current state-of-the-art (generation N) and requiring mature technology solutions in the 2025 to 2030 timeframe. NASA’s vision for advanced fixed wing transport aircraft is to enable revolutionary advances in energy efficiency and environmental compatibility of these future generations of aircraft. These technological solutions are critical to reduce the impact of aviation on the environment even as this industry and the corresponding global transportation continue to grow.

ASAB provides system analysis and technology integration support to the AATT project, including project planning and decision analysis, technology portfolio analysis, and the development and assessment of advanced concepts. A suite of aircraft design and analysis tools are used to evaluate advanced concepts and technologies based on their impact on the primary objectives of the AATT project – reducing aircraft fuel consumption, noise, and emissions.
