Abstract:

To meet the aviation needs of our Nation now and in the future, the Federal government must continue to advance U.S. technological leadership in aeronautics by fostering a vibrant and dynamic aeronautics community that includes government, industry, and academia. A strong national program of research and development RD for aeronautics technology forms the foundation of the U.S. aeronautics and aviation enterprise. Aeronautics RD is critical for national security and homeland defense, an efficient national air transportation system, and the economic well-being and quality of life of our citizens. This National Aeronautics Research and Development Plan Plan lays out high-priority national aeronautics RD challenges, goals, and supporting objectives to guide the conduct of U.S. aeronautics RD activities through 2020 as called for by Executive Order 13419 National Aeronautics RD, which established the National Aeronautics RD Policy. As the first in a biennial update process, this Plan provides focused updates to a number of specific RD goals and objectives in the National Plan for Aeronautics Research and Development and Related Infrastructure published in 2007.
