NASA conducts cutting-edge, fundamental research


NASA conducts cutting-edge, fundamental research in traditional and emerging disciplines to help transform the nation's air transportation system, and to support future air and space vehicles.

Our goals are to improve airspace capacity and mobility, improve aviation safety, and improve aircraft performance while reducing noise, emissions and fuel burn.

Our world-class capability is built on a tradition of expertise in aeronautical engineering and its core research areas, including aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, materials and structures, propulsion, dynamics and control, sensor and actuator technologies, advanced computational and mathematical techniques, and experimental measurement techniques.
