Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD)

NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) performs fundamental research in aeronautics and leading-edge fields to  support future air and space vehicles and better the nation’s air transportation systems. While the directorate focuses research efforts on NASA-related issues, they also research issues pertinent to civilian and commercial air travel. In addition, ARMD works to advance fundamental understanding of key aeronautics disciplines, including emissions, performance, efficiency, noise, and safety, making it possible to fly in any atmospheric conditions.[1]

Key Documents for ARMD include:

At present, six focus areas guide NASA’s aeronautics research to develop solutions for the increasing need for mobility, sustainability, and advances in information, communications and automation. These six areas include:

  1. Safe, efficient growth in global operations
  2. Innovation in commercial supersonic aircraft
  3. Ultra-efficient commercial vehicles
  4. Transition to low-carbon propulsion
  5. Real-time system safety assurance
  6. Assured autonomy for aviation transformation[2]
