NASA Aeronautics presented a one-day virtual technical seminar on September 30, 2015 to showcase innovative concepts developed by researchers who have been funded by the ARMD Leading Edge Aeronautics Research for NASA (LEARN) Phase II Fund. If you'd like, please download a pdf copy of the agenda.
NASA Aeronautics awards the ARMD LEARN Fund grants to make deliberate investments in early-stage and potentially revolutionary aviation concepts and technologies that are aligned with NASA's mission. These grants went to teams external to NASA. The objective of this one day seminar was to increase awareness of LEARN activities within NASA projects, to provide technical feedback to LEARN principal investigators from NASA Program/Project Technical Representatives, and educate/inform the public. This will help facilitate transfer of LEARN-developed technologies within NASA and disseminate LEARN findings to the external aeronautics community, including academia, industry, and the general public.
The results were presented in four talks: 45 minutes for each presentation and 10–15 minutes for discussion and questions from technical representatives and participants.
The presenters slides are available below along with their recorded presentations.
