LEARN Seminar (September 6, 2017)

Transformative Aeronautics Concepts Program (TACP), presented a free one day virtual technical seminar on September 6, 2017 to showcase innovative aeronautics concepts developed by external researchers funded by NASA. The LEARN-funded Principal Investigator’s presented their research and results to NASA, as well as to the interested aeronautics community in general.

The LEARN grants were awarded to make deliberate investments in early-stage and potentially revolutionary aviation concepts and technologies that are aligned with NASA's mission. The seminar was an opportunity for members of the aeronautics community to view the results of this research and see how these innovative concepts might complement and benefit NASA work and projects across the agency.

NASA Technical Representatives were present from ARC, AFRC, LaRC and GRC.
