2013 Seedling Seminar

NASA Aeronautics presented a 3-day virtual technical seminar on July 9-11, 2013 to showcase innovative concepts developed by NASA researchers. Download a pdf copy of the agenda.

In August 2012, NASA Aeronautics awarded ARMD Seedling 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 civil servant-led teams at NASA Research Centers. The seminar was an opportunity for members of the NASA aeronautics community to view the results of this research and see how these innovative concepts might might complement and benefit their work and projects across the agency. The results were presented in seventeen 45 minute talks: 30 minutes for the presentation, 15 minutes for questions and clarifications.

The seminar was free and open to all. Watch the archive and download the slides below.
