Spring 2015 Seedling Technical Seminar

NASA Aeronautics  presented a 2-day virtual technical seminar on March 18–19, 2015 to showcase innovative concepts developed by Seedling researchers, primarily featuring work from the 2013 Seedling Phase II funds.

NASA Aeronautics awards the 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 go to civil servant-led teams at NASA Research Centers. This seminar is an opportunity for members of the NASA aeronautics community to view the results of this research and see how these innovative concepts might complement and benefit their work and projects across the agency. The results were presented in seven talks: 30 minutes for each presentation and 10–15 minutes for discussion and questions. Each session featured a special guest NASA leader as Keynote Speaker and Moderator.

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