Subsonic Rotary Wing

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is inviting contract and cooperative agreement applications for research to enable radical improvements in the transportation system using rotary wing vehicles. The program supports the development of validated high-fidelity, multi-disciplinary analysis and design tools, and demonstrations of advanced rotorcraft technology that: Enable
variable-speed rotor concepts; Simultaneously increase aerodynamic efficiency, control dynamic stall, reduce vibration, and reduce noise; Reduce interior noise and vibration; and Contribute to the commercial viability of large rotary wing transport systems in NextGen.

FUNDS: $1.8 million is available over three years for two awards;
