THIS NOTICE IS PROVIDED FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY.
THIS OPPORTUNITY IS AVAILABLE ONLY TO LOCKHEED MARTIN CORPORATION, LOCKHEED MARTIN AERONAUTICS COMPANY, PALMDALE, CA.
The Supersonics Project is aligned with the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) principles of maintaining intellectual stewardship of aeronautical core competencies for the nation in the supersonic flight regime and of focusing research in areas that are appropriate to NASAs unique capabilities. The Project supports the Fundamental Aeronautics Programs (FAP) strategy of developing systems level multidisciplinary capabilities for supersonic civilian and military applications.
The Supersonics Project is a broad based effort designed to develop knowledge,capabilities and technologies that support all vehicles that fly in the supersonic speed regime. Key elements of the project include the development of systems concepts and the completion of systems studies. These studies are used to identify potential requirements for future supersonic aircraft; assessment of the effectiveness of the projects current technology portfolio and the identification of new research and technology opportunities.
Another key element of the Supersonics Project involves conducting systems levelexperimental validation activities which complement the current project investments to provide proven capabilities that address the efficiency, environmental, and performance challenges of supersonic aircraft.
NASA Glenn Research Center intends to issue a contract entitled “Advanced Concept Studiesfor Supersonic Commercial Transport Aircraft Entering Service in the 2018-2020 Period toconduct systems level experimental validations in support of NASAs N+2 Supersonic Effort. The proposal was previously submitted in response to a NASA Research Announcement (NRA) NNH08ZEA001N-SUP-3, Research Opportunities in Aeronautics (ROA) 2008 issued September 30, 2008. This effort will be performed at Lockheed Martin Corporation, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, Palmdale, CA, authorized under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of2009. Oral communications are not acceptable in response to this notice. This announcement will not result in a Request for Proposal; this announcement is for informational purposes only.
