3 OAT undertakes high payoff activities beyond the risk limit or capability of commercial enterprises and, in partnership with industry, academia, and other government agencies, delivers validated technology and scientific knowledge Office of Aero-Space Transportation Role

4 To improve the air transportation system which is a fundamental element of the country’s infrastructureTo improve the air transportation system which is a fundamental element of the country’s infrastructure To assure the pre-eminence of U.S. military aircraftTo assure the pre-eminence of U.S. military aircraft To reduce the cost of access to spaceTo reduce the cost of access to space To provide the benefits of aerospace technology breakthroughs to non-aerospace organizationsTo provide the benefits of aerospace technology breakthroughs to non-aerospace organizations OAT’s Contributions to Improve Quality of Life

5 Pillar Three: Access to Space Pillar One: Global Civil Aviation Three Pillars for Success Pillar Two: Revolutionary Technology Leaps

6 Enabling Technology Goals Safety: Reduce the aircraft accident rate by a factor of five within 10 years and by a factor of ten within 25 years Environmental Compatibility: Reduce emissions of future aircraft by a factor of three within 10 years, and by a factor of five within 25 years Reduce the perceived noise levels of future aircraft by a factor of two from today’s subsonic aircraft within 10 years and by four within 25 years Prevailing noise at airports will be from cars and buses Meeting stringent international standards for noise & emissions could become a competitive advantage Air travel is the safest of all major modes of transportation Hull Losses per million departures Global Civil Aviation

7 Enabling Technology Goals Affordable Air Travel: While maintaining safety, triple the aviation system throughput, in all weather conditions, within 10 years Reduce the cost of air travel by 25% within 10 years and by 50% within 25 years Global Civil Aviation Increase fuel efficiency To accommodate the growth in air travel and air cargo, 12,000 new aircraft will be added in the next 20 years Need to reverse the trend of increasing cost of ownership and operation Joint NASA & FAA research into unrestricted flight will allow more aircraft to safely share airspace

8 Revolutionary Technology Leaps Enabling Technology Goals High-Speed Travel: Reduce the travel time to the Far East and Europe by 50% within 25 years, and do so at today’s subsonic ticket prices. General Aviation Revitalization: Invigorate the general aviation industry, delivering 10,000 aircraft annually within 10 years, and 20,000 aircraft within 25 years. Advanced Design for General Aviation Aircraft The High-Speed Civil Transport will Revolutionize Overseas Travel Low-Cost Materials and Structures for Affordability

9 Revolutionary Technology Leaps Enabling Technology Goals Tools of the Trade: Provide next-generation design tools and experimental aircraft to increase design confidence, and cut the development cycle time for aircraft in half. Hyper-X: Airbreathing propulsion research to Mach 10 Blended -Wing-Body Computational View of Complex Aerodynamics on an F-18 NASA’s Advanced Computational Research Facilities

10 Aerospace Technology Goals Revolutionizing America’s Space Launch Capabilities: Reduce the payload cost to low-Earth orbit by an order of magnitude, from $10,000 to $1,000 per pound, within 10 years and by an additional order of magnitude within 25 years Reduce the cost to interorbital transfer by an order of magnitude within 15 years, and reduce travel time for planetary missions by a factor of two within 15 years, and by an order of magnitude within 25 years Access to Space Advanced Mars Transportation Advanced Propulsion Research Vehicle to Revolutionize Space Access X-34 Air Launched Vehicle X-33 Technology Demonstrator
