The X-56A has a new home! The latest in a long series of experimental research aircraft, or X-planes, recently arrived at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center. Lockheed Martin, developer of the X-56A Multi-Utility Technology Testbed (MUTT), is currently using the aircraft to explore technologies for active flutter suppression and gust load alleviation for the Air Force Research Laboratory's Multi-utility Aeroelastic Demonstration program.

NASA's Flight Opportunities Program has selected 13 space technology payloads for flights on commercial reusable launch vehicles, and a commercial parabolic aircraft. These flights provide cutting-edge technologies with a valuable platform to conduct tests, before they enter use in the harsh environment of space. 

You can learn more about the payloads selected here: http://go.usa.gov/k3Cz

Only a few more days to sign up for the ACCESS II NASA Social being hosted here at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center and at our Hangar in Palmdale, Calif.!

For those that have never been to a NASA Social at AFRC before, this event gives you a behind-the-scenes look at flight operations and research projects happening on center. This particular event will focus on our ACCESS (Alternative Fuel Effects on Contrails and Cruise Emissions) Flight Experiments, in which NASA scientists will test and measure a bio-fuel derived from camelina plant oil.

NASA has issued a Request for Information (RFI) soliciting potential partners interested in using the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) aircraft for scientific investigations or for other potential uses. 

The SOFIA team will conduct an Industry Day April 11 at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center Bldg. 703 in Palmdale, Calif., to provide detailed information to potential partners. Representatives can meet with the SOFIA program staff and take a tour of the aircraft. A number of briefings will be given on SOFIA's science program, the aircraft, its operational and life-cycle costs, as well as potential partnership mechanisms. 

For more information, the RFI is available at: http://go.nasa.gov/1jvKupw

Introduction

The Armstrong Flight Research Center is NASA's primary center for atmospheric flight research and operations. NASA Armstrong is critical in carrying out the agency's missions of space exploration, space operations, scientific discovery, and aeronautical research and development. 

Located at Edwards, California, in the western Mojave Desert, Armstrong Flight Research Center is uniquely situated to take advantage of the excellent year-round flying weather, remote area, and visibility to test some of the nation's most exciting air vehicles.
