NASA Langley technologies to enable new markets in SUAS

NASA Langley Research Center and our industry partners have made tremendous progress in achieving technology demonstrators for advanced small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS). These technologies showcase the ability to achieve new unmanned civil aviation markets due to a four times improvement in cruise efficiency, low noise for close proximity operations and high propulsion redundancy that ensures ultra-safe operations and community friendliness. Please visit our three VTOL cruise efficient aircraft (Greased Lightning, Lotus, RotorWing), as well as other technologies, namely the ASROV control system, Halback array electric motor, high efficiency series hybrid engine.
