D.2 Transformational Tools and Technologies (TTT) Project

Amendment 2 to the NASA ARMD Research Opportunities in Aeronautics (ROA) 2019 NRA has been posted on the NSPIRES site.

Research proposals are sought in seven subtopic areas for Appendix D.2 in support of Transformational Tools and Technologies (TTT).

The Transformational Tools and Technologies


(TTT) Project advances state-of-the-art computational and experimental tools and technologies that are vital to aviation applications in the six strategic thrusts.

The project develops new computer-based tools, computational fluid dynamics models, and associated scientific knowledge that will provide first-of-a-kind capabilities to analyze, understand, and predict aviation concept performance.

These revolutionary tools will be applied to accelerate NASA’s research and the community’s design and introduction of advanced concepts.

The Project also explores technologies that are broadly critical to advancing ARMD strategic outcomes.

Such technologies include the understanding of new types of strong and lightweight materials, innovative controls techniques, and experimental methods.

The TTT Materials and Structures Discipline emphasizes improved multifunctional and high temperature materials for airframe and engine application, as well as integrated multiscale modeling and simulation tool development to improve validated first-principles materials and structural modeling.

The investment in specific models and a cyber-physical-social ecosystem framework will be consistent with the recently developed 2040 Vision study results.

TTT develops multifunctional materials and adaptive structures for lightweight actuation and mechanical components (such as tribological components, energy storage, and thermal management) for reconfigurable aircraft component concepts (airframe and engine).

Development of these multifunctional materials and structural configurations can reduce weight and enable innovative aircraft component concepts while simultaneously meeting multiple airframe or engine performance requirements.

TTT also develops improved Multi-Disciplinary Design, Analysis, & Optimization (MDAO) and systems analysis tools to enable multi-disciplinary integration.

All of these technologies will support and enable concept development and benefits assessment across multiple ARMD programs and disciplines.

NOIs are due April 2, 2020 and Proposals are due April 27, 202 0.
