Title: Friction Drag Reduction System
Agency: NASA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $0.00
 

Abstract:

Accurate Automation Corporation proposes to design a system for reducing the friction drag on an aircraft by introducing an ion space charge into the aircraft¿s boundary layer. We will develop a detailed model for the drag reduction mechanism; evaluate the system performance; evaluate alternative electromagnetic and/ or mechanical processes for generating a space charge in the boundary layer of an aircraft from a bipolar weakly ionized gas; and design a wind tunnel experiment to evaluate the technology. The wind tunnel experiment will be fabricated and tested, and a conceptual design for a flight test aircraft will be performed in Phase II. This is the solution to a successful Phase III flight test, evaluation and production program.
