In a continued effort to develop the new air transportation ecosystem, NASA Aeronautics will focus on new forms of aircraft, as well as the wider system in which these aircraft will operate. Aviation Maintenance, and the development of the workforce for it, are imperative to the future of air transportation.
NASA has published a funding opportunity to address the challenge. Research proposals are being sought to focus on key maintenance and training challenges facing the next-generation of air transportation. Proposing organizations must be an accredited, degree-granting U.S. college or university. Funding for granted proposals is up to $300,000/year for a duration of two years and is expected to begin Fall 2023.
Notices of Intent (NOIs) are encouraged, although not required, to be submitted by May.
An Applicant’s Workshop will be held on Wednesday April 26, 2023; 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET. The meeting link will be posted on NSPIRES.
Proposals are due June 30.
