NASA Announces Virginia Aeronautics Research Award

January 17, 2007

Old Dominion University and the University of Virginia win awards for their work on automatic runway hazard detection and aircraft corrosion and fatigue.

WASHINGTON D.C. /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, Aviation Safety Program, Washington, has awarded approximately $165,000 to Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, for work described in their NASA research announcement proposal entitled "Smart Sensor Processing for Automatic Runway Hazard Detection."

The Aviation Safety Program also awarded approximately $143,000 to the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, for work described in their proposal entitled "First-Principles Calculations of the Structure and Energetics of Al/Water Interfaces of Relevance to Corrosion and Fatigue."

These awards will foster close collaboration with, and facilitate the exchange of ideas and information among, researchers at NASA, industry, academia, and other government agencies to benefit the nation's aeronautics community.

The Aviation Safety Program conducts cutting-edge research dedicated to improving the safety of current and future aircraft operating in the National Airspace System. The research focus is on the way vehicles are designed, built, operated, and maintained. Scientists and engineers in this program develop principles, guidelines, concepts, tools, methods, and technologies to address four areas: aircraft aging and durability, integrated intelligent flight deck technologies, integrated vehicle health management, and integrated resilient aircraft control.
