NASA’s Unsteady Pressure-Sensitive Paint Research and Operational Capability Developments To address challenges in the field of unsteady aerodynamics, NASA has developed a new state-of-the-art capability called Unsteady Pressure-Sensitive Paint (uPSP). It has been developed as an operational surface-pressure measurement capability for deployment in NASA’s AETC ground test facilities. Offering unprecedented spatiotemporal resolution, uPSP is an extremely powerful tool for investigating unsteady separated flows. To accelerate scientific discovery, uPSP data is to be processed and distributed as rapidly as it is acquired. Several demonstrations of the technology collected valuable data that has been used to develop data products, a robust processing pipeline, and other computational capabilities. A collection of papers documents the most recent research and development work on the uPSP technology and capability. This paper summarizes the current state of this effort at NASA.
