National Aero-Space Plane technology development overview
Author and Affiliation:
Wright, Howard T.(NASA Washington, DC, USAF, National Aerospace Plane Joint Program Office, Wright-Patterson AFB)
Abstract: The paper discusses the management structure and organization that was developed in early 1986 to focus the national technology resource pool on the enabling technologies for the NASP. The NASP program is developing technologies in parallel with total system studies that are aimed at single stage to orbit (SSTO) capability. In order to manage the technology development seven teams were established by discipline and charged with the task of recommending specific programs to be funded by the NASP Joint Program Office (JPO). The teams were staffed by representatives from NASA Research Centers, Johns Hopkins University, and the Air Force Laboratories at Wright-Patterson AFB. In addition several special teams were established to recommend development programs for specific areas of technical concern that became apparent when the total system studies identified the technology to be critical and sensitive in the analysis that would enable a single stage to orbit vehicle.
