California, Maryland Universities Nab Aeronautics Grants

Three universities in California and Maryland have received grants as part of the NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate Fundamental Aeronautics Program. The program is designed to foster collaboration between industry, education, and NASA itself to benefit the aeronautics community.

University of California, Santa Cruz received a $200,000 grant for its proposal, Unified Computational Platform for CFD and CSD for
Rotorcraft Aeromechanics. University of California, Davis received $60,000 for its proposal, Development and Validation of Multi-Axis Pilot Models
for Rotorcraft With Time-Varying Dynamics and Biodynamic Interface.

The University of Maryland in College Park, MD, received grants for two proposals as part of the program, $446,000 for Innovative Parallel Framework for Coupling Advanced Rotorcraft Aeromechanic Simulations and $173,000 for Control-Oriented Modeling of Free Vortex Wakes.

The Fundamental Aeronautics Program focuses on research to improve the performance of atmospheric vehicles; improvements in safety and accuracy of space vehicles reentering the atmosphere; and advancing technologies in the areas of noise, emissions, and fuel consumption.
