Top: NASA Lewis has been responsible for developing the propulsion technologies required for a next-generation supersonic commercial transport, or High-Speed Civil Transport (HSCT). NASA personnel have made significant contributions to propulsion component and high-temperature engine materials technologies that will not only contribute to future HSCT aircraft and engine designs but will be utilized in a wide variety of other government and industry programs, both aerospace and nonaerospace.
Bottom: The agreement between Lewis and America True calls for detailed analysis of different sail and mast designs.
