National Aeronautics and Space Administration Key Developments

Evident Technologies Uses NASA-Developed Technology to Launch New Line of Commercial Products

Evident Technologies announced that it will use NASA-developed technology to launch a new line of commercial products. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, has licensed patents on high-temperature thermoelectric materials to the Troy. Thermoelectric materials convert heat into electricity. They can be used to increase efficiency and deliver low-cost solutions for harvesting waste heat. Space missions that leave Earth's orbit often use thermoelectrics as their electrical power source. NASA's Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft use thermoelectric power systems to travel away from the sun, as well as the Mars Curiosity rover. The company plans to launch new products using the technology within the next three months.

PrecisionHawk Joins NASA Collaboration to Develop Tools for UAS Traffic Management System for Low-Altitude Drone Operations

PrecisionHawk announced that they will join the NASA collaboration to build a traffic management system for drones. PrecisionHawk and NASA, along with their other partners, will work together to test, on a broader scale, a wide range of UAVs in real-world scenarios. As NASA continues to develop a workable UTM, LATAS will have the potential to serve as the hardware addition for each drone attached to that overarching system. LATAS is small (3x2x1in), light (100G) and operational on networks speeds as low as 2G.

Boeing Collaboration to Reduce Fuel Use, Carbon Emissions

Boeing announced that it has begun several months of flights with its ecoDemonstrator 757 to evaluate new technologies to improve commercial aviation's efficiency, reduce noise and carbon emissions. The company is collaborating with TUI Group and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on the tests. Tests continue ecoDemonstrator program's multi-year effort to accelerate testing, refinement and use of new technologies and methods that can improve aviation's environmental performance. Boeing is under contract with NASA's Environmentally Responsible Aviation (ERA) Project to test two technologies on the ecoDemonstrator 757. TUI Group, an integrated tourism group, is collaborating with Boeing as a way to reduce carbon emissions. The Europe-based company, which includes six airlines, is preparing for a low-carbon future by reducing its environmental impact and encouraging its suppliers and customers to do the same. With the exception of Boeing proprietary technology, NASA knowledge gained in collaboration with Boeing from ecoDemonstrator research will be publicly available to benefit the industry.
