Description

The Glenn Research Center investigates space operations, aerospace technology and technologies needed for space exploration such as power, propulsion, communications, fluids and combustion, materials, structures, mechanical components, and instrumentation and controls. Research is conducted that advances both aeronautics and space including power and energy-conversion systems; aircraft, space, and planetary communications; high temperature propulsion materials; propulsion structures; mechanisms and mechanical systems; and tribology and surface science. Research and development work related to space exploration is performed in the areas of in-space propulsion and nuclear systems; fluids combustion and reacting subsystems, including gravity dependence; systems integration and analysis; human research; and microgravity science. Aerospace technology focuses on advanced turbine engine propulsion and power systems; turbine engine noise reduction; propulsion control and engine health management; instrumentation systems; avionics; aircraft icing research; modeling and simulation; and alternative fuel systems.

Mission

The Glenn Research Center's mission is to work as a diverse team in partnership with government, industry, and academia to increase national wealth, safety, and security, protect the environment, and explore the universe. Glenn develops and transfers critical technologies that address national priorities through research, technology development, and systems development for safe and reliable aeronautics, aerospace, and space applications.

Funding

The Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research,or EPSCoR,establishes partnerships with government, higher education and industry that are designed to effect lasting improvements in a state's or region's research infrastructure, R&D capacity and hence, its national R&D competitiveness.

The EPSCoR program is directed at those jurisdictions that have not in the past participated equably in competitive aerospace and aerospace-related research activities. Twenty-four states, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam currently participate.Fivefederal agencies conduct EPSCoR programs, including NASA.

The goal of EPSCoR is to provide seed funding that will enable jurisdictions to develop an academic research enterprise directed toward long-term, self-sustaining, nationally-competitive capabilities in aerospace and aerospace-related research.
