New Strategic Vision for Aeronautics Research

NASA Announces New Strategic Vision for Aeronautics Research [Watch], NASA

"Nearly every aircraft flying and air traffic management system now in use includes NASA-supported technologies that improve efficiency and safety," said Bolden. "This new vision will expand on that by fully integrating into aviation advances in other industries and parts of the economy to meet the future demands for global mobility in ways we can only begin to imagine today."

The new strategic vision greatly expands the relevancy of NASA's research and is based on three themes: understanding emerging global trends, using those trends to drive research directions and then organizing NASA's aeronautical research work in response to those drivers.

Marc's note: It appears few media outlets deemed it necessary to cover this announcement. Other than publishing the press release there's scant coverage of it.
