2013
NASA Dryden In 2013: Contributing to Aerospace Technology, Earth & Space Science (12/12): NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards, CA, helped advance the Agency’s overall mission of Earth and space science and aerospace technology research as it continued supporting NASA's four mission areas during 2013. +Read more

2010
2010 - A Year of Broad Achievement at NASA Dryden (12/12): NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards, CA, continued supporting NASA's four mission areas during 2010, advancing the Agency's overall mission of leading the nation in aerospace technology and science research.+Read more

2009
2009 - Another Year of Accomplishment at NASA Dryden (12/12): NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards, CA, continued supporting NASA's four mission areas during 2009, advancing the Agency's overall charter of leading the nation in aerospace technology.+Read more

Lancets Flights Probe Supersonic Shockwaves (01/09): NASA is concluding a series of flight tests to measure shock waves generated by an F-15 jet, in an effort to validate computer models that could be used in designing quieter supersonic aircraft.+Read more

2008
Rake Airflow Gage Experiment Flies on NASA F-15B (11/08) - NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center recently conducted a flight test of an airflow-measurement device mounted underneath its F-15B research aircraft in the Rake Airflow Gage Experiment. + Read more

2007
Sonic Boom Tests Schedules (7/07) - Experiments scheduled by NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards,CA in coming weeks will examine the structural response of modern housing construction to both normal and low-amplitude sonic booms. Called the Housing Structural Response to Sonic Booms Test, the effort is scheduled to occur at Edwards from July 11 to July 20, between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on test days. + Read more

2006
Gulfstream, NASA Dryden Joust with Supersonic Shockwaves (10/06) - Early fighter pilots were sometimes called knights of the air, a reflection of medieval times when knights used blunted lances in jousting tournaments to dismount competitors from their horses. Now, jet-borne jousting is combating supersonic shockwaves, hopefully enough to lessen the resulting sonic boom heard on the ground. + Read more

2005
Space Shuttle Return to Flight Gets a "LIFT" From NASA Dryden F-15B (2/05) - To help the Space Shuttle safely return to flight, NASA engineers are acquiring data on how insulating foam debris or "divots" behave when these small pieces are shed from the Shuttle's external fuel tank during launch. NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards, CA, is conducting a series of flight tests of the divots as part of the Return to Flight team effort. The Lifting Insulating Foam Trajectory (LIFT) flight test series at Dryden is using the center's F-15B Research Testbed aircraft to test these "divots" in a real flight environment at speeds up to about Mach 2, or twice the speed of sound. + Read more

2002
Dryden F-15B Supports F-5 Shaped Sonic Boom Demonstration (3/02) - NASA is part of a team seeking quieter sonic booms. NASA's F-15B Research Testbed aircraft recently flew in the supersonic shock wave of a U.S. Navy F-5E in support of the F-5 Shaped Sonic Boom Demonstration (SSBD) project, part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Quiet Supersonic Platform (QSP) program. + Read more

Propulsion Flight Research Capabilities Gained with New Fixture (2/02) - NASA Dryden Flight Research Center's new in-house designed Propulsion Flight Test Fixture (PFTF) is an airborne engine test facility that allows engineers to glean actual flight data on small experimental engines that would otherwise have to be gathered from traditional wind tunnels, ground test stands or laboratory setups. + Read more

2001
Flight Experiment Demonstrates Improved Test Method (5/01) - A flight experiment called the Aerostructures Test Wing (ATW) conducted at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Calif., successfully demonstrated a new software data analysis tool, the flutterometer, which is designed to increase the efficiency of flight flutter testing. + Read more
