Software Technologies

    Many of the technologies developed by NASA include a software component, which can often have broad applications beyond the space program. Recent innovations at Dryden include software applications that impact flight safety, security monitoring, and human health.

    New software developed at Dryden that will be made available to others goes through the Software Release Process.

  • Method for Increasing Flight Duration and Speed in UAVs

    This guidance and control method allows unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to detect and exploit buoyant plumes of air called thermals. Detecting and soaring in thermals enables UAVs to optimize flight performance, increase speed, extend flight duration and range, and reduce energy consumption.
