Strategic Plan

A guide for NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California, as we enter our second century and will set us on the path to continue as the nation’s premier site for aeronautical research.

The 2024 Armstrong Strategic Plan is the result of a year-long process that brought together diverse participants and organizations from around Armstrong and sets the course for the future at the center. The strategic planning committee conducted dozens of meetings, heard input from hundreds of stakeholders, and created a document that will serve as the roadmap for the center’s future. The strategic plan is broad and deep in its goals and initiatives, and will take Armstrong to the next level.

NASA produces the agency-wide strategic plan every four years — in accordance with the Government Performance and Results Act Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRAMA) — to outline the agency’s vision for the future and to provide a clear, unified, and long-term direction for NASA’s activities. The current agency strategic plan was released in 2022.
