The Aeronautics Research and Technology Roundtable (ARTR)

Statement of Task

The Aeronautics Research and Technology Roundtable (ARTR) convenes senior-most representatives from industry, universities and NASA to define and explore critical issues related to NASA’s aeronautics research agenda that are of shared interest; to frame systems-level research issues; and to explore options for public-private partnerships that could support rapid, high-confidence knowledge transfer. This forum will be designed to facilitate candid dialogue among participants, to foster greater partnership among the NASA-related aeronautics community, and, where appropriate, carry awareness of consequences to the wider public.
