  • Original Article: AeroTechNews Looking to make a plane that was able to take off and land at airports with shorter runways, in the mid-2000s NASA began experimenting with the circulation control wing concept. Using increased amounts of high-pressure air over the leading and trailing edges of the wings, supplied either by the jet engines or separate compressors, aircraft using this technology have greater lift. That enables them to take off and land at a lower speed, permitting a shorter runway. To test the innovation, Armstrong Flight Research Center put out a call in 2006 through the Small Business Innovation Research […]
