NASA Autonomous Aircraft Designed for High-Altitude Extended Flight

The autonomous airplane can be folded in a confined volume, transported, and deployed in terrestrial or extraterrestrial venues. NASA Langley Research Center researchers have developed an airplane capable of being stowed in a confined volume and deployed in a high-altitude environment for extended-duration flight operations in a low-density atmosphere. Engineers, scientists, and end users can
