Advanced Composite Consortium (ACC)

Advanced Composite Consortium (ACC)

As the Integrator, National Institute of Aerospace manages the administration of NASA’s Advanced Composite Consortium (ACC) a public-private partnership with five organizations to advance knowledge about composite materials and improve the performance of future aircraft. NIA manages communications within the consortium and the programmatic and financial aspects of members’ research projects. NASA formed the consortium in support of the Advanced Composites Project, which is part of the Advanced Air Vehicles Program in the agency’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate. The project’s goal is to reduce product development and certification timelines by 30 percent for composites infused into aeronautics applications.

The consortium includes NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration, Aurora Flight Sciences, The Boeing Company, Collier Research, General Electric Aviation, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, Orbital ATK, University of South Carolina, McNair Center, United Technologies Corporation, Wichita State University and the National Institute of Aerospace.
