  • Abstract:
    This report covers the period October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017. The Center was established by the authority of FAA solicitation 13-C-AJFE-Solicitation. During that time the ASCENT team launched a new website, which can be viewed at ascent.aero. The next meeting will be hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, April 3-4, 2018 in Boston. Over the last year, the ASCENT team has made great strides in research, outreach, and education. The team’s success includes the following: - 43 research projects. The projects can be divided into five categories: tools, operations, noise, emissions, and alternative fuels. See the project category descriptions for more detail on each category and a summary of the projects. Funding for these projects comes from the FAA in partnership with Transport Canada. - 110 publications, reports, and presentations by the ASCENT team. Each project report includes a list of publications, reports, and presentations published between June 2015 and December 2017. A comprehensive list of the publications, reports, and presentations is available in the publications index on page 726. - 105 students participated in aviation research with the ASCENT team. Each project report includes the names and roles of the graduate and undergraduate students in the investigator’s research. Students are selected by the investigators to participate in this research. - 72 industry partners involved in ASCENT. ASCENT’s industry partners play an important role in the Center. The 72 members of the ASCENT Advisory Board provide insight into the view of stakeholders, provide advice on the activities and priorities of the Center’s co-directors, and ensure research will have practical application. The committee does not influence FAA policy. Industry partners also play a direct role in some of the research projects, providing resources and expertise to the project investigators.
