  • Abstract:
    In April 1978, Congress requested that the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) perform a technology assessment as whether the potential benefits of advanced super-sonic transport aircraft-or second generation supersonic transports-justify increases in the levels of Federal funding for generic research and development in supersonic cruise technology. Responding to this request, OTA proposed a broad and long-term study to examine the potential for advanced air transport technology, both passenger and cargo. The objectives of this study were to examine the economic, environmental, energy, societal, and safety impacts of advances in the technology of high-speed aircraft, commuter aircraft, and air cargo. To bring the scope of the assessment within manageable bounds, OTA focused strictly on the aircraft technologies and excluded the examination of such areas as the airport and terminal area capacity This report was the first in a series and deals solely with advanced high-speed aircraft, including both subsonic and supersonic. In conducting this assessment, OTA was assisted by an Advisory Panel and a Working Group each comprised of representatives from Government agencies, the aerospace industry, public interest groups, financial institutions, and universities. This paper is the first part in four comprizing the OTA study, "The Impact of Advanced Air Transport Technology."
