TEES researchers design supersonic transport aircraft for NASA that modifies its shape in real time

A team of Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station researchers has been selected for a potential award by NASA to lead research into commercially viable civil supersonic transport aircraft that meet noise and efficiency requirements for overland flight. Put simply, their research is on designing an aircraft that can modify its shape in real time in order to optimize for fuel efficiency or quiet flight as the flight phase and conditions change.
