Research and Development Accomplishments, FY-2007

This document describes three Research and Development (R&D) projects undertaken by the Associate Administrator for Commercial Space Transportation (AST) in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) during fiscal year 2007. Each of the three new research projects selected was assigned to an AST division to lead the research effort. In addition to a description of each project, this report provides a summary of accomplishments to date. The AST safety research supports the development of the policy, standards, and guidance material needed to meet FAA goals and objectives. Such research is also essential in developing the knowledge necessary to maintain and improve FAA/AST materials used to verify that the products and procedures of launch vehicle and site operator licensees, permitees, and applicants adequately comply with applicable safety standards.
