The overall objective of the program is to identify and evaluate candidate technologies for C-130 drag reduction. Specifically, micro-device technologies that can provide substantial drag and fuel savings, while having no impact on aircraft operations, will be evaluated. These technologies will be developed/refined through computational analysis and demonstrated with flight testing. A fuel savings assessment will predict the impact on C-130 aircraft and fleet fuel usage and costs. The period of performance for the technical effort is twelve months from go-head with an additional three months for review and submission of the final report.
