A technology gap exists between well-controlled wind tunnel tests and full scale flight testing where most systems integration issues surface. Allocating these system integration activities to a full scale flight test is replete with safety, schedule and performance risks that dominate flight test costs. The PTERA platform serves as the bridge to integrate and flight test advanced aerodynamic treatments, health management, and control systems, and to perform experiments in structures and aero elasticity for a fraction of the cost of a manned flight test program. The PTERA-RJM flight test facility offers several distinct advantages to NASA and non-NASA customers. The PTERA-RJM configuration, a representative 16%-scale CRJ-700 will provide significantly relevant test data for this, and similar, aircraft and enables flight tests which are typically too costly and risky to perform on full scale, manned aircraft. The PTERA-RJM will be an invaluable resource to the Aviation Safety Program by enabling experiments in vehicle health monitoring, in loss of control prevention, mitigation, and recovery, in atmospheric hazard sensing and mitigation, in crew decision making, among others. This platform will also be of significant value to support NASA's SFW, ERA, UAS in NAS programs. Area-I has received significant private sector interest in the PTERA platform as a cost reducing research and development tool. Area-I is currently developing several avenues under which to market the PTERA. Area-I plans to develop PTERA as a production aircraft to sell as a research testbed and to provide flight testing, maintenance, and engineering support to these customers. Area-I will also maintain its own fleet of PTERA aircraft to provide flight testing for a wide range of customers. Several UAV technology developers, including gimbal camera, datalink, image processing, air sensor, IMU, and flight test equipment developers have all expressed interest in flying their products on the PTERA. Additionally, several large aircraft manufactures, in connection with the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA), have discussed having Area-I maintain an exclusive fleet of PTERA configurations for communal testing of NextGen developed systems. Phase II efforts to finalize and fabricate the PTERA-RJM model will highlight the reconfigurability and versatility of the PTERA platform. This, in turn, will allow the private sector to invest funds in PTERA with lower risk to improve the safety and efficiency of aircraft in the national airspace system. The delivery of a custom, dynamically scaled testbed will provide a smooth transition to Phase III commercialization with industry partners as they realize the development time, cost, and risk reductions of testing with the PTERA platform.
