Project Introduction

Adaptive Compliant Trailing Edge II Sub-Project

The ACTE II Sub-Project is an experimental flight research joint effort between NASA and the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory in partnership with FlexSys.  This effort aims to demonstrate fuel burn reduction, control of wing aerodynamic load distribution, and community noise reduction through the use of seamless, adaptive flap technology at relevant commercial flight conditions. The ACTE efforts began under the Environmentally Responsible Aviation Project and has continued under the Flight Demonstrations and Capabilities (FDC) Project as the ACTE II Sub-Project.
