Blueprint to data

Blueprint to data showcases the NRC's capabilities in design, fabrication, and testing. Using the recent half-model test campaign of the NASA common reference model, we take you through all stages, from the initial consultation to testing in our trisonic wind tunnel to final data transfer. Contact us for all your design needs.
