A Lockheed Martin concept produced as part of the Environmentally Responsible Aviation Project for future aircraft configurations. Under the wider Fundamental Aeronautics Program, some interesting engineering processes have also been studied to enable such aircraft to be produced.
Future subsonic aircraft designs could be powered with turbofan engines that incorporate technology currently under research as part of NASA's ERA project.
Three concepts produced for the Environmentally Responsible Aviation project by Boeing (left), Lockheed Martin (right) and Northrop Grumman (rear). All feature different configurations, with Boeing studying a blended wing body, Lockheed Martin a boxed wing and Northrop Grumman a flying wing.
