Academia, the Air Force, NASA, and industry have a great contribution in the advancement of structures arena. Mississippi State University is developing a fatigue and fracture laboratory under FAA and Office of Naval Research grants to develop fatigue crack growth databases for rotorcraft and naval aircraft materials. Arizona State University has developed a multiscale numerical procedure for the response analysis of composites under high-velocity impact in collaboration with NASA Glenn. The Air Force Office of Scientific Research has awarded two DoD Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative program grants to Arizona State that will support a team to conduct basic research in the area of structural health monitoring and damage prognosis of metallic aerospace systems. In addition to this, Lockheed Martin's newly revealed Polecat unmanned aerial system demonstrator to explore the aerodynamic characteristics of the tailless flying wing design at higher altitudes.
