NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA solicits inquiries from companies interested in obtaining license rights to commercialize, manufacture and market the following technology. License rights may be issued on an exclusive or nonexclusive basis and may include specific fields of use.


Scientists at NASA Langley Research Center have developed have developed a landing gear cavity modification that reduces noise produced during aircraft approach and landing. The modification is an innovative stretchable mesh assembly that deploys and retracts with the landing gear to reduce high intensity low- to mid-frequency airframe noise. The envisioned low profile mesh concept enables mitigation of cavity noise without sealing of the cavity or incurring appreciable penalties of increased weight and conforms easily and smoothly to the interior edges of an aircraft wheel well. The concept is potentially suitable for retrofit of current aircraft and for inclusion into future civil transport fleets, and causes no adverse effects to the aerodynamic characteristics of the aircraft. The technology has been validated in wind tunnel testing.

To express interest in this opportunity, please respond to with the title of this Technology Transfer Opportunity as listed in this FBO notice and your preferred contact information. Please also provide the nature of your interest in the technology along with a brief background of your company. For more information about licensing other NASA-developed technologies, please visit the NASA Technology Transfer Portal at .

These responses are provided to members of NASA Langley’s Office of Strategic Analysis and Business Development (OSACB) for the purpose of promoting public awareness of NASA-developed technology products, and conducting preliminary market research to determine public interest in and potential for future licensing opportunities. If direct licensing interest results from this posting, OSACB will follow the required formal licensing process of posting in the Federal Register. No follow-on procurement is expected to result from responses to this Notice.
