  1. A Look At The Transonic Truss-Braced Wing Aircraft By Boeing; NASA
    NASA has chosen Boeing to lead the development of The Transonic Truss-Braced Wing (TTBW). This will also be a full-scale demonstrator as the aviation industry is currently on a drive to decarbonize itself by 2025. In fact, this new collaboration suggests that the Transonic Truss-Braced Wing could be flying by as early as 2028. Although we are now seeing the design for this aircraft, the program has been under development for more than a decade under the Sustainable Flight Demonstrator (SFD) program.
  2. "The SFD program has the potential to make a major contribution toward a sustainable future," says Greg Hyslop, Boeing chief engineer and executive vice president of engineering, test and technology. "It represents an opportunity to design, build and fly a full-scale experimental plane, while solving novel technical problems." The aircraft will be designed as a single-aisle jet and with all the coming advancements in systems architecture, component materiality and propulsion technology, this Truss-Braced Wing configuration could cut emissions and fuel burn by 30%. The project is cost effective to develop because it is a shared partnership between NASA and Boeing.
