    Abstract

    The recent increase in focus on climate change in the US, brought on by the results of the November 2008 elections; along with the economic stimulus package passed in the winter of 2009 illuminated the need for a capability to rapidly assess the gap between the policies being proffered and the technology portfolios currently under development in various research & development establishments. This paper demonstrates one such capability, developed for NASA's Subsonic Fixed Wing Project, as a means of rapidly looking at what technology combinations might help close the gap between the current trends and different proposed policies. It makes use of a rapid technology modeling process and parts of the US FAA's environmental analysis tool suite. The process is demonstrated using a set of different technology "futures" ranging from "frozen", to including a range of systems proposed by NASA and compares them to different policy goals.
