NASA: The Dryden Flight Research Center

The Dryden Flight Research Center began in "the pioneering days after World War II, when a small, intensely dedicated band of pilots, engineers, and technicians dared to challenge the 'sound barrier' in the X-1." Their research projects now include the Active Aeroelastic Wing (AAW) project as well as numerous other projects exploring high-altitude aircraft, solar-powered aircrafts, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology, and much more. Each project is described on a project page, which, in most cases, also includes a fact sheet, photos or movies. At the bottom of the Research page, visitors can find The Dryden Technical Reports Server, which includes numerous abstracts, citations and full text Technical Reports written by Dryden engineers. The Education section offers links to resources and programs for educators and students ranging from K-12 to postdoctoral levels. History buffs will also find a wealth of information on flight research, including biographies, speeches, publications, general information about Dryden's aircraft history and a presentation that "explores the drawings, concepts, inventions, successes and failures of the early pioneers of flight research from Leonardo da Vinci to the Wright brothers."
