Research & Development
JAXA promotes three research and development programs and a fundamental research program that underpins them.
Aeroengine Technology Demonstration
Aeroengine system is composed of many components forming a highly advanced system. Advanced component technologies developed through research projects are tested by installing in turbofan engines to step forward for the level of technological maturity adequate for practical use.
Aeroengine Technology Demonstration Using Turbofan Engines
- The ground-level enclosed jet engine test facility is in operation equipped with turbofan engines for advanced engine technologies.
- Advanced component technologies developed through projects and fundamental research are tested in ground-level environment to advance technological readiness level.
