One of my first tasks with NextGen Aeronautics was in support of the MFX-1 morphing aircraft program. A follow on to the N-MAS (NextGen Morphing Aircraft Structures) effort, the aircraft demonstrated stable flight with a single degree of freedom (sweep and chord moved together) stretching wing. Powered by a single Jet-Cat engine, it flew successfully several times proving NextGen’s morphing concept. The research program was sponsored by DARPA and overseen by AFRL.
