Welcome to the Crew Systems and Aviation Operations Branch!

The Crew Systems and Aviation Operations Branch (CSAOB), part of the Research Directorate at NASA Langley Research Center, changes the world through world-class, leading-edge research to enable safe and efficient operations of new aerospace vehicles and concepts in the National Airspace System and beyond. We pioneer new flight-deck concepts, technologies, and operational procedures in support of transformational flight, on-demand air transportation, autonomous operations, human-machine teaming, and human aspects of air and space flight.

CSAOB researchers develop innovative aerospace concepts, technologies, and procedures that are easy to understand and use by leveraging multidisciplinary expertise in:
