The NASA Electric Aircraft Testbed (NEAT) is a NASA reconfigurable testbed used to design, develop, assemble and test electric aircraft power systems, from a small, one or two person aircraft up to 20 MW (27,000 hp) airliners. NASA research agreements (NRA) are granted to develop electric-propulsion components.
