NASA tasked Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and The Boeing Company with studying designs for advanced concept aircrafts due for delivery in 2025.

The contract specifies all designs must meet NASA’s goals of less noise, cleaner exhaust and lower fuel consumption.

The aircraft must fly up to 85 percent of the speed of sound, cover a range of about 7,000 miles and carry between 50,000 and 100,000 pounds of payload.

Final designs will be submitted for approval by the end of the year.
