Langley and Research Center Partnership

LangleyNASA Langley Research Center is partnering with an advanced manufacturing research center in Prince George County. Officials say NASA Langley has joined the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing as a government member. The move will create opportunities for joint participation in research and development of new surface engineering technologies and manufacturing systems. Work will take place at the 60,000-square-foot facility completed last September and at the NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton. The Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing is a public-private partnership between dozens of industry partners and the University of Virginia, Virginia State University and Virginia Tech. The consortium supporting the center’s research includes Rolls-Royce, Newport News Shipbuilding and Siemens.
