Friday Technical Tour
NASA Langley Research Center
November 9, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
NASA Langley Research Center is comprised of nearly 200 facilities on 764 acres in Hampton, Virginia, and employs about 3,400 civil servants and contractors. Langley works to make revolutionary improvements to aviation, expand understanding of Earth’s atmosphere and develop technology for space exploration. Established more than 100 years ago in 1917, NASA Langley researchers carry on the legacy of their pioneering predecessors. Whether its testing airbags for space capsule landings, developing technologies to allow aircraft to fly at supersonic and hypersonic speeds or studying Earth’s atmosphere to better understand global climate change NASA Langley remains on the leading edge.
On this tour, we will visit a variety of test facilities include anechoic chambers such as the versatile Experimental Test Range (ETR), a wind tunnel, Air Traffic Operations Lab (ATOL), High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF) Lab, and the City Environment for Range Testing of Autonomous Integrated Navigation (CERTAIN), and more.
