The Space Race - the down-to-earth Engineering that keeps NASA aiming for the stars.

Technical Lecture for the Institution of Mechanical Engineers - West Cumbria Area 

All our Visits and Lectures Qualify for Continued Professional Developement Points 

This  presentation will give a high-level overview of the multi-year journey, undertaken in partnership between Jacobs and NASA, at the Langley Research  Centre in Hampton, VA, NASA’s oldest research Centre’s. Creating a very high  performing, proactive, cost saving and award-winning, Asset Management program for  Langley’s key infrastructure and high tech facilities, including bespoke  aeronautical testing facilities for the likes of SpaceX.

This  includes high and low voltage electrical systems, potable and waste water  systems, high and low pressure air and steam systems, HVAC, etc. Jacobs  also provided all maintenance on some very high tech, one of a kind in the world,  wind tunnels that covered the speed regime from very low speed to Mach 10+.

Langley  is the oldest of NASA’s research Centres and in particular is focused on the  aeronautical sciences – thus the wide variety of wind tunnels at the site. Jacobs  tested everything in the tunnels from new commercial transport aircraft programs, military aircraft, missiles, and of course spacecraft (including  testing for commercial space companies like SpaceX and Sierra Nevada).
