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).
Douglas (Doug) Cook is Vice President and Head of Asset Management Support for the Aerospace, Technology and Nuclear - International (ATN-I) Business Unit of Jacobs Engineering in the United Kingdom. In this role Doug is providing technical advisory services to transform the Asset Management delivery services for the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) – a Joint Venture of which Jacobs is a shareholder company. In addition, he provides executive consulting services relative to Asset Management to various other Jacobs clients in the UK commercial and government sectors.
