NASA Joins Va Manufacturing Research Center

DISPUTANTA, Va. (AP) -- NASA 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.
