Assessment of NASA Laboratory Capabilities

Project Scope
The National Research Council (NRC)Laboratory Assessments Board, in collaboration with the NRC Space Studies Board, will form an ad hoc committee to carry out an independent external review of NASA's laboratories, including laboratory equipment, facilities, and support services used for fundamental science and engineering research, to determine whether they are equipped and maintained at a level adequate to support NASA’s research activities. Spacecraft qualification equipment and facilities are excluded from consideration. The review will also include an assessment of the relative quality of NASA's in-house laboratory equipment and facilities compared to comparable laboratories elsewhere.
 

 

This project is sponsored by NASA.
