NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, selected the Aerospace Corp. of El Segundo, CA, for the Specialized Engineering Evaluation and Test Services contract. Under this contract, valued at $35 million over 18 months, the Aerospace Corp. will provide specialized programmatic engineering and evaluation test services in its role as a federally funded research and development center of the U.S. Air Force. Aerospace Corp. will support activities related to project management, systems, and discipline engineering as well as business and resource management at Goddard. The contractor will provide on- and off-site project and multidisciplinary engineering services, independent testing, contractor on-site monitoring, and independent evaluation of projects and programs.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
Recently NASA researchers were officially cleared to begin formal feasibility studies on advanced Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) concepts under NASA’s Convergent Aeronautics Solutions (CAS) project. The investigations, three in total, are expected to take between 24 and 30 months to complete.
