This week we broke ground on the new Flight Dynamics Research Facility (FDRF) at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. The FDRF will support research for entry, descent, and landing on planetary bodies, including the moon, Mars, and Saturn’s moon Titan. The new facility will house a vertical wind tunnel more than 120 feet tall. This is NASA’s first wind tunnel built in over 40 years and replaces the historic 12-foot Low-Speed Tunnel and the Vertical Spin Tunnel.
We are honored to be a part of this significant project for NASA!
