TFAWS 2014 Host Center
The NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio was founded in 1941 by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) as the Aircraft Engine Research Laboratory. After several name changes, the center was renamed the NASA John H. Glenn Research Center in 1999, in honor of Ohio Astronaut and Senator John H. Glenn.
Located adjacent to the Cleveland Hopkins Airport, Glenn’s main campus, Lewis Field, is located on 350 acres of land and is home to world-class test facilities, including wind tunnels, drop towers, vacuum chambers, and a hangar for experimental aircraft. Plum Brook Station is located 50 miles away from Lewis Field in Sandusky, Ohio, with 6,400 acres of land. Plum Brook Station hosts large-scale, unique facilities that can simulate space environments on a grand scale.
With over 3,400 employees, NASA Glenn Research Center provides consistent excellence in aeronautics and spaceflight in support of NASA’s missions and developing technologies.
