The NASA Langley Research Center has formed a partnership with the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing to research and develop new surface engineering technologies and manufacturing systems.

As a government member, NASA will work to help CCAM expedite aerospace, space exploration and satellite systems technology development, CCAM said Wednesday.

Lesa Roe, NASA Langley director, said the partnership combines the agency’s science and applications experience with CCAM’s manufacturing engineering and technology capabilities.

CCAM is a research-based private-public collaboration spearheaded by the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University.

Industry members of CCAM include Siemens, Aerojet, Newport News Shipbuilding, Cool Clean Technologies and Blaser Swisslube.
