HAMPTON, Va. (AP) -- NASA and the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing are forming a partnership to advance technology and innovation.
NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton says it will be the first government member of the applied research center. That center is based in Prince George County and provides advanced manufacturing solutions to member companies, which guide research while collaborating with Virginia universities.
NASA says its scientists will conduct research and development at the center. NASA will also provide liaisons to the center's industrial operations board and technical advisory council.
