The five-story 175,000 gross square foot Measurement Systems Laboratory supports research and development of new measurement concepts, technologies and systems that will enable NASA to achieve its missions in space exploration, science and aeronautics. Designed for flexibility and collaboration, this facility hosts 48 labs for various research and development operations including electronics, lasers, clean room operations and instrumentation. GSA delivered this LEED Gold facility for NASA and the facility opened in April 2022.
