How to request a Balance Calibration or Ames Balance Loan:
Ames Balance Calibration Lab welcomes inquiries regarding potential use of our Balances. Initial contact should be made as early as possible so that a Balance can be reserved. It is best if the intial request can be made at least one month before the desired calibration/test time.
Balance loans are typically limited to NASA facilities or to other government agencies. Potential users should contact the Ames Balance Calibration Lab so that loans properly conform to NASA policies. All loans must meet cost requirements.
All that is necessary is to fill out a Balance Calibration Request Form. After review by the Ames Balance Calibration Lab staff, a Balance Request Meeting may be scheduled for further information. Any questions can be directed to Chris Chen, Chris.H.Chen@nasa.gov or Michael Wright, Michael.F.Wright@nasa.gov.
Fill out and submit a Balance Calibration Request Form and return it to NASA Ames Balance Calibration Lab.
