NASA Seeks Potential Interest in Available Test Facility at Stennis Space Center

NASA at John C. Stennis Space Center has released information to identify potential industry interest in an onsite test stand facility designed for ground testing propulsion systems.
The E-4 Test Facility consists of a high-bay work area, control room space, personnel offices and concrete test cells. There is road and barge canal accessibility, as well as standard utilities. The E-4 Test Facility design also allows for growth of capabilities to meet future requirements.
"This is a great opportunity for a commercial company to explore partnership possibilities with NASA," said Stennis Engineering and Test Directorate Associate Director John Stealey. "The test facilities at Stennis are among the finest in the nation, and the federal city shared-cost concept at the site allows a company to make the best use of its resources while accomplishing its mission."
Projects conducted at the E-4 Test Facility also will have the ability to access Stennis onsite amenities and support capabilities, including cafeteria, medical clinic, laboratory, component, information technology, institutional and other services.
