Meteoroid Environment Office
The NASA Meteoroid Environment Office (MEO) is the NASA organization responsible for meteoroid environments pertaining to Spacecraft engineering and operations. The MEO leads NASA technical work on the meteoroid environment and coordinates the existing meteoroid expertise at NASA centers.
The NASA Meteoroid Environment Office (MEO) was established by the NASA Headquarters Office of Safety and Mission Assurance (OSMA) in October of 2004 as the NASA organization responsible for meteoroid environments pertaining to spacecraft engineering and operations.
Its creation is the result of various NASA panel recommendations and recent Leonid meteor storms.
The MEO is located at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Organizationally, it is part of the Natural Environments Branch (EV44) – a component of the Space & Vehicle Systems Department of the Engineering Directorate. The MEO is the first official NASA meteoroid program since the Johnson Space Center meteoroid group was disbanded in 1970.
