The City of Hampton, VA, US is emphasizing its site selection advantages, including strategic location, progressive business environment, well-developed transportation infrastructure, strong education system and access to a highly-skilled work force. Located at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, Hampton is home to several technology assets that are said to create synergy and opportunity for large and small businesses. These include NASA Langley, Hampton University’s Proton Therapy Institute, the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA) as well as the NIA Research and Innovation Laboratories. NIA conducts a broad range of scientific and engineering research sponsored by NASA, other government agencies and the aerospace industry. NIA serves as the integrator for the Advanced Composites Consortium (ACC). The ACC is a public-private partnership of NASA, FAA and industry to advance knowledge about composite materials and reduce product development and certification timelines for composites into aeronautic applications. Included in the consortium are NASA’s Advanced Composites Project, managed from the Agency’s Langley Research Center in Hampton; the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA); General Electric Aviation; Lockheed Martin Aeronautics; Boeing Research & Technology; Pratt & Whitney; and the National Institute of Aerospace.
