Description

Stennis Space Center (SSC) is NASA's primary center for Rocket Propulsion Testing and home to the Applied Research and Technology Project Office. It is a multi-agency center with more than 30 resident agencies. NASA's Stennis Space Center is America's largest rocket test complex and its state-of-the-art facilities include the A, B and E Test Complexes, designed for rocket propulsion testing that ranges from component to engine to stage level. The unique waterway system and 125,000-acre acoustical buffer zone that surrounds Stennis Space Center are considered national assets, and enable testing of large-scale rocket engines and components.

Mission

SSC's principal mission for NASA is to support the development and acceptance testing of large propulsion systems for the following programs:
  • Space Shuttle,
  • Advanced Solid Rocket Motor, and
  • National Aerospace Plane High Temperature Materials Tests.

Prior to launch, every shuttle main engine requires acceptance testing at SSC. During these tests, the engines are hot fired for various periods of time under different operating conditions to determine their flight worthiness.

Funding

The Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research,or EPSCoR,establishes partnerships with government, higher education and industry that are designed to effect lasting improvements in a state's or region's research infrastructure, R&D capacity and hence, its national R&D competitiveness.

The EPSCoR program is directed at those jurisdictions that have not in the past participated equably in competitive aerospace and aerospace-related research activities. Twenty-four states, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam currently participate.Fivefederal agencies conduct EPSCoR programs, including NASA.

The goal of EPSCoR is to provide seed funding that will enable jurisdictions to develop an academic research enterprise directed toward long-term, self-sustaining, nationally-competitive capabilities in aerospace and aerospace-related research.
