NASA said the agreement expands the dialogue beyond the test and evaluation communities to include industry, academia and the science and technology interests from both agencies.

Aeronautical test facilities are used for testing vehicles, such as aircraft, missiles or space vehicles, or for related scientific and engineering studies. They include wind tunnels, propulsion test facilities, simulation facilities and open-air ranges.

NASA said the agreement also establishes a council responsible for developing projects that streamline and economize the management of aeronautical test facilities.
