Doing Business With Ames Research Center
Ames Research Center (ARC) provides vital research and technology for the United States space program, aeronautics industry, and national security. Ames is recognized for technical excellence in life sciences, human factors and man-machine interactions, fluid dynamics and heat transfer, aerodynamics and flight dynamics, flight stability and control, and technical project management. More than 30 of the Nation's principal technological facilities reside at ARC, including the world's most sophisticated wind tunnel complex and most advanced supercomputing system. ARC represents approximately 4% of the agency budget; the single largest category of contracting opportunities involves on-site services in support of the activities identified above.
