Metrology and Calibration Working Group

The Metrology and Calibration Working Group (MCWG) was established in accordance with the provisions of NPD 8730.1, Metrology and Calibration, to provide a forum to promote agency-wide standardization and cooperative action on problems of management, coordination and operation of NASA center Metrology and Calibration programs. The MCWG is comprised of representatives from each of the NASA centers.

Calibration Capabilities Database

The NASA Calibration Capabilities Database assists users of Measuring and Test Equipment in identifying and assessing calibration capabilities that exist across NASA. The database lists the full spectrum of calibration capabilities available at each of the NASA centers and component facilities.

The capabilities are searchable by location (center/facility), by 11 general measurement disciplines (Dimensional, Electrical, etc.) and by 70 specific subdisciplines (Length, Flatness, DC Voltage, AC Voltage, etc.). 

Points of Contact (PoCs) are listed for each location included in the database as well. Contact these PoCs for further information on available calibration capabilities or to arrange calibration services.
