NASA has established the Digital Engineering Design Center (DEDC) at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.
The DEDC focuses on digital engineering, which streamlines the design and development of aerospace hardware.
Digital engineering allows for the creation of virtual environments to build, test, and refine designs.
The DEDC is operated by the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) Aerospace Center.
The center provides immersive, project-based learning experiences for NASA engineers and students.
The DEDC emphasizes in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) related to lunar and Martian missions.
Collaboration between NASA engineers, students, and UTEP professors is a key aspect of the DEDC.
The digital engineering process reduces technical risk and accelerates development schedules.
The DEDC is part of a broader collaboration between Johnson's Engineering Directorate and the Space Technology Mission Directorate.
