NAS Community Involvement
NAS Community Commitment Plan
NAS is committed to partnering with the Air Force and the workforce at Arnold Engineering Development Complex to drive the change necessary to ensure the long-term viability of the Complex while ensuring mission success: no impact to customers, no loss in data quality, and no reduction in productive test time – ultimately securing AEDC’s long-term future and world-class superiority in aerospace and flight testing.
NAS also recognizes that its relationship with the communities that surround AEDC facilities in Tennessee, Maryland, and California is vital for mission success and also part of a “win-win” equation in which the complex and the communities can prosper together through collaboration, communication, and investment in mutual interests.
To demonstrate our commitment, NAS leadership is engaged in organizations, committees, and initiatives that support the NAS mission and help move the communities forward. NAS provides annual allocations from its performance fee for community investments. NAS is committed to developing strong, mutually beneficial working relationships with community leaders around the AEDC region by designating representatives to be a part of key community organizations.
NAS engages with the local communities where we live and work in Southern Middle Tennessee, Maryland, and California, contributing to the overall well-being in focused areas, including:
NAS supports efforts that educate and train the next generations of workers through partnerships with universities, technical schools, and K-12 to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) activities, and through encouragement of post-secondary technical training for high school graduates.
The United Way
NAS supports The United Way of Highway 55 in Southern Middle Tennessee, The United Way Bay Area in California, and The United Way of the National Capital Area in Maryland, as an officially endorsed NAS-sponsored charity. Each year since 2016, NAS contributes a corporate donation with the annual employee payroll deduction campaign. NAS is the top contributor to the United Way of Highway 55 since 2019, donating more than $150,000 cumulatively.
NAS may elect to support select local community events which are free and open to everyone. This enhances our relationship with our surrounding communities by prospering over shared interests.
NAS Supporting STEM
National Aerospace Solutions, LLC (NAS) presented donation checks at Coffee County Central High School and Tullahoma High School to support their STEM programs. Funds will go toward purchasing robotic kits and rocket launcher kits, upgrading the STEM Lab, and a special sponsorship of the THS team participating in the SkillsUSA Competition. NAS is proud to help support the robust STEM programs that are molding the engineers of tomorrow, and who will hopefully one day join our NAS Team.
AEDC has a long history of employee volunteerism and generous giving. NAS encourages employees to continue their involvement through both company-sponsored and company-supported initiatives. NAS is prohibited from seeking taxpayer funding for such activities. Employees participate during off hours or use Paid Time Off, Leave Without Pay, Comp or Flex Time to take part in activities.
NAS is committed to being an active partner in the communities surrounding Arnold Engineering Development Complex.
All requests for donations or volunteers should be made via the NAS Donation Request Form. Requests should be reviewed prior to submittal to ensure they align with the NAS Initiatives listed above.
