NASA GLENN RESEARCH CENTER
Cleveland, Ohio
September 1998 - 2012

Plum Brook Station is a satellite of NASA's (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) Glenn Research Center situated on 6,400 acres of land, fifty-six miles west of Cleveland, near Sandusky, Ohio.

The Challenge

The Plum Brook Station (PBS) facility possesses testing capabilities unmatched anywhere else in the world. Since 1958, NASA has used PBS to test highly specialized space-bound hardware used in the Titan IV, the Mars Pathfinder Air Bag Landing System, and numerous other cutting edge technologies. PBS also had nuclear reactors dating back to 1962 that were used to support NASA's nuclear rocket and nuclear electric power supply program. In 1973, these reactors were taken out of service and NASA was given a "Possess but do not operate" license from the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). In 1998, the NRC asked that NASA fully decommission the reactor facilities. NASA submitted a comprehensive Decommissioning Plan for the reactors that will allow the property to be utilized for unrestricted use. NASA Glenn contracted with FOCUS GROUP for media and risk communication training and support and to develop and implement a comprehensive public involvement program during the highly sensitive multi-year decommissioning process.
