Mission of the Electrical Engineer Division Provide expert leadership in the design, development, and testing of flight electrical/electronic systems and associated technologies for GSFC and NASA missions. Electronics developed by 560 engineers are in orbit around the Earth, the Moon, and planets providing valuable data leading to exciting scientific discoveries and helping to pave the way for human exploration of our solar system. The types of missions supported include airborne, balloon, sounding rocket, and space fight. NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Electrical Engineering Division
