DCOTSS Foreign National Escorting

Foreign Nationals need to be escorted when present in or at NASA facilities. This include the Palmdale Aircraft Operations Facility (B703) and any NASA aircraft, wherever the aircraft is located. Anyone with a hard NASA PIV badge can serve as escort and anyone with a NOAA/military CAC card can serve as escort. The two documents below describe the processes you must follow to become a credentialed escort for the DCOTSS project. Once you are approved, your credential is good for one year. It can be renewed by repeating the process.

This requirement for an escort does not apply to permanent residents (those with green cards).

NASA employees and NASA contractors with PIV badges follow this procedure.

NOAA employees and/or contractors with CAC cards follow this procedure.
