NASA’s Airborne Data Management Group (ADMG) exists to support NASA’s airborne and field science communities, NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), and airborne and field data users by providing access to relevant resources, information, and data. ADMG is responsible for building an inventory of past and present NASA airborne and field campaigns called the Catalog of Archived Suborbital Earth Science Investigations (CASEI) to improve the discoverability and access to airborne and field campaign data. ADMG is located within the Interagency Implementation and Advanced Concepts Team (IMPACT) and operates under the direction of NASA's Earth Science Data Systems (ESDS) Program.

Note that the NASA DAACs listed are those with which the ADMG works and does not include the Crustal Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS) and the Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
