Upon his return to Kennedy, he led efforts to develop systems requirements for Constellation's ground system. In 2007, Wilson transferred to the Johnson Space Center where he was manager of production operations for NASA's Orion Program, overseeing the manufacturing and production of the Crew Exploration Vehicle.
