Stennis Personnel Contribute to NASA 'Roadmap' Effort
Several NASA employees at John C. Stennis Space Center were involved in the development of Space Technology Roadmap draft reports recently made available by the space agency.
Steve Taylor, deputy chief engineer in the Stennis Engineering and Test Directorate, and David Coote, chief of the Design and Analysis Division of the Stennis Engineering and Test Directorate, joined NASA Chief Technologist Bobby Braun and several dozen NASA employees from across the agency in drafting the reports that address 14 broad technology areas.
Five other NASA employees at Stennis were among about 100 agency peers who reviewed the reports to offer recommended changes prior to release. They included: Coote; Brad Messer chief of the Systems Engineering and Integration division for the Stennis Engineering and Test Directorate; Shamim Rahman, deputy director of the Stennis Engineering and Test Directorate; Bruce Spiering, an aerospace technologist with the Stennis Applied Science and Technology Office; and Ramona Travis, Stennis chief technologist.
When finalized, the reports are designed to create and maintain an overall technology road map for NASA. The draft reports may be accessed and comments offered at: http://sites.nationalacademies.org/DEPS/ASEB/DEPS_059552.
