John Taylor Named Chief of Exploration Systems Division at Glenn
John D. Taylor has been named chief of the Exploration Systems Division in the Programs and Projects Directorate at NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland. The Exploration Systems Division -- a group of 130 project management, project integration and support personnel -- leads the implementation of Glenn's efforts under NASA's Exploration Systems Mission Directorate.

Taylor replaces Jack Salzman who retired at the end of December 2004.

Taylor will oversee the work of several project offices including Constellation Systems, Exploration Systems Research and Technology, Human Health and Performance Systems, Life Support and Habitation, Nuclear Technology and Demonstration, and Mission Operations and Integration. These projects address national exploration priorities through research, technology development and systems development capabilities for space exploration.

"Mr. Taylor will play a key role in placing Glenn's exploration systems projects on a critical path for realizing the vision for space exploration," said Glenn Director of Programs and Projects, Dr. Arun Sehra.

Taylor has been at Glenn for 22 years. Prior to his current assignment, he served as chief of the Engineering Development Division for three years. In that capacity, he was responsible for managing the in-house development engineering and manufacturing performed at Glenn in support of the center's aeronautics and space projects, including Microgravity, International Space Station, Space Transportation, and Vehicle Systems.
