In a move designed to align the agency with the new exploration agenda outlined yesterday by President George W. Bush, NASA Deputy Administrator Frederick D. Gregory today announced a comprehensive restructuring of the offices within Headquarters in Washington.

The Office of Exploration Systems is established to set priorities and direct the identification, development, and validation of exploration systems and related technologies, including the new Crew Exploration Vehicle.

The new Office of Aeronautics was created to reflect NASA's commitment to aviation research and aeronautics technologies for the nation's civil and defense interests. It retains the existing Code R designation and the Enterprise responsibilities for aerospace research and technology development.
