To accomplish this our team overcame many obstacles to get the job done and were the recipients of many awards and recognition for our performance. However, all recognition, including kudos and awards for the success of our efforts are shared with all who supported us in this task, for without them... it would not have been possible.
We hope you will enjoy a few things we have selected from our files for this website depicting our contributions to the Space Race to the Moon.
With the assistance of many engineering, support and administrative functions within our company, the NASA, the military, and many educational and associate contractor organizations, our guys functioned to develop a systems approach to training, enabling us to prepare and present an accelerated training program as space systems were being designed and developed. It was a TOTAL team effort !
Those honored in this site for their contributions in placing the first man on the moon now realize how fortunate we were as Americans during the decades of the nineteen sixties and seventies in living in a country undivided because of political or other differences which today, seemingly appear to be tearing away at threads that bind us as a Democracy and a nation.
Perhaps our website will stand as an example, like Neil's famous footprint on the Moon, of what we can do for our country when undivided and working together in a society to create and innovate for the benefit of our nation and all mankind.
Sadly, only three of our original participating team members are with us for the 50th anniversary. We are planning for this site to remain published with web.com as one of many Space History publications after we join the rest of our team.
Our Family Supporters
Clearly, there are sacrifices to be made in any worthwhile achievement, especially at the family level when burdens are placed on marriages while one parent may be absent for periods of time to move about the country as required to share his or her expertise with others working in the industry. Our training team members having families flew thousands of miles to different locations across country from our home base in Southern California in the process of sharing our technical knowledge.
In view of these sacrifices made by those wives or husbands who often found themselves playing both parental roles during our travels, we recognize them, along with our children, as major contributors to the success of this program .
