Stardust Honored with 2006 Aviation Week and Space Technology Program Excellence Award
NASA's Stardust Mission and Lockheed Martin's ATLAS Launch Vehicle have been honored with the Aviation Week and Space Technology (AW&ST) Program Excellence Award on November 14, 2006. AW&ST had reviewed over 300 federal programs before selecting the two finalists for the award.
Aviation Week and Space Technology invited industry partners to participate in a one-day workshop in Scottsdale, Arizona which focused on specific best practices from program leaders in managing technological complexity, managing and mitigating risk, and developing organizational capability and controls. From a free-market approach to technology resource allocation to renewing people skills as a program matures, these leaders are developing one-of-a-kind approaches that produce one-of-a-kind results and leadership.
