NASA Team Award for Space Flight Awareness
On Thursday, April 15th 2021, members of the GSFC FDF Flight Operations team were presented the Team Award for Space Flight Awareness. The award was given as recognition for all of the recent work, analysis, and development of launch abort scenarios that have helped enable the recent and future crewed missions to ensure safe operations during a launch anomaly. The selection committee deemed those efforts demonstrated exemplary teamwork while accomplishing a particular task or goal in support of the human space program. Congratulations to the entire team and our Omitron team members!
Omitron Civil Space Programs appraised at CMMI Maturity Level 2
Omitron, Inc. has been appraised at Maturity Level 2 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)® for Development.
