2000 NASA Conferences a Success

NASA Presents Goldin-Stokes Awards to TRW & Wyle Laboratories for Mentoring Small Businesses Committed to NASA Technology Achievement

Washington D.C. NASA's Mentor-Protégé program of large businesses mentoring small businesses committed to NASA technology achievement is working. Ralph C. Thomas III, Associate Administrator, National Aeronautics Space Administration, recently announced in Providence, Rhode Island, the Goldin-Stokes Awardees' achievements of TRW, Inc. and Wyle Laboratories to help small businesses in the aerospace business grow and prosper.

TRW, Inc. and Dynacs, Inc.
TRW Aerospace & Information Systems in Redondo Beach, California, is mentoring Dynacs, Inc., a high technology research and engineering service company supporting the U.S. government and the private sector. Dynacs Inc. of Palm Harbor, Florida, assisted by TRW's mentoring since 1994, has grown from near-start-up status with 30 employees and $3 million in annual sales to more than 700 employees and more than $70 million in sales. Dynacs, whose business is spacecraft flight operations and control, has developed its space industry acumen while acting as a subcontractor and protégé to TRW, whose space programs include building satellites for NASA's Earth Observing system for environmental monitoring.

TRW's Aerospace & Information Systems units provide products and services for spacecraft and space communications, defense systems, telecommunications, information technology, public safety systems, and complex integrated systems. TRW continues to demonstrate success in its partnerships with minority owned, women-owned and small business enterprises.

Wyle Laboratories and Enterprise Advisory Services, Inc. As part of a Mentor-Protégé relationship that began in 1997, Wyle Laboratories transitioned the operations and employees of the Nutrition and Microbiology Laboratories at Johnson Space Center to Enterprise Advisory Services Inc. (EASI).

Wyle executives and management then worked closely with EASI for several months to ensure the labs which Wyle had operated for 10 years would continue to run smoothly. EASI is now running the labs on its own and has been receiving high evaluation scores under the Wyle contract as part of the award fee process. Wyle continues to operate a series of other labs at Johnson Space Center under support and development contracts with NASA.

Wyle, with more than 1,500 employees at 13 major facilities across the nation, is a diversified high tech engineering company. The company provides life sciences and technical support services as well as aerospace and commercial test services. Wyle, which has worked on nearly every significant US space program in the past 40 years, currently operates under several long-term NASA contracts at Johnson Space Center in Houston, at Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida, and at NASA Langley at Hampton, Virginia.

NASA Business Outreach Honors TRW Aerospace & Information Systems

TRW Aerospace & Information Systems, Redondo Beach, California, was recently awarded the NASA New England Business Outreach "Commitment to Excellence Award," at the 9th Annual NASA Technology & Business Conference held in Providence, Rhode Island. Glenn W. Wright, Director, NASA Business Outreach Center, Nashua, New Hampshire, commended TRW's outstanding commitment and efforts that support small and disadvantaged business interests.

TRW Aerospace & Information Systems is a leader in the design and development of sophisticated space systems, microelectronics, and aircraft avionics for government, international and commercial markets. TRW's Aerospace & Information Systems units provide products and services for spacecraft and space communications, defense systems, telecommunications, information technology, public safety systems, and complex integrated systems.

TRW Aerospace & Information Systems has programs that build for the future of American enterprise through its relationships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities, minority institutions and high schools.

The company is committed to teaming with NASA on many space-related programs. TRW received a Commitment to Excellence Award in 1995, 1997, 1998 and 1999.

Accepting for TRW Aerospace & Information Systems was Al Boldon, Director of TRW's Small Disadvantaged Business Utilization Office. He is responsible for the identification, solicitation, and utilization of small/small disadvantaged and women-owned small businesses on TRW programs.

A co-host of the Conference, along with NASA, The Center for Technology Commercialization (CTC) is a not-for-profit corporation. The conference was coordinated by the NASA Business Outreach Program, NASA's New England Outreach Center which is managed by CTC. CTC is also the Northeast Regional Technology Transfer Center for NASA, which is one of six such NASA Centers in the United States. CTC's primary mission is to help provide nationwide access to NASA-developed technology and applications for industry commercialization.

NASA New England Outreach Center Honors Bowkett of Nu-Cast, Inc.

John Bowkett, a principal and space systems manager/sales of Nu-Cast, Inc., Londonderry, New Hampshire, accepted the NASA New England Outreach Center's "Commitment to Excellence" Award as the industry advocate of the year during an awards ceremony at the 9th Annual NASA Technology and Business Conference held recently in Providence, Rhode Island.

The "Commitment to Excellence" Award for Industry Advocate commends outstanding individual effort in support of NASA's Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization program.

Bowkett is known for his willingness to help present solutions to NASA in using the latest technologies to produce high strength castings derived from computer generated prototype patterns. Nu-Cast's capabilities include space flight hardware; rapid prototyping; engineering ; 3 D truss and concurrent manufacturing.

Nu-Cast produced two large and complex structural castings for NASA, one a grapple mount for the Spartan 207-IAE inflatable antenna experiment satellite, and the second was the outside casting structure for PAMS (Passive Aerodynamically Stabilized Magnetically Damped Satellite). Both were flown in 1996 above the Space Shuttle Endeavour STS-77.

The annual conference featured technology and procurement opportunities, discussions and networking between representatives from NASA, prime contractors, small businesses, minority owned businesses and woman-owned businesses. A co-host of the Conference, with NASA, The Center for Technology Commercialization is a not-for-profit corporation. The conference was coordinated by the NASA Business Outreach Program, NASA's New England Outreach Center which is managed by CTC.

Richardson Grating Laboratory Is Small Business Contributor to NASA Technology Achievement

Dr. Christopher Palmer, President and Chief Scientist, Richardson Grating Laboratory, Rochester, New York, accepted the NASA New England Outreach Center's "Commitment to Excellence" Award for Small Business Technology Achievement during an awards ceremony at the NASA Technology and Business Conference held recently in Providence, Rhode Island.

RGL was recognized for its technical contributions to a number of NASA space-borne astronomical and earth science projects, including the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) upgrade spectrograph and the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS), as well as for the research collaboration started last year to explore methods of evaluating grating performance characteristics.

The Richardson Grating Laboratory, a Thermo Electron company, is a world leader in the design and manufacture of ruled and holographic diffraction gratings for the telecommunications, semiconductor and spectroscopic markets, as well as for scientific and academic applications. RGL is formerly part of Milton Roy Company and originally established by Bausch and Lomb in 1947.

The annual conference featured technology and procurement opportunities, discussions and networking between representatives from NASA, prime contractors, small businesses, minority owned businesses and woman-owned businesses. A co-host of the Conference, with NASA, The Center for Technology Commercialization is a not-for-profit corporation.
