Vantage Employees Receive NASA Silver Snoopy Award

The NASA Silver Snoopy Award is a special honor awarded to NASA employees and contractors for outstanding achievements related to human flight safety or mission success. The award is given personally by NASA astronauts as it represents the astronauts' own recognition of excellence. Vantage employees William Maul and Paul McMasters were recipients of the award for 2018.

William Maul received the Award for supporting the development of cutting-edge systems health management technologies for launch vehicle systems and subsystems as an onsite contractor at NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC).  Mr. Maul is a highly regarded subject matter expert in the development of Functional Fault Models (FFMs) and is applying his FMM expertise as the technical lead for development of the Integrated Vehicle Failure Model (IVFM), an FFM for the Space Launch System (SLS).  He leads a cross-Agency team responsible for developing the IVFM and using it to analyze the design of SLS mission and fault management capabilities.

Paul McMasters received the Award for providing significant project impact and excellent scheduling leadership in many International Space Station (ISS) research projects over the years.  In his support of the ISS Research Project, he has created the facility utilization schedules that are used to plan ISS operations in the Combustion Integrated Rack (CIR) and the Fluids Integrated Rack (FIR).  He maintains project schedules for up to 10 different projects and provides the roll up to NASA Headquarters.  His outstanding insight helps lower the project’s schedule risks and allows time-saving options to be presented to the project’s management.
