Trilion Quality Systems is proud to announce that Vice President, Tim Schmidt, has been awarded the Silver Snoopy! This award, presented by Astronaut Mike Foreman and NASA Glenn Center Director Ray Lugo, was given in recognition of Tim’s leadership of the Space Shuttle External Tank Photogrammetry Effort. This program was part of the Return To Space initiative that safely and successfully launched the STS-133 on February 24, 2010.
Tim’s contributions to establishing system test requirements, defining test hardware design, and providing guidance on calibration and installation of the test equipment at the launch pad was invaluable.
Tim’s personal contribution to the success of this effort was second to none. His professional commitment went far above and beyond the normal call of duty and his extensive technical knowledge of photogrammetric systems made him a critical member of the photogrammetry team.
The photorammetry imaging team is in unanimous agreement that successful acquisition and interpretation of critical, valid displacement data from the ET-137 tanking test would not have been possible without Tim’s participation in the effort. Tim is, without question, most worthy of receiving NASA’s Silver Snoopy Award.
