Attachment C
Program Briefings

As part of the information-gathering effort for this study, five committee members made presentations to the committee on lessons learned from systems integration of past space and nonspace megaprograms, as follows:

  • aerospace programs from Viking to Space Station, A. Thomas Young

  • Apollo/Bellcom, Robert C. Seamans, Jr.

  • National Reconnaissance Office/COMSAT, Joseph V. Charyk

  • selected megaprojects from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Elvin R. “Vald” Heiberg III

  • selected civilian mega-projects, William C. Breen

These programs were selected because they exhibited systems integration characteristics comparable to those of Project Constellation in terms of program scope and complexity.
