NASA’s Johnson Space Center selected Raytheon Technical Services Co. LLC (RTSC) to assist in implementing a new training model for flight controllers and instructors. The contract expands the scope of RTSC’s training support solutions with NASA to front-end training design, giving the company an opportunity to positively influence the way NASA trains flight controllers and instructors for space vehicle knowledge operations. The Johnson Space Center’s initiative involves implementing a new training model for personnel entering as operator flight controllers and who ultimately progress to flight expedition instructors. It will shorten the training process, combining like discipline flight controller and instructor certification flows, while increasing the chances of individual success with a unified process.
