association news CHESAPEAKE BAY EXPLORES NASA’S ORION PROGRAM The speaker for the January Chesapeake Bay Roost monthly luncheon was Dr. Paul Mahata, the president of University Consultants. He spoke on the subject of “Risk Profile for NASA’s Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV), aka Orion.” On January 14, 2004, the President of the United States of America announced a new vision for the civil space program based upon exploration of the moon. Following that, the President’s Commission on Implementation of a US Space Exploration Policy released a report addressing a “Journey to Inspire, Innovate and Discover.” Dr. Mahata presented a review of the process used to develop the risk profile for the Crew Exploration Vehicle – NASA’s replacement for the Space Shuttle, with the capability to travel beyond the low-Earth orbit and the moon. Since many major systems must interact effectively for a successful launch and exploration, the CEV is considered a system of systems (SOS) by NASA. The Chesapeake Bay luncheons are held the third Thursday of every month from September to May in the Pioneer Hall of the National Electronic Museum in Linthicum, MD (near BWI airport).
