NASA Names Exploration Project Directors

NASA selected Garry M. Lyles as Deputy Director of Project Constellation and Charles J. Precourt as Program Director of the Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV).

"I am very excited about the addition of these two excellent managers to the Office of Exploration Systems' team," said Craig Steidle, Associate Administrator for the Office of Exploration Systems. "Their experience and skills will be critical as we begin developing plans for extending human presence to the moon by 2015," he added.

As the Deputy Director of Project Constellation, Lyles is responsible for the development of all exploration transportation and support systems needed to achieve the Vision for Space Exploration. That includes returning to the moon and then on to Mars.

Lyles was the manager of NASA's Next Generation Launch Technology program at the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC), Huntsville, Ala. He was responsible for leading efforts to develop technologies for safe access to space.
