GRUMMANITES RECEIVE NASA SPACE STATION AWARD

 GRUMMANITES RECEIVE NASA SPACE STATION AWARD
 HOUSTON, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Eight Grumman employees have been


presented with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Space Station Freedom Award of Merit for their outstanding work in the design of the crew restraints that were flown and tested aboard NASA's Space Shuttle Columbia in June.
 NASA Astronaut Bonnie J. Dunbar, a mission specialist on Columbia, presented the awards to Ken Booker, Gary Doerre, Harry Johnson, Howard Johnson, John Mangialardi, Mike Ross, Steve Roussel and Clint Thornton on Sept. 30.
 Dunbar congratulated the award recipients and said, "Our future success and the safety of the flight crews rest with those individuals, like you, who consistently put forth their best effort. Your professionalism and dedication in carrying out your responsibilities are exemplary and have gained you the utmost respect of your co-workers and management."
 Grumman, a subcontractor to Boeing Defense & Space Group for NASA's space station work package one, designed the restraints which allow the crew to easily perform payload and workstation activities, and to work throughout the space station module interior. The restraints provide vertical, horizontal and rotational adjustments to position crew members in the best zero-gravity working position.
