A Veteran of Two Space Shuttle Missions and an International Space Station Mission

Science Applications International Corporation’s (SAIC) Space, Earth and Atmospheric
Sciences (SEAS) Group today announced that Frank L. Culbertson, Jr.,
USN (ret) has been named senior vice president and program manager of
the Safety, Reliability and Quality Assurance (SR&QA) contract at the
National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) Johnson Space
Center in Houston, Texas.

In this role, Culbertson will be responsible for overall
management of the SR&QA contract, drawing upon his extensive
experience in NASA human space flight operations. The SR&QA contract
provides support to the Space Shuttle and International Space Station

“Frank Culbertson’s management experience, leadership and
background in human space operations make him exceptionally qualified
in his new role at SAIC,” said Neil Hutchinson, SAIC senior vice
president and manager of the SEAS Group.

Prior to joining SAIC, Culbertson had a distinguished career as a
NASA astronaut, which includes logging more than 144 days in space on
his three space flights and more than five hours of extra-vehicular
activity (space walk) time. In 1999, Culbertson was selected to
command the third expedition to the International Space Station.

That mission was launched in August, 2001, and returned to Earth
in December, 2001. Culbertson and his two Russian crewmates lived and
worked in space for 129 days and he commanded the Space Station for
117 days.

In 1994, Culbertson was named deputy program manager of Phase 1 of
the Shuttle-Mir program, and became manager of the program the
following year.

The joint U.S.-Russian program was a precursor to the
International Space Station. During this period, Culbertson was
responsible for a multi-national team which built the flight hardware,
developed the joint procedures for seven American astronauts who
worked aboard the Mir for more than 30 months, and executed nine
Shuttle docking missions to the Russian Space Station Mir.

In 1984, Culbertson was selected as a NASA astronaut and was a
member of the NASA team that investigated the Challenger accident. His
subsequent assignments included lead spacecraft communicator in the
Mission Control Center for seven Shuttle missions. Culbertson piloted
the Atlantis on STS-38 in 1990 and was commander of STS-51 aboard
Discovery in 1993.

This mission deployed two satellites, retrieved one satellite and
conducted a seven-hour spacewalk in preparation for an upcoming Hubble
telescope repair mission. He also executed the first night landing of
a Shuttle at the Kennedy Space Center.

Culbertson is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and the U.S.
Naval Test Pilot School. His Navy career includes several carrier
deployments and tours as an instructor pilot and automatic carrier
landing test pilot. He has logged more than 6,500 hours flying time in
50 different types of aircraft and has made more than 350 carrier
landings. He retired as a U.S. Navy Captain from active military duty
in 1997.
