Certificates of individual production merit awards. Stanley Crawford, 50-year old group leader in the internal inspection department at RCA Manufacturing Co., Camden, New Jersey has been awarded a Certificate of Individual Production Merit. He came to RCA in 1928 as a packer in the shipping department. He has been an inspector since 1940. Crawford suggested and designed a caliper for determining the wall thickness and relationship between a cored interior and outside surface of castings. The use of the caliper saved 13 out of 16 castings which had been rejected. It saved skilled man hours and material

Women in industry. Gas mask production. Flower in hair, Betty Gumbetter adds glamour to the assembly line of a Midwest gas mask factory which formerly made vacuum cleaners. Operating a riveting press, which attaches cloth tabs to the face pieces of gas masks, this young worker is one of the many company employees who switched over from work on vacuums when the plant was converted. Betty likes her new job better than the old one. "It bears a lot more relationship to my American Women's Voluntary Services work," she says. Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan

VANDENBERG AFB, CALIF. -- The Aqua-EOS satellite rests on a stand in the Spaceport Systems International (SSI) payload processing facility on South Vandenberg AFB. Aqua will provide a six year chronology of the planet and its processes. Comprehensive measurements taken by its onboard instruments will allow scientists to assess long-term change, identify its human and natural causes and advance the development of models for long-term forecasting. The Focus for the Aqua Project is the multi-disciplinary study of the Earth's Interrelated Processes (atmosphere, oceans, and land surface) and their relationship to earth system changes. The global change research emphasized with the Aqua instrument data sets include: atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles, clouds, precipitation and radiative balance; terrestrial snow and sea ice; sea surface temperature and ocean productivity; soil moisture; and the improvement of numerical weather prediction. Aqua-EOS is scheduled for launch aboard a Delta II 7920-10L vehicle on April 18, 2002 KSC-02pd0328

VANDENBERG AFB, CALIF. -- The Aqua-EOS satellite is again horizontal for instrument deployment while in the Spaceport Systems International (SSI) payload processing facility on South Vandenberg AFB.  Aqua will provide a six year  chronology of the planet and its processes. Comprehensive measurements  taken by its onboard instruments will allow scientists to assess long-term  change, identify its human and natural causes and advance the development of models for long-term forecasting. The Focus for the Aqua Project is the multi-disciplinary study of the Earth's  Interrelated Processes (atmosphere, oceans, and land surface) and their  relationship to earth system changes.
