On July 27th IEEE Region 5 dedicated Stepping Stone awards to two NASA teams that have been crucial to The National Aeronautical Space Administration (NASA) programs.  One award was presented for the creation of the Analytic Ephemeris Generator (AEG), which provided the rapid planning and real-time orbit predictor for early space programs.  Subsequent advancement of the AEG is still used in manned space mission orbit predictions.
 
Another stepping stone award was presented to the Electronic Systems Test Laboratory (ESTL).  NASA and the Johnson Space Center was recognized for the development of the Electronic Systems Test Laboratory (ESTL) which supported the complexities of an entirely new communications technique – a unified voice / data carrier.  Subsequent system configurations are currently providing the testing for newer technical advances in communication techniques.
