Program / Policy Management

NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California, was responsible for managing the LADEE mission, building the spacecraft and performing mission operations for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Washington. The LADEE mission was part of the Lunar Quest Program managed at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland., was responsible for managing the science instruments and technology demonstration payload, and the science operations center. NASA Wallops Flight Facility was responsible for launch vehicle integration, launch services, and launch range operations.

At NASA Headquarters, John Grunsfeld was associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate.

James Green was director of the Planetary Division.

Joan Salute was LADEE program executive, and Sarah Noble was the program scientist.

At Ames, Butler Hine was LADEE project manager. Dawn McIntosh was the deputy project manager.

At Marshall, Danny Harris was the Lunar Quest program manager.

At Goddard, Robert Caffrey was the LADEE payloads manager.

At Wallops, Doug Voss was launch manager. Bruce Underwood was deputy launch manager.

Orbital Sciences Corp., was responsible for the Minotaur V rocket that will carry LADEE into space.
