Welcome to NASA IV&V Matters!

Gregory D. Blaney was selected as the Director of the NASA IV&V Program in December 2010. Mr. Blaney has worked for NASA since 1983. Mr. Blaney started working for NASA at Goddard Space Flight Center in 1983 working for the Bendix Field Engineering Corporation supporting NASA’s Satellite Tracking and Data Network. Mr. Blaney entered the Civil Service in 1988 and advanced to the position of Network Director, a position he held until 1996, when he accepted a position here at the NASA IV&V Facility. 

I’m pleased to introduce the NASA IV&V Program’s new blog. We now have Facebook, Twitter and this blog to communicate program information quickly and easily to others. Here at NASA IV&V Matters, we hope to share updates about our mission work, capability and tool development, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) outreach, and many of our other services. We believe that sharing this information can not only help us stay open, honest and transparent, but also help us  better connect with you, the reader.

The IV&V Program has a lot of positive things to share, so for those IV&Vers on staff interested in submitting, please read the guidelines generated by the Strategic Communications Office in advance. These guidelines will ensure everything that is posted on our blog properly represents the IV&V core values and reflects positively on our overall program. 

Please engage us by commenting, as we do look forward to connecting to you. Thank you for taking time to visit NASA IV&V Matters.
