Valcor is proud to announce that Vitor Cardoso, Senior project Engineer, has been awarded NASA’s Silver Snoopy Award.

Cardoso was recognised for his ’superb’ effort in helping develop the Tank Pressurisation Assembly (TAP) that will be used to control the gaseous oxygen used by the RS-25 main engines in the space Launch system.

The Silver Snoopy Award is given to candidates who have significantly contributed to the human space flight programme to ensure flight safety and mission success. Less than 1% of the aerospace programme workforce receive it annually.

”We are so very proud of Vitor and him being the recipient of this prestigious award,” stated Tom Iervolino, Vice-President, Business and Product Development. “He truly is a shining star on the Valcor team who has not only contributed on this important programme, but on many others. He is a class act and is quick to share the spotlight with his team members, which was one of the first things he said at the award ceremony. Thanks Vitor!”
