Bastion’s Rudy Lopez Receives FOD Director’s Award

Bastion NBL News - Houston, Texas
May 2019

Congratulations to Rudy Lopez, Neutral Buoyancy Lab (NBL) Test Director (TD), for receiving the FOD Director’s Award from Steve Koerner. Rudy was recognized for his expertise and proactive response during a recent NBL suited run where he identified a visor impact (cracked visor) purely by sound. Rudy’s 35 years experience in the NBL, which include 25+ years as a TD, were key factors in helping him recognize the situation and ensuring crew safety.
