News NASA has honored CFD software developer Dr. David Saunders with a Silver Snoopy Award.

Saunders, a contractor with ELORET Corp. and ERC, Inc., was honored for writing numerous codes to streamline the often tedious and time consuming task of running and analyzing high fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations, thus greatly reducing the turnaround time, stress, and human errors associated with running CFD simulations.

His software tools are now frequently used by the mission support team to create grids that model damages on the space shuttle; to extract surface and boundary layer properties from CFD solutions; and to automate the steps involved in running missing heat tiles or protruding gap filler simulations.

NASA's Astronaut Office awards the Silver Snoopy for outstanding performance to those employees who have significantly contributed to the space agency's goals for human exploration and development of space. The Silver Snoopy is a sterling silver pin that has flown on a shuttle mission, in the form of a Snoopy wearing a space helmet and space suit, To meet the criteria for this award, the individual's work must relate to flight safety or mission success. Job performance must be outstanding to distinguish the individual in his or her particular area of responsibility and it must make a meaningful contribution to flight safety or mission success. This coveted award has been presented to less than one percent of the NASA workforce
