The Northrop Grumman joint venture National Security Technologies, LLC aviation program at the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Nevada Field Office received the 2012 U.S. Department of Energy Jeff Snow Aviation Program Memorial Award.

The energy department’s Aviation Management award recognizes the most outstanding nominees in the categories of aviation program, federal aviation program management, operations/support professional and aviation safety professional.

“This is an accomplishment that stands as a testament to our collective and ongoing commitment to the safety and effectiveness of our organization,” said Raymond J. Juzaitis, president of NSTec. “We are extremely proud to earn such an honor for this organization and look forward to continuing to raise our collective bar of excellence.”

In addition to the program award, the Nevada Field Office’s NSTec aviation program received recognition for another year of accident- and incident-free flight operations.†This represents the 18th consecutive year of mishap-free flight operations at the laboratory and field office.

The aviation team was also recognized in two other categories. Les Winfield, Nevada Field Office aviation manager, received the federal aviation program manager award, and Tim Rourke, Nevada Field Office aviation safety officer, was given the aviation safety professional award.
