UTMB Administrative Support

Coordinated efforts by the Orion Group are aimed towards a number of technological advances and interfaces. Orion Group provides technologies aimed towards management of information, data capture, and web management for the FAA COE for Commercial Space Transportation. These technologies are intended to help monitor and track multiple ongoing projects within the FAA COE to ensure that they are meeting objectives, delivering products, and staying within budgeted cost constraints. Data will be captured automatically and made readily accessible to appropriate parties. Orion will provide a centralized transparent means of reporting and for data capture, with cost effectiveness, to standardize reporting requirements. This model eliminates the need for additional administrative personnel within each university that would be required to learn FAA COE administrative standards. The organizational structure provided is simple and designed to facilitate executive business operations and sound management strategies. Further, Orion can lead and coordinate activities of the COE CST member universities by conducting periodic teleconferences to communicate and organize COE CST activities, including setting the agenda, organizing teleconferences, and recording and distributing minutes of all in-person and teleconference meetings, including the annual technical and administrative meetings. In these ways, Orion will provide an organizational mechanism and structure to accomplish streamlined business planning, effective coordination and collaboration of projects, and the ability to secure a continuing stream of federal and private funding to sustain the program.
