"The spacecraft for which you supported us now include the Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Climate Orbiter, Stardust and the Mars 2001 Orbiter. In each case, your outstanding technical expertise and rigorous test discipline yielded data in which we were confident. Your responsiveness to our compressed schedules and changing requirements allowed us to meet our deadlines. The effort that you put into your testing in support of these projects is deeply appreciated... ."
