Zamaitis exemplary support and long-term experience with the Advanced Exercise Device (ARED) was recognized as a significant achievement for both JETS and NASA in the long term benefits for the International Space Station (ISS) crew members.
Zamaitis’ commendation spoke to his contributions to the team and the project mission. His mentorship of new engineers and two new project managers over time have provided the team an invaluable service for technical knowledge retention and maintaining a strong team culture. Zamaitis’ extensive knowledge with ARED along with his manufacturing background have proven vital to the success of ARED and future projects.
