Mr. Martin began his career at NASA in 1990 and has worked at both NASA Headquarters and at Goddard Space Flight Center. He began in the Office of Space Science at NASA Headquarters before moving to Goddard Space Flight Center, as a Program Integration Manager for two space science organizations (Structure and Evolution of the Universe and the Astronomical Search for Origins). He was the chief of a GSFC office created to manage Technology programs for Headquarters, such as, the Cross-Enterprise Technology Program, Earth Science Technology Office, and the agency's Small Business Innovative Research/Small Business Technology Transfer Program. Mr. Martin returned to Headquarters in 2000 and served as Assistant Associate Administrator for Advanced Systems in NASA's Office of Space Flight. During this time, he chaired multi-enterprise, multi-center strategic planning teams, the Decadal Planning Team and the NASA Exploration Team. He was named NASA's Space Architect in October 2002, and led the development of strategic architectures and identified high-level requirements for new space systems. These studies became the foundation for the Nation's Vision for Space Exploration. From 2005 to 2007, Mr. Martin was detailed from NASA to serve as the director of the Summer Studies Program (SSP) at the International Space University.
