This license covers 35 flights to test reusable launch technologies for future manned flights, and is the second of only two issued by FAA.

Before that, he was a technical manager at Intel Corporation. Mr. Greason was cited by Time Magazine in 2001 as one of the "Inventors of the Year" for his work on the EZ-Rocket. He has worked closely with FAA as an active participant in the COMSTAC RLV Working Group. He also provided extensive technical input for the FAA Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on RLV Licensing in 1998. Mr. Greason is one the Nation's leading proponents of RLV technologies, both manned and unmanned.
