Background
The Human Systems Integration Division (Code TH) has been part of the NASA Ames Research Center for over 30 years and is currently one of the four divisions under the Office of Exploration Technology (Code T). From 1960 to 1977 the division was known as the Biotechnology Division (Code LT) under the Office of Director of Life Sciences (Code L). It was renamed to Man-Vehicle Systems Research Division (Code LM) in 1977. In 1984 the division was reassigned to the Director of Aerospace Systems (Code F) and renamed the Aerospace Human Factors Research Division (Code FL). The name changed in 1995 to Flight Management and Human Factors Division (Code AF) when it was moved to the Office of Director of Aeronautics (Code A). In 1998 the division was reassigned again to the Office of Director of Information Systems (Code I) and renamed to the Human Factors and Technology Division (Code IH). The division was reassigned to its current directorate in 2006 and changed to its present name, Human Systems Integration Division (Code TH).
