In addition to Curriculum Vitae:

According to NASA acronym list at,

http://www.ksc.nasa.gov/facts/acronyms.html

it doesn't mean anything by itself:

CVAD      "Converter, Voltage, ac to dc"
CVAS      Configuration Verification Accounting System
CVDA      "Converter, Voltage Discrete, ac"
CVE      Complete Vehicle Erector
CVR      Change Verification Record
CVR      Configuration Verification Review
CVRD      "Converter, Variable Resistance, to dc Voltage"
CVT      Communications Vector Table
CVT      Concept Verification Testing


However, according to Acronym Finder at,

http://www.acronymfinder.com/

it could mean:

CV  Calorific Value  
CV  Capacitance-Voltage (Measurements)  
CV  Cargo Variant  
CV  Carrier  
CV  Carrier Variant (version of aircraft)  
CV  Carrier Vehicle  
CV  Carrier Vessel (conventional aircraft carrier)  
CV  Carrier-General Purpose  
CV  Cash Value  
CV  Cheval Vapeur (Horsepower)  
CV  Clandestine Vulnerability  
CV  Combat Vehicle  
CV  Command Vehicle  
CV  Commercial Venture  
CV  Computer Validation  
CV  Computer Virus  
CV  Constant Velocity  
CV  Container Vacuum  
CV  Contribution Value  
CV  Control Valve  

So, you see, the context is essential.

I had wondered why it wasn't on my second URL, but it was, just on the next page:

CV  Conventionally Powered Aircraft Carrier  
CV  Cost Variance  
CV  Cras Ves'pere (tomorrow evening)  
CV  Curriculum Vitae  
CV  Multipurpose Aircraft Carrier  
CV  Republic of Cape Verde  

Still surprised it didn't have Current Value (but it did have Cash Value).
