Dr. Lindsay Millard joined DARPA in July 2014. Her focus is to enable big capabilities on small satellites. Areas of technical expertise include satellite systems engineering, remote sensing, sparse-aperture telescopes, astrodynamics, and guidance, navigation, and control (GNC).
Prior to joining DARPA, Dr. Millard served as an engineer at the RAND Corporation, where she led studies for Project Air Force and the National Security Research Division. Study topics included the feasibility of distributed space-based hyperspectral sensors, the performance of space-based sensors to detect chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive devices, and the assessment of the potential impact of disaggregation concepts for U.S. space architecture. During her time at RAND, Dr. Millard worked within the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy and as an adjunct researcher at Purdue University, where she explored design strategies for imaging spacecraft formations moving under the influence of many celestial bodies.
Dr. Millard holds a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan and a Doctor of Philosophy in aerospace engineering from Purdue University. Dr. Millard served as a researcher and engineer at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, National Academies’ National Research Council, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and NASA Kennedy Space Center’s International Space Station Program.
