Col. Pamela Melroy Tapped For The Position

Systems Planning and Analysis, Inc., (SPA) has announced the appointment of former NASA Space Shuttle Commander and retired USAF Colonel, Pamela A. Melroy, to the SPA Board of Directors. With a distinguished career of over 25 years as a professional jet and test pilot, nearly 1000 hours in space, and executive positions in industry and government, Colonel Melroy brings her unique and extensive experience in space, hypersonics, defense, and international markets to SPA.

Colonel Melroy flew three Space Shuttle missions and was one of only two women to command the Space Shuttle. Before retiring she logged over 6000 hours flight time in more than 50 different aircraft. After leaving NASA in 2009, Colonel Melroy served in government and industry executive positions including the FAA and as the Deputy Director, Tactical Technology Office at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). While at DARPA she oversaw the hypersonics portfolio and national issues related to hypersonics.
