Avoiding Surprise in an Era of Global Technology Advances
refereed many journal publications with the most recent being “A Vision-Based Formation Control Framework.” His most recent of the many refereed conference proceedings is “Camera Trajectory Estimation using Inertial Sensor Measurements and Structure from Motion Results.” Dr. Taylor received his A.B. degree in electrical computer and systems engineering from Harvard College, his M.S. degree in computer engineering from Yale University, and his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Yale University. He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Association for Computing Machinery and has received numerous awards throughout his career.
Dianne S. Wiley is a Boeing Technical Fellow for Space Exploration Systems, NASA Systems, Washington, D.C. She recently left the Missile Defense National Team, where she was responsible for international coordination of Defense of Deployed Forces, Friends, and Allies. In addition to managing proposal strategy and execution for the enterprise, she also serves as the enterprise liaison to the Boeing Technical Fellowship to facilitate technology maturation and technology transition to the space exploration systems business area. Previously, Dr. Wiley was assigned to the Missile Defense National Team, responsible for international missile defense activities for defense of friends and allies and defense of U.S. deployed forces. In her prior assignment with the Boeing Phantom Works, she was the program manager for airframe technology on the NASA Space Launch Initiative Program, overseeing the development and demonstration of advanced structure and materials technology for next-generation reusable launch vehicles. Previously, she was with Northrop Grumman for 20 years where she was manager of Airframe Technology. In that position, Dr. Wiley was responsible for research and development and technology transition in structural design and analysis, materials and processes, and manufacturing technology. During this time, she was responsible for transitioning airframe core technologies into three new business areas (space, biomedicine, and surface ships) to offset declines in traditional business. Before that, she served as a senior technical specialist on the B-2 program. Dr. Wiley was responsible for developing and implementing innovative structural solutions to ensure the structural integrity of the B-2 aircraft. Dr. Wiley’s 25 years of technical experience have involved durability and damage tolerance, advanced composites (organic and ceramic), high-temperature structures, smart structures, low-observable structures, concurrent engineering, and rapid prototyping. Dr. Wiley holds a Ph.D. in applied mechanics from UCLA School of Engineering and Applied Science. She attended Defense Systems Management College (1996). She is a graduate of the Center for Creative Leadership (1995), Leadership California Class of 1998, and the Boeing Leadership Center (2002).
