Edward McCullough is a retired principal scientist from Boeing. He has received his professional schooling mainly in nuclear engineering through the U.S. Navy (gaining his Certification for Nuclear Engineering in 1975). Mr. McCullough focuses on concept development and advanced technology at Rockwell Space Systems Advanced Engineering and Boeings Phantom Works. He has researched innovative methods to reduce the development time of technologies and systems from 10 to 20 years down to 5 years. He has experienced successes in the area of chemistry and chemical engineering for extraterrestrial processing and photonics for vehicle management systems and communications. This included leading a chemical process development research team in a skunk works environment for 4 years. Mr. McCullough has led efforts for biologically inspired multi parallax geometric situational awareness for advanced autonomous mobility and space manufacturing. He recently developed several patents, including patents for an angular sensing system; a method for enhancing digestion reaction rates of chemical systems; and a system for mechanically stabilizing a bed of particulate media. Mr. McCullough has served in a variety of professional societies and councils. He is an Emeritus member of the Board of Trustees for the University Space Research Association, a member of the Science Council for Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science, an Emeritus Chairman of the AIAA Space Colonization Technical Committee and a charter member of the AIAA Space Exploration Program Committee. He has worked several studies for the National Research Council.
