Dr. Barbara Kozel Craig ‘88 graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor’s in aerospace engineering. She subsequently received her master’s and doctoral degrees in aerospace engineering from The University of Texas at Austin. She studied at the UT Center for Space Research and completed her dissertation in novel methods for precise orbit determination of low earth orbiting, remote sensing satellites.  As part of her graduate studies, Craig worked at NASA Johnson Space Center on the space shuttle’s GPS attitude verification flight experiment. She later accepted a position at UT Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) where she worked on positioning techniques and applications using GPS technology. In 1998 Craig left UT ARL to co-found Ticom Geomatics, Inc. (TGI),  where she served multiple roles, including board member, vice president, and director of research and development. Her technical efforts focused on the development of algorithms to utilize GPS precise timing along with time and frequency of arrival measurements to geolocate radio frequency signals of interest. Under the leadership of Craig and her business partners, TGI thrived, growing to 200+ employees and known for building systems of sensors supporting the Department of Defense and the intelligence community during the global war on terrorism and other overseas engagements. Craig continued her work at TGI until its acquisition. She now holds a consultant role to the parent company, CACI, Inc. Craig is an active member of the Texas A&M Aerospace Engineering External Advisory Board. She is married with two children and resides in Austin, Texas.
