Lisa Blodgett, formerly mission area executive for sea control at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, has been appointed to lead the APL’s force projection sector.
APL said Monday Blodgett will succeed Dan Tyler, who will retire from the laboratory after 45 years of service, and be responsible for the precision strike, sea control and strategic deterrence mission areas.
Blodgett previously led the companion advanced capability build and advanced surveillance build programs meant to combine surface and surveillance anti-submarine warfare systems with new technologies.
She is also a member of a Defense Science Board Task Force on unmanned undersea systems, an advisory council for the National Defense Industrial Association undersea warfare division and the Submarine Superiority Technical Advisory Group.
