After getting his EE degree in 1968, Warren joined the Air Force and started his wonderful career in the Air Force satellite world. Warren was then assigned to one of the first satellite tracking stations in New Hampshire. Warren quotes, that back then supporting satellites was fun and very exciting. There were no communications satellites, the local telephone was used to transfer commands and data between the satellites and the Air Force satellite control center in California! Also, they commanded a critical satellite at 1 BPS. Warren continued to enjoy the satellite world throughout his career. In 1980, Warren was assigned to a program office at Los Angeles AFB to work with NASA on the Space Shuttle program as part of the team that build Schriever AFB. After retiring from the Air Force, Warren went on to work with Northrop Grumman and continued working at Schriever AFB until he retired again in 2010.
Warren has volunteered with the Discovery Center team since 2012. Warren first joined the “Safety & Light Security” volunteer team. You can mostly find Warren in the Mars Robotics lab these days.
