Edwin Miller Leads Reusable Solid Rocket Booster Project
by Staff Writers
Huntsville AL (SPX) Aug 05, 2008

Edwin H. "Hank" Miller.

Edwin H. "Hank" Miller has been named booster deputy project manager in the Reusable Solid Rocket Booster Project Office at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

Miller manages the technical, cost and schedule aspects for space shuttle reusable solid rocket boosters. His responsibilities include planning, budgeting, scheduling, engineering design and development, integration, test, evaluation, and launch operations.

During a space shuttle launch, the two solid rocket boosters generate 85 percent of the necessary thrust during the first two minutes of flight.

Miller joined NASA in 1988 as a subsystem manager in the Solid Rocket Booster Project Office and managed the project's Service Life Extension Program, or SLEP, beginning in 2001.

SLEP was part of a NASA study that evaluated space shuttle hardware and facilities for possible safety and performance improvements that had the potential to extend the shuttle's use. He was appointed business manager of the project office in 2003, and served until appointed to his current position.

Miller earned a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering in 1985 from Auburn University in Auburn, Ala., and a master's of science in engineering in 2000 from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

He was presented NASA's Silver Snoopy award by the Astronaut Corp in 1999 for his contributions to the success of human spaceflight missions. He received the NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal, which recognizes significant, specific contributions to NASA's mission, in 2006.

From the development of the Saturn V rocket that delivered the first men to the moon, to the design and development of the space shuttle's propulsion system, the Marshall Center has been at the forefront of American's space propulsion challenges and continues to use its expertise to safely fly the space shuttle until its retirement in 2010.
