Craig Staresinich
Fair Lakes VA (SPX) May 12, 2005
Northrop Grumman has named Craig Staresinich sector vice president and general manager for its Kinetic Energy Interceptors program.

Staresinich reports directly to Donald C. Winter, corporate lead executive for missile defense and president of Northrop Grumman's Mission Systems sector.

In this role, Staresinich is responsible for leading the company�s effort to develop and test the Kinetic Energy Interceptors program, a mobile, multi-use land- and sea-based missile- defense system.

A Northrop Grumman-led team won the eight-year program in December 2003.

"Craig brings a long, distinguished and successful program-management record with NASA, the U.S. Department of Defense and our intelligence agency customers to this program," said Winter.

"His broad experience managing major space systems programs like Chandra and the Defense Support Program will contribute greatly to the successful execution of this much-needed capability for the Missile Defense Agency."

A 22-year veteran of the company, Staresinich, 56, had been vice president and deputy of programs for Northrop Grumman's Space Technology sector in Redondo Beach, Calif.

Prior to this post, he managed several prominent, high-technology programs for the sector, including NASA�s Project Prometheus, Program 072 and the Chandra program, which provides X-ray images to scientists and astronomers worldwide.

He joined the former TRW in 1983 after a 14-year career with NASA�s Johnson Space Center where he helped manage the integration of payloads into the space shuttle program. Staresinich held several Mission Operations Control Center positions on the Apollo program, Skylab and shuttle programs.

Staresinich earned a bachelor�s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Pittsburgh.
