Shawn Miller is an Engineering Fellow with Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems in Aurora, Colorado. Currently, he is the Chief Architect for the Joint Polar Satellite System Common Ground System, which has been in operations to support the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite since its launch in October 2011. Prior to his current assignment, he was the Technical Director for the JPSS CGS Interface Data Processing Segment. He has been working in various aspects of satellite remote sensing since 1991. Dr. Miller has a PhD degree in aerospace engineering sciences (1995) from the University of Colorado. His dissertation focused on cloud classification and rain rate retrieval from space. Upon completion of his degree, he began a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Maryland, where he worked from 1996 to 1997 on a combined infrared/microwave rain rate retrieval algorithm for experimental operational use at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Since joining Raytheon Company in 1997, Dr. Miller has worked in a number of areas, including: algorithms, requirements flowdown and test software for the Visible/Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite, risk reduction studies for the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite R-series (GOES-R) Advanced Baseline Imager and Ground System, a patented remote sensing system simulation software package, algorithm management and data quality analyses, and architectural studies and development planning for the CGS. Beyond his current duties with IDPS, Dr. Miller also supports Raytheon across several other existing or potential programs, most related in some manner to environmental remote sensing or data processing. Each spring, he gives a remote sensing seminar at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is also the Chair of the American Meteorological Society Board on Enterprise Economic Development, under the AMS Commission on Weather and Climate Enterprise. As BEED Chair, he helps to plan the annual AMS Washington Forum. He is also a member of the AMS Ad Hoc Committee on Environmental Security.
