The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Naval Center for Space Technology has appointed John Schaub as director and he will transition from his prior role as senior executive in charge of NCST’s spacecraft engineering department.

NRL said Monday Schaub succeeds Peter Wilhelm, who retired from the research laboratory in 2015.

“[NRL Commanding Officer Mark Bruington] and I have the utmost confidence in [John] as he undertakes the responsibilities of this new assignment,” said John Montgomery, NRL’s research director.

“He’s making strides in collaborating with industry and academia, which is a great place for NRL to be,” said Bruington.

Schaub’s three-decade career at NRL includes contributions to the development of spacecraft and space instruments that support C4ISR, terrestrial and space weather, strategic defense, space robotic servicing, and space science and technology.

He is a senior member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and a voting member of the DoN Space Experiments Review Board.
