Over 34 years of experience in hardware/systems design, development, and testing; project/ program management for the Federal government and industry ISO 9000: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) policy and process development, Mr. Millemaci has been involved in state of the art hardware development, taking products from the design stage to limited production quantities for military and commercial clients. He was involved in the design and development of an Automatic Liquid Agent Detector (ALAD) system, utilizing a unique, frequency-hopping data communications system before the advent of such systems. He was also involved in the design and development of a submarine periscope head window cleaning system (3-HEPT) as the lead designer and project manager and produced 11 prototype units that were deployed to submarine bases nationwide.
Mr. Millemaci was involved in the development and testing of a tire pressure monitoring system with Schrader Valve Corporation, evaluating factors that could affect production costs as well as operation and maintenance. He was involved in researching the effects of electromagnetic energy on ordnance fuzes with the ultimate goal of exploiting methodologies to render safe Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). He managed several software development Marine Corp logistics projects, including the award-winning Marine Corps (MC) Equipment Readiness Information Tool (MERIT), which utilized tree-mapping software to visually convey the readiness of each MC asset type.
Mr. Millemaci managed a metrology laboratory for a research and development company, is responsible for computing assets for 500+ users and over 1000 items of test and measurement equipment, including electronic and physical standards. Mr. Millemaci supports the STEM Development Office under the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering. In this capacity, he is responsible for interfacing with a Department of Defense STEM Executive Board and its associated Working Group on a regular basis to coordinates the development and execution of STEM policy within the Department. He was a key contributor to the DoD STEM Strategic Plan and Implementation Plan and has contributed to several DoD instructions.
