Andrew Hamilton
Electronics Engineer
Air Force Research Laboratory

Andrew Hamilton is an electronics engineer with the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate in the Air Force Research Laboratory located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.  His technical expertise focuses on electromagnetics, especially wave propagation in non-linear media and diagnostics of plasma properties. 

In studying ionospheric scattering, he has led numerous field experiments that leveraged key research sites such as the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) in Alaska and the now-defunct Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. 

As an IEEE senior member, he now leads the Low-Cost Space and In-Space Assembly and Manufacturing programs for Air Force ManTech where he sponsors emerging and novel space technologies and supports their manufacturing maturation, ensuring significant return on investment for the defense industrial base.
