The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory said this week it has named former Pentagon acquisition chief Ellen Lord a senior fellow.

Lord served as under secretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment until January. She previously was chief executive of Textron Systems.

"APL's Senior Fellows are distinguished experts in national security and space who work with technical experts at the Laboratory to better inform technology and policy decisions made by U.S. military leaders and senior government officials," Johns Hopkins said.
