Former Pentagon acquisition chief Ellen Lord has joined the GEOST board of directors, the company announced this week.

GEOST makes sensors for space domain awareness, missile tracking and ISR.

"Lord’s experience as a defense industry leader will provide critical insights for GEOST's research and development (R&D) expansion, as well as extension of production operations," a company statement reads.

Last August, New York-based private-equity firm ATL Partners took a majority stake in GEOST "with plans to significantly scale GEOST's business by continuing to invest in new product research and development as well as enhanced production capabilities," according to the statement.
