Lisa Porter, who most recently served as executive vice president and director of In-Q-Tel Labs, has been nominated to be deputy under secretary of defense for research and engineering, according to a White House announcement.

Before joining In-Q-Tel Labs, Porter was the president of Teledyne Scientific & Imaging. Prior to that, she was the first director of the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

If confirmed, Porter would be deputy to former NASA chief Mike Griffin, who recently assumed his role as under secretary of defense for research and engineering.
