  • Physicist's Legacy Continues Beyond Retirement

    Nov 12, 2009

    During his 52 years as an Army civilian, Dr. Bill McCorkle has been recognized countless times for his contributions in the fields of aviation and missile technology. Throughout his career, McCorkle has "had fun" working as a designer, explorer, researcher, developer and manager. He is a scientist, engineer, mathematician, organizer, pilot, teacher, leader and visionary. He is a charter member of the Army's Senior Executive Service, and an internationally recognized leader in aviation and missile technology. He is the director of the Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center where, with more than 3,100 employees involved in research and development of missiles, aviation and unmanned aerial vehicle technology, he leads the Army's largest research and development center. As the chief of AMRDEC and its forerunner, the Army Missile Laboratory, McCorkle oversees an organization that has been named the Army's best laboratory eight times since it was formed in 1981. But more than anything else, McCorkle is a physicist. "I've always believed that people should do what they are interested in," he said, as he sat in an office where the table and desk are overflowing with administrative and research reports, shelf space is filled with numerous awards and accolades, and the white board is covered in scientific equations.
