REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- Christy Reddy is a systems engineer from the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering's Center Engineering Directorate's Systems Engineering Management Division. She currently serves as the Requirements and Architecture lead for the Multi-Mission Launcher effort.
Reddy is responsible for the development of all performance requirements for the MML and verifying that the team's design meets those requirements. She is also responsible for the MML risk management system, executing technical reviews and developing processes to guide the team.
"I am surrounded by people who care a great deal about the quality of our products and supporting our Warfighters," said Reddy. "It is so inspiring to work with people who truly work with purpose. The people on our team consistently rise to overcome the challenges they are faced with and motivate me to do the same."
Reddy says she takes pride in AMRDEC's progressive direction and ability to contribute to readiness for the Army.
"The MML effort is a new way of doing business for the Army," Reddy said. "The government is leading the design and integration efforts of a new weapon system, making the MML an example in facilitating materiel readiness both now and for the future. I am very excited to be a part of that."
Reddy has a Bachelor's degree from Auburn University in Industrial & Systems Engineering, as well as a Master's degree from the Naval Postgraduate School in Systems Engineering.
In her free time, Reddy says she enjoys spending time with her family. "I spend most of my time trying to keep up with my very active one year old. Watching him grow and learn is one of my greatest joys in life. When I'm not chasing him around, I enjoy baking, home improvement projects, and the occasional trip to the movies with my husband."
An interesting fact about Reddy is her father and grandfather both worked at AMRDEC, making her a third generation AMRDEC engineer. "I feel a great deal of pride to be following in their footsteps."
