Mike Meyer

Mr. Meyer is the NASA Technical Fellow for Cryogenics within the NASA Engineering and Safety Center (NESC). In this capacity, he leads a cross-agency Technical Discipline Team, augmented by industry, national laboratories, academia, and other government agency experts, to address high risk technical issues related to cryogenic system development and operation. He also provides strategic stewardship guidance for the cryogenic capabilities required by NASA now and in the future. Mr. Meyer received his B.S. (1987) and M.S. (1989) in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and began his NASA career in as a research engineer in the Space Propulsion Technology Division of the NASA Glenn Research Center. Early in his career he was the NASA Technical Lead for the thermal vacuum and captive firing test of the Boeing Delta III Cryogenic Upper Stage rocket in the Plum Brook Station In-Space Propulsion Research Facility (B-2). He also supported the X-33 Propellant Densification development project which demonstrated skid-mounted systems capable of generating, and loading into the X-33 vehicle, oxygen and hydrogen cooled well below their normal boiling points for increased density. Later he led of multiple cross-Agency cryogenic fluid management technology development projects, maturing thermal and fluid management capabilities for ground, launch, and in-space systems in support of NASA’s human exploration program needs. In 2010 Mr. Meyer successfully advocated for, and subsequently served as Principal Investigator for, the Cryogenic Propellant Storage and Transfer (CPST) flight demonstration mission. He is an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and has received numerous NASA and Federal Government awards including the NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal.
