Shelley Peterson has supported Lockheed Martin pursuits, diving into the rapidly evolving augmented reality and wearables market to integrate emerging technologies into key solutions for Lockheed Martin. Her combined skill and reputation as a thought leader across the augmented reality industry have resulted in repeated demonstration of the potential of augmented reality technology across numerous Lockheed Martin Space programs. Shelley serves as the principle investigator of augmented reality for Lockheed Martin Space, and in 2019 her role has expanded to include the prin investigator role for augmented reality for Lockheed Martin’s Future Enterprise Program (FEP).
Shelley obtained her mathematics and physics degree at a young age, and taught college math at the University of North Texas at age 21. Early in her professional career, Shelley founded a business focused on emerging technology solutions, including military aircraft distributed mission training and multi-spectral imaging monoculars for SOCOM. Her pursuits have included software development on the B1-Bomber simulator at Dyess AFB, electronic warfare capabilities at E-Systems, and she has served on the Space Based Infrared Systems (SBIRS) satellite program as the first certified Mission Management crew member and instructor.
In her spare time, Shelley teaches college mathematics as an adjunct, enjoys volunteering for and speaking at STEM events, operates Shotlink Lasers for the PGA AT&T ProAm, and might occasionally be seen playing in a rock band.
