Shaping the Future of Technology

History of Millennium


Millennium was established as a Corporation in 1995 by Brian McKee, Kerry Wisnosky, Susan Hall and Lynn McKee.  Starting with our first contract at NASA, Millennium has focused on solidifying its customer relationships and serving programs of national significance. The founders have deliberately expanded and enhanced the Company’s systems engineering and integration capabilities, including applied technology, and transitioned the management function to an elite group of highly qualified engineers.

    1995 Company was incorporated
    1996 Awarded first contracts to develop spacecraft production facility and manage the testing and integration efforts for the Deep Space 1 Mission
    1998 Opened Crystal City Office with contracts to support the Navy’s Advanced Lightweight Exo-Atmospheric Projectile (LEAP) Interceptor program and the Navy’s Standard Missile Program - a forerunner of all of MDA’s interceptor kill vehicle and delivery systems
    1999 Ballistic Missile Defense Organization contract providing Test and Evaluation and Systems Engineering; Won GSA vehicle award for Engineering Services allowing the Company to win several prime contracts with the DOD Laboratories
    2000 Began Sensor Fusion work and started Colorado Springs Office to support Missile Defense Communication Node(MIDCON ).  This system remains a mandatory support asset used for critical cuing of MDA sensors and related systems during all major test event-across the Pacific Ranges today
    2001 Began working on boost phase interceptor as an advanced concept under a sole source prime award
    2002 Received eCAM patent from USPO
    2003 KI Prime contract award with MDA making Millennium the only Small Business leading a major Program Element SETA
    2004 Opened the Huntsville, AL office to focus on BRAC move of MDA headquarters, ending the year with over 100 employees
    2005 Started Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP); Reorganized the Company to enable better communication and management of the geographically dispersed workforce; Achieved ISO 9001 registration of the company’s processes and procedures
    2006 Won first NASA contract with Goddard Space Flight Center; began Model Based Software Development Center in Sunnyvale California, a "Tiger Team" requested by the Missile Defense Agency to develop a software framework and architecture
    2007 Acquired Infoware Systems Incorporated of Satellite Beach Florida, expanding the software engineering and development capability of the company including the Joint Advanced Range Safety System (JARSS).  Millennium leads the re-activation of the National Hover Test Facility at EAFB.  NFIRE mission conceptualized and formulized as part of Millennium's KI prime contract responsibilities - Satellite far exceeds mission performance and life expectations
    2008 Won $45.2 million NASA contract as prime with KSC; acquired SEA and hired over 100 employees in one year; began transition of patented eCAM technology to two development programs: READS with the ARMY and SANDE with NASA.  Began deployment of JARSS-Real Time system to support landing activities of unmanned, reuseable space systems.  Multiple Millennium personnel awarded citations for key support to Operation Burnt Frost in support of safe de-orbit of a U.S. satellite
    2009 Began MAEWS Development program for the ARMY to combine MIDCON and JARRS algorithms into a tool for Missile Defense and consequent management for the ARMY
    2010 Won Operationally Responsive Space, Rapid Response Space Works System Engineering Contract and opened major office in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Expanded support to the Counter Narco-Terrorism Office to include OCONUS support in South America and Central Asia  
    2011 Won Navy Combat Systems Engineering Support Contract to provide advanced, real-time multi-sensor data fusion and sensor pointing.  Won USAF Consolidated Safety Support Contract to provide operations and engineering support to the Air Force 45th Space Wing (45 SW)
    2012 Selected as NASA’s Small Business Prime Contractor of the Year. Won DARPA Phoenix contract to provide an Integrated Telerobotics and Telepresence System to remotely operate a space-based robotic arm manipulator  
    2013 Won NASA Ames $235M Project and Engineering Support Services Contract to provide NASA with air, space, and ground system engineering services  
    2014 Won NASA Kennedy Space Center $100M Ground Systems Development and Operations Program Office Support contract to provide diverse, high-end engineering services to NASA’s GSDO Program Office
