Jennifer Mindock
Jennifer MindockJennifer Mindock attended the University of Florida and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering in 2000. Since graduation, she has worked at JPL as a systems engineer, including six months on the Mars Smart Lander team working mainly on surface systems engineering. While there, Jennifer performed analyses of the rover surface mission, and led design team meetings to define rover power modes and create high-level surface scenarios. To help in her work, she learned to use a Martian terrain-modeling tool to evaluate requirements for the landing system. She also performed mobility testing of the large prototype rover and analyzed data to characterize its behavior. Currently, Jennifer is the avionics validation and verification lead on the Mars Exploration Rover Project, which will send two rovers to Mars in 2003. In this capacity, she is responsible for making sure that the avionics requirements are tested correctly. This September, she will attend Stanford University to obtain a Masters of Science degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics.
