Angie L. Tymofichuk, a member of the Senior Executive Service, is the Director of Engineering and Technical Management, Air Force Sustainment Center (AFSC), Tinker Air Force Base, Okla. She is responsible for the development, implementation, and oversight of the Center's technical policies, processes, databases, and goals/standards as well as the overall scientific and engineering expertise for the AFSC. She is the Center's senior engineering manager and provides executive leadership and technical direction to a technical workforce of more than 4,500 science and engineering professionals supporting the center's mission at three locations (Robins Air Force Base, Ga., Hill Air Force Base, Utah, and Tinker AFB, Okla.) and encompassing depot maintenance, repair, and overhaul activities; supply chain management; and a world class software maintenance and development enterprise.
Ms. Tymofichuk began her career in 1990 as a Palace Acquire intern at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, where she worked as a physicist in the Nonlinear Optics Laboratory. She later moved to Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M., where she teamed with NASA and other Air Force laboratories to develop leading edge optical coating technologies. While at Kirtland AFB she became a test manager for the Airborne Laser Program and oversaw the development of that program's integrated test plan, and its test and evaluation master plan. She also served as a crew member on a Congressionally-mandated deployment to the Middle East to determine the potential atmospheric effects on laser characteristics and propagation. In 2001, Ms. Tymofichuk returned to Wright-Patterson AFB to serve as the transition manager responsible for organizing and establishing a new program office for the Loitering Electronic Warfare Killer Advanced Concept Technology Demonstrator.
While at Headquarters Air Force Materiel Command she served as the command's program element manager for more than $1 billion of developmental test infrastructure. She later served in OSD as the lead analyst for 15 test and evaluation program elements across the Department of Defense valued at more than $3.3 billion. Upon returning to the Air Force, Ms. Tymofichuk was assigned as Chief of the Engineering and Technical Management Office, 309th Maintenance Wing, and later promoted to Director of Engineering for the Ogden Air Logistics Center, Hill AFB, Utah, where she served as the commander's principal adviser on all technical information and policy for all science and engineering activities and technical data compliance at the site.
