Defense System Engineering, Integration & Test


KODA was founded on six decades of weapon system development experience – from hands-on engineering to executive leadership. We have been directly responsible for solving complex problems, developing highly technical products, and we delivered time after time. From designing radar systems to leading large-scale flight tests to managing international programs, we have a unique understanding of customer needs, deep domain expertise and proven technical skills. Our senior government decision-maker perspective, understanding of government organizations and experience integrating large multi-disciplinary teams make us distinctly qualified in our field.

Leadership Team

KODA Technologies was founded in 2017 by Julie Schumacher, a former engineer, Program Manager and Senior Executive with both the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command / Army Forces Strategic Command and the Missile Defense Agency, and David Conrad, a missile defense expert and former Principal Member of the Technical Staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. The KODA leadership team brings technical and management expertise, as well as perspectives gained from leading government organizations.
