To realize the full potential of micro- and nanoscale devices in system building, it is critical to develop systems engineering methodologies that successfully integrate stand-alone, small-scale technologies that can effectively interface with the macro world. So how do we accomplish this?Systems Engineering for Microscale and Nanoscale Technologie

About the Editors

M. Ann Garrison Darrin is a member of the principal professional staff and the managing executive of the Space Department at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. She has held several engineering management positions at the laboratory, including in the research center. She has more than 30 years experience in both government (NASA, U.S. Department of Defense) and private industry, particularly with technology development, application, transfer, and insertion into space flight missions. She holds an M.S. in technology management and has authored several papers on technology insertion in addition to coauthoring several patents. Ms. Darrin was the division chief at NASA's GSFC for Electronic Parts, Packaging and Material Sciences from 1993 to 1998. She has extensive background in aerospace engineering management, microelectronics and semiconductors, packaging, and advanced miniaturization. Ms. Darrin is a co-founder of the Mid Atlantic Micro Nano Alliance and the author/editor on two books related to aerospace engineering.

Janet L. Barth is the Chief of the Electrical Engineering Division (EED) at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) where she is responsible for the delivery of spacecraft and instrument avionics to several of NASA's science missions. These include the Solar Dynamics Observatory, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, and the Thermal InfraRed Sensor instrument on the Landsat Data Continuity Mission. She also oversees development of microwave and communications systems and suborbital avionics systems for the GSFC's Wallops Flight Facility. Barth received her B.S. degree in Mathematics from the University of Maryland in 1978 and pursued graduate studies in computer science. She is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and is an elected member of the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society Administrative Committee, and she is active
