As a manager for Boeing's Commercial Crew Program, Danom Buck leads a variety of Production and Ground Systems segments in the manufacturing, integration and testing of Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner spacecraft. Responsibilities include spacecraft manufacturing, ground systems development to support spacecraft processing, launch vehicle integration, and spacecraft landing and recovery operations.
Buck joined Boeing in 2000 as an engineer for the International Space Station (ISS) Program at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. He held positions with increasing responsibility in systems and project engineering roles, beginning as a systems engineer for spacecraft and payload handling and later as a flight systems engineer for ISS truss elements. Then, as the lead mechanical systems engineer for the ISS truss cargo elements, he was responsible for the end-to-end integration of all major components, subsystems, and acceptance testing to ensure on-orbit performance of the vehicle.
Buck received a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from the University of Florida.
