Rod and Randa Milliron
of Interorbital Systems return.

Randa Milliron is the CEO and co-founder of Interorbital Systems (IOS), a private-sector rocket manufacturing and orbital space launch corporation based in Mojave, California. Randa holds a BA in Psychology and an MA in African Languages from Duquesne University. She is a doctoral candidate in Communication at Humboldt Universitaet, Berlin, Germany, and has undertaken additional formal studies in Chemistry. Randa’s current scientific involvement at Interorbital Systems includes experimentation in the development of heat-resistant composite materials. She also coordinates marketing, all regulatory and launch licensing issues, as well as documenting all rocket engine and launch vehicle systems testing.

Roderick Milliron, President, Co-Founder, and Chief Scientist of Interorbital Systems holds a BS in Mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh, with graduate work in Chemistry at the Freie Universitaet in Berlin, Germany. Mr. Milliron has over two decades of experience in the Aerospace Industry– as an engineer with Grumman Aerospace and General Dynamics–before founding Interorbital in 1996. At IOS, he has designed and successfully designed, prototyped, and fired space-capable rocket engines using both cryogenic and storable liquid propellants. He is responsible for the entire design of both the Sea Star microsat launcher and the Neptune manned orbital rockets. Rod’s goal is to provide the transportation system to affordably access Low Earth Orbit, the Moon and beyond — and to play a role in exploring and colonizing the Solar System.
