DARPA also funded BigDog, the dynamically stable quadruped robot created by Boston Dynamics.

After receiving her Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at the California Institute of Technology, Dugan worked as a researcher at the Institute for Defense Analyses and then as a program manager at DARPA’s Defense Science Office where she led the “Dog’s Nose” mine-detection effort.

She is also the co-author of “Engineering Thermodynamics” and formed the company RedX, which builds security gear, including an explosives detector that relies on fluorescent ink.
