Hailey Nichols

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Hailey founded Locus Lock in Fall of 2021. She completed her degree in the Summer of 2022 with her Master’s in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and was a graduate researcher in the Radionavigation lab of Dr. Todd Humphreys. Hailey recognized that the precise and robust positioning techniques developed in the Radionavigation lab are valuable beyond research and into the commercial sector, hence the formation of Locus Lock.

Hailey received her Bachelor’s in Aerospace Engineering with Aerospace Information Technology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Spring 2019. She has also previously worked as a software engineer for Lockheed Martin, Kitty Hawk, and Aurora Flight Sciences.

Hailey is passionate about PNT and the commercialization opportunities of software-defined radio.
