MANASSAS, Va., Sept. 18, 2013—Aurora Flight Sciences announced today that The Honorable Ellen O'Kane Tauscher has been elected to the Aurora Board of Directors.

Tauscher is a former Member of the United States House of Representatives, representing California's 10th Congressional district. She was first elected in 1996 and served until March 2009, when she was nominated by President Barack Obama as Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs.
