Story
Introduction
John Keller biography

John Keller is editor-in-chief of Military & Aerospace Electronics magazine, which provides extensive coverage and analysis of enabling electronic and optoelectronic technologies in military, space, and commercial aviation applications. A member of the Military & Aerospace Electronics staff since the magazine's founding in 1989, Mr. Keller took over as chief editor in 1995, and has supervised the publication's expansion from solely a print magazine to an integrated media franchise that includes a site on the World Wide Web, a weekly electronic newsletter, the Defense Executive monthly e-newsletter, print buyers guide, as well as the Military & Aerospace Electronics Forum conference and trade show.

Mr. Keller was a founding member of Military & Aerospace Electronics when the magazine launched in January 1990 from its then-headquarters in Alexandria, Va. He took a one-year hiatus from the magazine in 1992 to join Jane's Information Group as aviation technology correspondent for Interavia Aerospace Review, the Interavia Air Letter, Jane's Airport Review, and Aviation Ground Equipment Market.

From 1986 to 1989 Mr. Keller was a technology editor at Pasha Publications in Arlington, Va., where he produced the newsletters Advanced Military Computing and C3I Report. Previous to that he was Pentagon and Capitol Hill correspondent for the Scripps League Newspapers Washington, D.C., bureau, where he covered military and national issues for daily newspapers located throughout the United States.

From 1981 to 1984 he was a reporter on daily newspapers in California and Tennessee, covering local and national issues related to the U.S. Army at Fort Campbell, Ky., and to U.S. naval aviation at Lemoore Naval Air Station, Calif. As a freelance writer, Mr. Keller's byline has appeared in such publications as Jane's Defence Weekly and Armed Forces Journal.

Mr. Keller graduated from San Francisco State University in 1981 with a bachelor's degree in journalism with an emphasis in international relations. He lives in Milford, N.H., with his wife, Judy, and his 18-year-old daughter, Katy. He is an avid historical re-enactor and fife musician who specializes in fife-and-drum field music of the French and Indian War, Revolutionary War, Napoleonic Wars, and American Civil War periods. He also is a fiddler and mandolin player with the 19th-century musical groups The Camp Lincoln String Band and The Canebrake Minstrels.
