About ERC

ERC, Incorporated was established in 1988 by Dr. Y.C.L. Susan Wu, the first woman to be awarded a Ph.D. in Aeronautical Engineering from the prestigious California Institute of Technology (Caltech).

From its humble beginnings in the basement of Susan’s home, ERC has become a large, robust small business working in multiple locations around the United States.  

In 1998, Susan’s oldest son, Dr. Ernie Wu, left his research position at Harvard University to take over as ERC's President and CEO. Kenny Frame joined the ERC family in 2007 serving as President. Under Ernie’s and Kenny’s leadership, ERC continues to provide high quality engineering, research and development, information technology, and other services for NASA and the Department of Defense.
