Troy L. Cahoon graduated from Cardston High School in Cardston,
Alberta, Canada in 1994. He completed his Bachelor of Science in
Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University (BYU), UT, in 2003.
He received his United States Air Force commission on April 28, 2003,
after completing Reserve Officer Training at BYU.
USAF assignment for Captain Cahoon was at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio.
He worked as an electronic warfare engineer and program manager for the
Special Ops Systems Group of the Aerospace Systems Center, providing
upgrades for the AC-130 Gunship and other Special Ops aircraft.
Starting in May 2006, he was assigned to Hill AFB, Utah, as a test
engineer, and then program manager, for the Range Threats Squadron of
the 84th Combat Sustainment Wing. In June 2008, Captain Cahoon moved to
the Range Squadron of the 388th Fighter Wing, also at Hill AFB. There
he worked as a range instrumentation engineer on the Utah Test and
Training Range (UTTR). In August 2009, Captain Cahoon entered the
Graduate School of Engineering and Management at the Air Force
Institute of Technology (AFIT), where he graduated in March 2011 with a
Master's degree in Aeronautical Engineering. Captain Cahoon's current
assignment is at Edwards AFB, California, where he is working in the
Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Propulsion Directorate.
