He served as a Reconnaissance Staff Officer for NATO (1989-1992). As a Tactical/Evaluation observer pilot for NATO, he flew evaluation missions in the RF-4C and RF-16. Todd earned his MS from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (international campus) in 1987. Following USAF retirement, he worked as an instructional designer/programmer and E-3AWACS pilot simulator for the Boeing Company in Midwest City OK and was a contract instructional systems designer for the University of Oklahoma, building courseware for Federal Aviation Administration air traffic controllers at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City. In 2000, Todd earned his EdD from Oklahoma State University and performed postdoctoral research at the FAA Academy (2000-2007), where his work on computer-based scoring of best practices in air traffic control was published in the International Journal of Aviation/Aerospace Education and Research (2007). Todd served as editor-in-chief of three scholarly journals from 2001 to 2015, performed lecturer duties at the FAA Academy from 2005 to 2017, and has written articles, books, and book chapters on situation awareness, aviation mental health, pilot selection, and pilot psychological assessment.
