Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't it been concluded that the RX-178 development project was going on around the same time AE's GP project (0083)?

That is assuming of course that she remained in the service. Not everyone makes the military a career. Despite being a test-pilot, she disobeyed orders and engaged Bernie's Zaku FZ, resulting in the destruction of a proto-type mobile suit.

I'm sure a lot of people in Fed R&D wouldn't have been too happy with this. My feeling is that she might've been hung out to dry as a scapegoat. This premise forms the basis of a fan-fic called "For The Defense", which is the story of the court-martial of Christina MacKenzie.

The story is more court-room drama than MS action story. If you want to read what I've written, email me.
