Expert's expertise is RF and microwave applications from component design and development to systems integration and support. In the area of new products he has had direct experience with microwave controlled devices (solid state switches, attenuators and modulators, phase shifters, mixers, single-sided band modulators), microwave filters and multiplexers (interdigital, comb-line, coaxial, stripline, microstrip, waveguide, broad and narrow band multiplexers) passive components (hybrids, directional couplers, power dividers) and integrated assemblies (microwave integrated circuits, transmitters, and RF receivers).

Along with component development, Expert can provide subsystem support of custom integrated assemblies from conceptual design through final production, including system analysis, general design concepts, technical reports, design reviews, and test procedures. He has development experience in the areas of corporate feed networks, monopulse radar subassemblies, transducers, air traffic control transponders, TACAN and ECM/EW receivers. He has experience designing pin diode limiters.



Expert has expertise in the area of waveguide, coaxial, and planar microwave antennas. He has developed broadband frequency independent spiral and conical antennas and has expertise in the design of antenna arrays and feed networks.


Expert has been very active in the design of all types of microwave passive devices. He has developed a complete line of directional couplers, filters power dividers, and switches. These devices were in stripline, microstrip, coax, and waveguide. Expert is also knowledgeable in the area of microwave test equipment.
