Work History

Years Employer Title Department Responsibilities
Years: 2006 to Present Employer: Undisclosed Title: President Department: Responsibilities: Expert is currently consulting on a select number of projects, after retiring from forty years of full-time employment as an electrical engineer and inventor for the nation’s leading technology firms. He offers clients very individualized attention, high-quality design and a results-oriented perspective. Skilled in the design of consumer end-item products, developed for high-volume, automated production and also for low-volume, leading-edge, high-technology military products. Expert experienced in the preparation of winning technical proposals and detailed product specifications.
Years: 1997 to 2006 Employer: Honeywell International Title: Sr. Project Engineer Department: Short Range Radio Responsibilities: Expert designed consumer product circuitry for mass production. Developed high-tech, wireless, low-powered sensing devices used for home and industrial security and for home automation applications. Invented new and original product ideas and developed Intellectual Property for Honeywell, including multiple patent applications (one patent granted and the others currently pending). He is experienced in the printed circuit board layout of high frequency radio transmitters. He developed a simulator program for infrared optics in Visual Basic. Expert in the design of low-power, high-gain sensor circuitry. He developed a series of three Pet Immune Passive Infrared Motion Sensors. Originated a series of algorithms for the finest Dual-Technology (microwave and infrared) Motion Sensor ever sold, which guaranteed immunity to pets up to 100 pounds. This technology was granted a United States patent. Specified many custom ASICs and worked with the design/foundry from development through full product completion. These were used for economical production of large-scale commercial products in that they reduced the component count of the products. He is proficient in highly accurate and precise temperature sensing instrumentation, and developed a wireless heat detector. Invented, designed and developed a wireless frost, heat, freezer, refrigerator and flood sensor, conceiving the initial concept and selling it to the Marketing Department. This item replaced a single function device at a savings of 40% of the previous manufacturing cost.
Years: 1995 to 1996 Employer: Lockheed Martin Title: Consultant Department: ATARS Responsibilities: He performed Built In Test (BIT) analysis, troubleshooting and critical review of existing digital/analog designs. Identified design deficiencies through statistical data-analysis modeling techniques. He wrote specification for a 256 mega-pixel reconnaissance camera system. Reverse-engineered and created block diagrams for a complex video system. Expert participated in a proposal team for an electro-optical sensor sys-tem, obtaining a development contract for the target product.
Years: 1993 to 1995 Employer: Hameg Instruments Title: Chief Engineer Department: New York Responsibilities: Expert ran the New York office for a large privately owned worldwide commercial test equipment manufacturing corporation and reported directly to the owner in Germany. Expert performed new product development, customer liaison, advertising design, office management, and production of catalogs and manuals. He developed a digital display interface for a Spectrum Analyzer and PC display software. Issued all English language printed material and wrote, designed and produced sales literature, collateral materials and advertisements. Provided Applications Engineering services and developed new products ideas.
Years: 1979 to 1993 Employer: United Technologies Corporation Title: Sr. Development Engineer Department: Norden Systems Responsibilities: He was responsible for the design/development of Digital Signal Processing circuitry used for the detection of signals immersed in noise. Expert acted as a Project Engineer for various system improvements, upgrades and modernizations. He developed display and processing software, system interfaces and analog and digital circuitry. He developed state machine circuitry using FPLA, FPGA and other gate array products. Expert developed software code in Assembler and Higher Order Languages. Specified high density memory module arrays.
Years: 1975 to 1979 Employer: Griffon Corporation Title: Principle Engineer Department: Telephonics Responsibilities: Expert was the lead circuit design engineer for the Advanced Systems IR&D group, developing fast turnaround circuit/system designs, proposals and new business activities. Expert was responsible for the development of a digital stereo entertainment system used in commercial airliners. He designed communication control electronics and displays. Performed analog and digital circuit/system designs for proposals and developed the hardware upon contract award. As a result of writing a winning proposal, the company received a contract from IBM valued at well over $50M. Designed and developed a MIL-STD-1553 data inter-face.
Years: 1973 to 1975 Employer: Honeywell Corporation Title: Senior Engineer Department: SAICOR Responsibilities: He designed and developed digital and analog signal processing circuitry for a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) Spectrum Analyzer and other commercial test equipment. Produced initial concepts and designed and developed DSP circuit boards. Expert invented an innovative spectral display technique.
Years: 1969 to 1971 Employer: Interstate Electronics Title: Senior Engineer Department: Hartman Systems Responsibilities: Designed and developed Sonobouy release system for the S3A. Suggested a coding scheme that simplified customer’s firmware and reduced hardware in the release system.
