Expert has been involved in various aspects of the real-time embedded computing market, including exposure to all types of data collection sensors including but not limited to seismic, video, acoustic, infrared, etc. His exposure to ISR, situational awareness, and asymmetric applications is diverse and allows him to view the related technology from both a technical and business point of view. In his career, he has supported both prime contractors, key government labs, and all the armed services and intelligence communities. In a recent position with Textron Defense Systems he conducted technical and business development projects that involved seismic sensors combined with multiple sensor modalities to create force protection, perimeter defense, and key asset protection systems. He has a deeply technical background as well as program and project-level business skills. In addition to Textron. He has held key business development and management positions with General Electric, Intel, and Gould Electronics as well as other well-known smaller high technology organizations with leading-edge COTS products.

Expert holds an M.S. from Western Michigan University and a B.S from B.G.S.U.

He has been involved in numerous medical device quality control projects that started with initial research at the University of Illinois Medical Center in Chicago. He covers in-depth reviews of case studies and recent work involving robotic-based vision systems for automated inspection.

Robotics Vision.

Developed a multifaceted marketing plan for a robotic vision system that inspects medical devices for flaws and defects. The system is an automated robotic-enabled vision system that allows for seamless inspection. The plan included developing a social media network, technical qualifications, and establishing marketing collateral. Imaging Cameras.

Set up marketing and sales plans, established web content, and started a channel development process for several types of imaging sensors. Presented products and initiated discussion with viable third-party integrators.
