Background Information

Introduction: | Overview | Background | Speaker and Presenter |

My multi-disciplinary applied research experience includes innovative concept development and writing proposals on various project ideas such as 1) Optical-Mechanical measurement devices that sustain the environment with improved production rate efficiency and minimal waste, 2) Smart adaptive controller design with advanced power management, 3) High energy lasers for fractional distillation and compositional disassociation, 4) Miniature micro-fluidic optical spectrometer design, 5) Coherent beam interference for detecting concealed objects, 6) Lasers for target tracking and pointing in medical and tactical applications, 7) OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) retinal image processing methods, and 8) Miniature CMGs (Control Moment Gyros) for inertially referenced stabilization of alignment relay lasers and HELs (High Energy Lasers).

15 years Experience in the Aerospace Industry 1978-1991
