Prototyping Specialist
I'm a professional with more than thirty years of experience in research, development, system design & integration, production, and test of commercial and high-reliability electro-optic systems, along with expertise in constructing proof-of-concept prototypes to support technical, business, and customer objectives. I have a small business, p-brane LLC, providing electrical engineering, electronic prototyping, modeling, analysis, design, R&D, and networking consulting services. Some past projects include an undersea power and communication junction box, fiber optic delay line, an undersea transceiver design study, a medium voltage power supply and actuator driver, and adapting software to control a 6 axis alignment robot. Before consulting, I worked at AT&T bell laboratories and Lucent Technologies designing undersea telecommunication and optical networking hardware. I also co-founded Red Sky Systems which made regional undersea systems unit.
