I am an electrical engineer with over 30 years experience in land, sea, air and spaced-based radar systems with additional specialties in multi-variable non-linear control theory, digital signal processing, and real-time data acquisition systems.
I have served globally as expert consultant for several member nations within the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and have participated in several seminal large-scale international research projects including the NASA Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere/Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Response Experiment (TOGA/COARE), the Kwajalein Experiment (KWAJEX), and the Dynamics of the Madden‐Julian Oscillation (DYNAMO) project.
While at NWI, I designed and built the TTU Ka-band mobile Doppler pulse compression radar systems and while at Texas A&M University, I designed and built the Shared Mobile Atmospheric Research and Teaching Radar (SMART-R), C-band systems for the SMART-R consortium which consisted of The National Severe Storms Laboratory, Texas A&M University, The University of Oklahoma, and Texas Tech University. In addition, I have worked with numerous other universities, both in the U.S. and abroad, on a wide variety of projects.
I am a licensed professional engineer, President and Owner of Vortexas Engineering Consultants, and I have served as an expert witness in a variety of microwave radiative transfer/interference and radar related court cases and as a consultant/subcontractor to the U.S. armed services in matters of homeland defense and technological development.
