Following his bachelor’s degree he entered the US Army as a Lieutenant in the Ordnance Corps. In 1974, after serving in the US Army, he joined the Ballistics Research Laboratory where he investigated the application of millimeter-wave techniques to weapon systems. Key among these studies were MMW sensor systems which combined radar and radiometry into a single sensor which became the primary sensor for the SADARM artillery delivered system, which was used effectively in the most reason Iraq war. For his work he received the US Army Research and Development Award in 1981. He subsequently led his research team to establish the Army’s High Resolution Radar Imaging facility at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD, which provides state-of-the-art imaging of ground platforms.
From 1996 to 2004 he was the Chief of the RF & Electronics Division where he was responsible for the research that led to development of the Army’s Multifunction Radio Frequency System (MFRF) which has become a key electronic component in the Future Combat Systems (FCS). He was also responsible for the numerous programs investigating passive MMW Imaging, Ultra-Wideband Radar, and Frequency Control technology. He is currently President of his own firm consulting in MMW and Sub-MMW technology. He is a Fellow of the IEEE Geosciences and Remote Sensing Society.
