I have been working in a department whose goal is to develop secure
communications techniques for satellite communication networks. These
techniques are used in military, civilian and commercial communications
systems. This requires knowledge of electronics, software, cryptography,
contracting, and �most important of all�our customer�s needs.|
B.S. Electrical Engineering, University of Lowell||Why Space?
I wanted to work on leading edge technology, and early in my career I was
given the opportunity to work in the space arena. The government agency
that I am employed by allows me to utilize technologies years before their
commercial potential or application can be realized
