Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert was Staff Engineer at Austin Info Systems (AIS), Dallas Operations until retiring in June 2006. He has more than 40 years experience as an antenna and antenna systems engineer. In 1994 he left E�Systems and formed Target Microwave to develop airborne EW antennas, multi-band satellite communications antenna systems and monopulse tracking feeds. At E-Systems Expert designed numerous broadband polarization diverse antennas for airborne ELINT applications and the microwave interferometer arrays used in many current Air Force airborne surveillance systems (Rivet Joint, Senior Ruby, and Global Hawk). In 1998, Target Microwave was acquired by Austin Info Systems, headquartered in Austin,Texas. While employed by Austin Info Systems (Now Textron Overwatch Systems), Expert designed numerous multi-band communications and tracking antenna systems including the following:

· L/S Band monopuse/pseudo-monopulse tracking feed · X-Band monopulse/pseudo-monopulse tracking feed · C/X/Ku Band ground station communication feed · C/Ku Band ground station communication feed with Ku-Band tracking capability · High efficiency 9.3 meter reflector optics for above · S/X Band monopulse/pseudo-monopulse tracking feed · L/S Band communication feed · S/X Band communication feed · S/X Band monopulse/pseudo-monopulse tracking feed with high power S-Band transmit capability · X/Ka Band ground station communication feed with Ka-Band tracking capability

Earlier in his career, Expert developed S and C-Band beacon antennas for the Project Mercury space capsule (1958), a UHF/L-Band feed for a high power (30 mega-Watt pk/30 kilo�Watt av) radar system at White Sands Missile Range (1963), a 215-2300 MHz con-scan feed for the Atlantic Missile Range (1961) and an L/S band pseudo-monopulse/monopulse telemetry tracking feed for the Pacific Missile Range (1968).

In 2008, as a consultant to TCS (Telemetry and Communications Systems, Inc.), Expert designed a tri-band (L, S and X-Band) feed using HFSS and OSU(NECREF) code. This feed was fabricated by TCS in accordance with drawings supplied by Expert. The feed was assembled, installed and tested in an 8 ft. reflector in three days without requiring any physical modifications to the HFSS/NECREF derived design. G/T requirements were exceeded in all three bands. In 2010, as a consultant to Orbit Communications Systems, Inc., Expert designed a tri-band (L, S and X-Band) telemetry tracking feed using HFSS and OSU(NECREF) code. Final development of this feed is now being carried out by Orbit and will soon be in operation at a Patuxent River tracking station. The feed was featured at the 2010 International Telemetry Conference at which a paper was presented by Expert.
