As a consultant, I take on new work that is either short-term full-time, or longer-term part-time, off site.  Due to existing client relationships I will not accept full time employment or long-term contract work, nor will I accept work that must be performed primarily on-site.

For infra-red optic manufacturing company, designed, programmed and built  embedded computer controlled motor drivers for several  zoom systems.   Made modifications for, wrote diagnostic code and built IR-based gas analyzer, including sensors designed to receive Factory Mutual approval.

For optical instrument distributor, wrote Virtual Instrument for Electronic Autocollimators.  Designed and built measurement and control system for FEL laser with 30 kV isolation.  Designed and built video and e-beam control systems for FEL laser.  Designed and built lens cutting system.

For various Massachusetts railroads, performed railroad right-of-way vegetation management consulting, including presentations at public hearings.

A a principle in Deerfield Controls, developed and built an embedded computer controlled sluice gate for flow regulation.  Designed and built Doppler Ultrasonic flowmeter with embedded 16-bit processor and DSP chip.   Designed and built hydraulic test stand with real-time control via desktop computer  interface.  Wrote real-time control and signal processing algorithms for desktop, embedded  computer and DSP environments.  Built miscellaneous analog and digital interface circuits. Wrote and tested computer models for physics of gate operation. Wrote, applied for and was awarded patent for Level Control Gate.

For a company working in the radome and MEMs fields, designed and built Test Systems and High Voltage MEMs driver circuits.

For private inventor, developed and built electronics for a pressure and airflow based medical device.
