Subject Matter Expert, Laser Systems, U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Armaments Center

I am a subject matter expert at the U.S. Army CCDC Armaments Center, located in Picatinny Arsenal, NJ. I specialize in high-power laser systems for use in directed energy, ignition of energetics, and biomedical technologies. I hold multiple patents in laser technology, optical microwave based medical diagnostics, and other applications merging optics, electronics, and mechanical systems. I also support the U.S. Army through research and development, system demonstration, and pre-production manufacturing concepts. My current research effort is in microlaser miniaturization as a HERO safe alternative primer for the M230, 30-mm cartridge ammunition and novel ignition alternatives, such as a radio frequency (microwave) ignition for future artillery systems.
