Meet the Author

The author is a retired US Air Force lieutenant colonel and retired US Air Force civil servant. He was a USAF detachment commander, munitions supply officer, nuclear ordnance supply officer, foreign security assistance manager (foreign military sales) over several North African countries, then spent his last 30 years with acquisition logistics and program manager. He had some part in planning most of the new weapons systems that started development during the President Reagan military buildup that brought down the Berlin Wall. He worked on new aircraft, space systems, missile systems, munitions, and new electronics systems research and development. He was a guest lecturer for the Air Force Institute of Technology from 1979 to 1989. During those years with AFIT he worked with many of the graduate students helping them develop their graduate research papers. He reviewed nearly all the ideas for new systems during those years. The most unclassified and public innovations he had a major hand in were: bringing computers into the office environment, and the global positioning system. One of his ideas was the development of remotely pilots air vehicles like Global Hawk and Predator drones that use the GPS for much of their guidance.
