Includes the author's second group of five published technical papers by the AIAA aerospace and defense organization that explains why NASA, commercial and the U.S. military spacecraft and any large complex defense weapons fail prematurely at rates from 10% to 60% and why the U.S. military and the U.S. government refuses to require its space systems and weapons systems suppliers to produce and deliver systems that won't fail prematurely and how PHM technology was developed by the author to win funding for the GPS program that identifies equipment with premature aging that will fail premature with certainty for replacement at the factory before shipment to the customer and launch to space.

About the Author
Len's experience with communications theory occurred following his first graduation from college when he earned degrees in Physics and Mathematics simultaneously and then gained employment as an Electrical Engineer, designing, launching and controlling spacecraft for NASA and the U.S. Air Force. Academically, Len completed the requirements for three A.A. degrees, two B.S. degrees in Physics and Mathematics simultaneously, an M.A. degree and Ph.D in Electrical Engineering and an M.S. degree in Education. Professionally, Len is an award winning spacecraft designer and he designed and redesigned satellites and rockets for the military and NASA as well as other national and international civil, commercial and government organizations. Len's most important accomplishment professionally occurred when he was the Boeing GPS Space and Ground Systems Manager and won funding for the U.S. Air Force's Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite-based navigation system by the Department of Defense/Pentagon, replacing two existing low earth orbiting, satellite-based navigation systems in place by the U.S. Navy. Len has also been an executive at several aerospace and defense industry companies as well as telecommunications and computer manufacturing companies. His collaborations with counseling, psychologists and psychiatrists began in 1989 and continues today, working with holistic medicine practitioners and students and in the new field of predictive medicine (PHM). When the Canadian Space Agency's Predictive Medicine personnel requested he apply his proprietary, predictive algorithms to determine if he could predict which astronauts would become mentally ill on long duration space missions, he agreed to do it. research for the Canadian Space Agency was published at the 2013 IEEE/AIAA Aerospace Conference in Big Sky Montana and then a more complete paper was published in the Internet based, American Journal of Applied Psychology for free public access and to NASA Headquarters in 2013. Len's research triggered NASA to initiate a study to determine the long term degradation of astronauts by keeping an astronaut in space continuously for one year. Six female astronauts were immediately hired and augmented the many male astronauts because Len's research used one of NASA's female astronauts. The tremendous physical and mental degradation from the first astronaut in the study after just 10 months is planned to be released by NASA in 2018.
