I have worked for NOAA since 1989 as a Co-Op student. My background at NOAA started in Solar Radiometry, Observational Network Design and Installation, Field Deployment. Then I worked for the Profiler group for a few years doing Field Deployments.

In 1994 I started to work for the LIDAR Group Building Lidar Systems and Deploying them on Various platforms. I have worked on Doppler wind, Ozone, Water Vapor, Aerosol, Raman, Excimer, MOPA Lidar systems. Platforms include: Ships, Planes, Trucks, Ground Based, Sea Containers. My Favorites are NASA DC-8, 1942 DC-3, NOAA Twin Otter, DLR Falcon, NOAA RV Ronnald H Brown, NOAA RV Tommy Thompson, FLIP, and so many more...


Bachelor of Science Electrical Engineering NMSU 1992


Doppler Wind Lidar Integrated systems platform miniaturization and automation.
Ozone Lidar Data collection Automation.
Lidar systems Engineering ergonometrics and esoterics.

Current Topics

I have designed a Direct Drive Servo Scanner (DDSS2), single axis for the lidars and it is getting support to expand its applications. We are adding a slip ring for a second rotational axis, very exciting.
