I’ve known Rob for many years. He has always impressed me with not only his technical knowledge and leadership, but in his ability to synthesize complex issues into practical knowledge as well as his adaptability to expanding challenges within the high-reliability semiconductor industry. His recent work on COTS for space has demonstrated his ability to cross from COTS to automotive to space seamlessly with tremendous cross-fertilization. I’d highly recommend Rob as a consultant in particular as the Mil/Aero/Automotive are facing crossroads for safety critical issues and future aerospace/avionics approaches.
