RESUME OF Gary D. Edwards
21237 Irish Road   Goodrich,  Michigan  48439
W 810-636-4330
Top Secret /SSBI / SCI Security Clearance W/ full scope polygraph


OBJECTIVE Permanent position in the Electromagnetic or Antenna industry, with a company that recognizes my technical abilities, has room for growth and rewards dedicated employees.
EDUCATION Masters degree Physics  1986, Ohio State University
Concentration on Electromagnetics and Electro-Optics   GPA 3.9
Bachelors degree Electrical Engineering 1981, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Concentration on Antenna Theory and Design GPA 4.0
SUMMARY Electrical engineering experience on Low Observable programs and structures
Hardware testing of Radar Absorbing Materials (RAM), Radar Absorbing Structures(RAS), Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS Systems)
Radar Cross Section data analysis
Antenna Design for defense and commercial satellite, cellular GPS and wireless technologies, to include underwater, miniature, smart & airborne applications. Designs include, but are not limited to: Spherical, Reflectors, Horns, Phased Arrays, Patches, Fractal, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) (GNSS) and Flat Panels.
Antenna test and measurement experience in a variety of RCS test ranges & anechoic chambers. Farfield / Nearfield ranges
Method Of Moments and Physical Optics (PO) codes with 3D and 2D models
Development of airframe structures
Working with microstrip patch antennas and other printed circuit antennas.  I developed an analysis code to predict the performance of microstrip fed slot antennas(using MOM).
HFSS expert, vs #10
Carlos , X-Patch, MoM expert
Anechoic chamber and open air RCS test range background. Chamber design, layout and test experience, absorber design.
RF Circuit design experience, Low power RF circuit design, VCO, receiver, amplifier, LNA design, PLL’s, RF filters, modulation and demodulation,Analog design of high speed A/D, Digital Signal Processing.I performed numerical modeling using NEC Code to do both RCS prediction and antenna performance analysis. I also spent some time developing code to model reflector antenna performance.  This involved using GTD to predict the antennas aperturedistribution in the near field and transforming to the far field (spherical near filed to far field).  I also supported an improvement program at the Bistatic RCS measurementfacility.
I was involved in numerous Antenna modeling and measurement programs. In short almost every effort I was involved in at MIT Lincoln Lab was tied to antennas/ RCS work   I  was responsible for implementing the numerical RCS and antenna capabilities in our Group.
My antenna experience and systems knowledge were utilized by a group working with high dynamic range fiber optic links.  I ran numerous filed experiments using Aircraft to collect the propagation data.  Field experiments were also run aimed at determining the reflectivity of clutter environments. In short almost every effort I was involved in at MIT Lincoln Lab was tied to Antennas / RCS work .
Experience working in the Automotive, Aerospace, Satellite communications, Cellular and wireless industries designing Antennas, and RF hardware to include Remote Keyless Entry (RKE), Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) & Passive Entry Passive Start (PEPS) systems, also know as Remote Starters.
