My expertise lies in government acquisition, systems engineering, and Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Combat Systems, and Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) missions, systems, and architectures; validating customer problems, developing solutions and capabilities, rapid prototyping, and measuring traction and growth. For startups interested in deciphering government and defense procurement processes, I can help you think through the acquisition process and find ways to partner with system integrators and respond to opportunities. We can discuss how to apply your technologies to government use cases to actionable next steps and drive towards product-(government)market fit
