Mike has had a diverse and long history in the industrial alarm industry electrical technician and as an automobile mechanic. Along with this, he has worked as a lead field technician for a NASA Analogue Project at Pavilion Lake (www.pavilionlake.com), where his duties ranged from repairing underwater vehicles to scuba diving to designing and maintaining surface operations for the Project.
His combination of hands-on repair skills in a field setting makes Mike a perfect candidate to work in the UAV field. He understands the needs that being away from the base imposes on a technician; parts may need to be modified or scrounged to ensure that the operation continues. He understands the time component that field work places on the team. And that team work is essential to get the job done.
