Our Experience

Our team has led multiple successful New Product Development ventures in a broad spectrum of markets, technology and product domains, followed by successful product launch and transition to full-scale production. The PLTMS team has extensive experience guiding product development and re-positioning involving varied levels of technology, product and market risk strategies to include:

  • Improvements to existing Products
  • Addition to existing Product Lines
  • Designs for cost reduction
  • Establishment of New Product lines
  • Repositioning of product offerings
  • New-to-the world Products

Some examples of these very successful ventures, in the A&D, Telecommunication, and Automotive market spaces are provided below:

  • Introduction of broad-band, very high speed digital technology for product performance improvement and cost reduction in US Navy EW subsystems
  • Introduction new and innovative  Ball Grid Array packaging into U.S. Navy product inventory
  • Development and introduction of multiple  manufacturing processes into very high speed military electronics to reduce the cost of product manufacturing
  • Effective application of high-speed high gate count ASIC and FPGA technologies for increased functional density
  • Technology insertion and product expansions using state of the art embedded processor technologies to upgrade existing products to full autonomous / remote operations
  • Product line expansion and technology insertion in the Ground EW Counter RF Improvised Explosive Devices
  • Product expansion and technology insertion into Space Communication and Weather monitoring subsystems
  • Technology insertion and product development of microwave and fiber-optic, long haul communication and relay subsystems
