Experience Highlights

 

Bruce Raymond has over thirty years experience in engineering and business. He started Raymond Technical Services in January 2005. It provides engineering consulting and prototype design, fabrication, and testing services along with software design, development, and testing. He has a proven history of problem solving and troubleshooting.

 

In 2005 RTS won a $3.5 million Air Force contract to assess the effects of directed energy weapons on fly-by-wire flight control systems. Part of the contract was to provide technical oversight and coordination of the efforts of ten subcontractors designing and providing prototype optical hardware. RTS then integrated and tested the experimental test setup at NASA and two Air Force locations. The contract was completed on time and within budget. RTS has a DCAA-approved accounting system.

 

RTS is currently producing software for Agilent for use with their latest spectrum analyzer and digital oscilloscope offerings. The software is written in C#/.NET and runs on both PCs and inside of the test instruments. The intended market is users and producers of military and commercial radar equipment.
