PLUTRONUS is a career electronic and computer engineer. He holds a B.S. in Computer Engineering, with sub-major focus in solid-state physics, hardware electronic design and machine-state analysis along with software (device) programming. He is fluent in ForTran, Assembler (7 platforms), ‘C’, Pascal, Delphi (RAD), Python and MatLab (mathematics language). He continues his academic education via college extension courses as interest arises. His studies have included: Primate Behavior, Homo-sapiens Pre-History Anthropology, Meteorology (study of environment), Metrology (study of instrumentation) and recently ancient Human history along with ancient Ezra and Sinatic Hebrew.
Primarily a military hardware (electronics) and embedded microcomputer software engineer, Plutronus has worked for numerous military engineering companies, which have included: Rockwell Space Systems Div, Hughes Aircraft Advanced RADAR Electronics Design Laboratory (Santa Fe), Perkin-Elmer, California Microwave, AeroJet General, Rocketdyne (Space Shuttle Main Engine),and I worked recently for ITT Aerospace Communications Division (GNSS Military GPS group).
Early in his career, Plutronus was a computer engineer working in the newly evolving microcomputer industry. He worked in various capacities in that period, initially as a digital electronics logic design engineer for the world’s first scientific data-acquisition microcomputer company. In another company,
Plutronus through promotions over a four year period held the well paid position of ‘Engineering Manager’ for the company that invented the in-store pharmacy computer market. Plutronus designed the company’s products (pre-Apple, pre-IBM).
In the mid 1980s ~ 1990s 12yrs, Plutronus was a 1/3 partner in a Forbes 100 List rated scientific military research company. Principally DoD and DARPA research contractors, all the work performed were classified. In that capacity Plutronus and his partners worked on dozens of military research programs located on military facilities around the US. Some of their contracts involved nuclear weapon systems, directed-energy-weapon systems development, and nuclear first strike systems, etcetera. A few of the more interesting contract locations included Nellis Airforce Base (A51), Argonne National Laboratory (Id), Los Alamos National Laboratory (Az), LMTA, Santa Susana Field Laboratory (Warner Ca), Phillips Laboratory (Oh), and other places that he would “havta shoot ya if I toldya”.
