NORRISTOWN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LCR Embedded Systems today announced the addition of research and development activities to its already impressive portfolio of capabilities, which also include engineering design, program management, system integration, and manufacture and testing. The company’s R&D team has been charged with investigating topics of pressing concern to the aerospace/defense, commercial, and rugged industrial markets, such as advanced thermal management, active and passive electromagnetic shielding, rugged design, advanced manufacturing and composites, waste energy harvesting, and unmanned vehicle systems and pods.
Members of the team include Eyal Fuhrer as R&D Manager, an entrepreneur with 13 years of multidisciplinary experience who obtained his BS in Electrical and Nuclear Engineering from Ben Gurion University and his MS in Biomedical Engineering and Management from Drexel University, and Marketing Manager Janis Cortese, a 20-year veteran of high-tech marketing who obtained her BS degrees in Physics and Astronomy from Penn State University as a Teas Scholar where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa, and her MS in Physics from the University of California at Irvine.
“We’re fortunate as a company to have graduate-level research experience in multiple functional areas, and we’re very excited to put that to use investigating various blue-sky topics of interest to our customers and markets,” states LCR Embedded Systems President David Pearson. “After all, such experience is a real distinguisher for LCR Embedded Systems, and we’re eager to capitalize on it so that we can offer even more value to our customers.”
The team has been consulting together for some time, weighing the value of various research topics to determine which ones stand the best chance of practical benefit. As a result, they have narrowed their initial topics down to several particularly promising ones and have begun to develop a formal research plan and supporting processes.
