David has been working in Product Management the past 17 years with Abaco Systems (formerly GE Intelligent Platforms) primarily focused on standard form factors (CompactPCI, VME and VPX) using ARM, Freescale, Intel and Nvidia technologies. Current efforts are towards achieving the highest compute densities possible in these form factors while continuing to recognize the need to address SWAP-C (Size, Weight, Power and Cost) concerns of customers. Prior to GE David spent 19 years at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, most of that time as the Development Manager over the Spacelab Payload Crew Training Complex (HW and SW simulation). David is actively participating in OpenVPX and other Small Form Factor efforts such as VITA 75. David has a BS from Athens State University and a MS from Southeastern Institute of Technology.
