David has been working in Product Management the past 12 years with GE primarily focused on standard form factors (PICMG and VITA) using Freescale and Intel technologies. Current efforts are towards achieving the highest compute densities possible in these form factors while continuing to recognize the need to address Swap (Size, Weight and Power) 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 the OpenVPX effort. David has a BS from Athens State University and a MS from Southeastern Institute of Technology.
