Orange County Consultants Network Meeting Recap – September 22nd, 2012

For those that have missed our monthly meeting in September at Cal State Fullerton, we’ve had a wonderful guest speaker named Kip Haggerty who gave a presentation titled “Being an Engineering Consultant – What it Takes”.

Dr. Kip Haggerty’s bio is posted below. His presentation and handouts can be found on his website at:

Kip Haggerty, Ph.D., P.E. has over 32 years of experience in control, communication, and sensor systems engineering.  He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1988.

Since 1994, he has been the principal systems engineer of H&A Systems Engineering, where he leads the control, communication, and sensor systems engineering consulting portion of the business.  His consulting work has covered systems issues in advanced airborne radar, electronic warfare, power electronics, active RFID location, and breathalyzer sobriety monitoring.

From 1980 to 1994, he was an engineer at Hughes Aircraft Company, El Segundo, CA.  His systems engineering experience at Hughes covered a broad range of sensor and communication technologies as well as control and signal processing algorithms.  He developed, simulated, and analyzed avionic system concepts that included spread spectrum data communications, radar, and air traffic control communications.  He also led a cooperative engagement system concept study. For radar systems, he participated in a demonstration of the first high resolution radar range profiles from a new waveform and he designed, simulated, analyzed, and verified radar signal processing, tracking, and calibration algorithms.

Dr. Haggerty is a senior member of IEEE and a member of Tau Beta Pi.  He is a licensed electrical and control systems engineer in the state of California.  He has five published papers, taught two short courses on Kalman Filtering, and has given numerous presentations.
