Mr. Brady is a managing officer and co-founder of Airfield Technology, a US company that designs and manufactures Flight Inspection Systems.
During his career Mr. Brady has specialized in the engineering fields of avionics, radio navigation aids, and flight inspection. In 1983 he received a degree in Electrical Engineering from Ohio University (BSEE, Cum Laude). While at the university he was awarded with membership in the Eta Kappa Nu and Tau Beta Pi engineering honor societies.
Following graduation Mr. Brady worked as an avionics design engineer at King Radio (now Honeywell-Bendix/King) before returning to Ohio University to lead the Instrument Landing System (ILS) research team at the Avionics Engineering Center. His principal efforts there included computer simulations to determine and mitigate the adverse effects of irregular terrain and signal reflecting objects on ILS. He was also lead engineer for the center’s flight inspection team, which was tasked with investigating and providing solutions for challenging ILS facilities for FAA. The group also provided flight inspection and evaluation services for various private companies.
Mr. Brady returned to industry in 1986 as a project engineer for Aviation Systems, Inc. There he was responsible for manufacturing and installation of flight inspection systems, design of ILS localizer and glide slope antenna distribution and monitoring systems, and evaluation of ILS and VOR installation requirements. He also served as senior project engineer in the company’s operations department, managing numerous navigation aid installation projects and leading the flight inspection operations group.
In 1991, Airfield Technology was founded by Mr. Brady and two colleagues. Since its launch, Airfield Technology has manufactured numerous Flight Inspection Systems for various customers, as well as providing navigation aid engineering and installation services at more than 100 facilities throughout the world.
