He has made seminal contributions to unmanned undersea vehicles, vertical flight aircraft, military jet engines, propulsion and alternative energy systems. As CEO, he oversaw a $6M funded R&D investment  from a Fortune 5 company on a  collaborative effort to develop an Underwater Data Center system architecture, advanced cooling and renewable power schemes. Acted as Project lead having developed the key patents and system architecture. Successfully designing, integrating, deploying and run for several months off the coast of California. As CTO of a renewable energy company Alex was able to garner 8 DOE awards totaling over $22M USD as Principal Investigator as well as leading the technical due diligence effort for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Investment. In 2003, Alex became Lockheed Martin/Perry Technologies’ youngest Staff Mechanical Engineer and led the $6.5 million Advanced Development Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) Project, as well as the $2 million UUV test bed, with a team of 10 engineers responsible for technical, budget and schedule oversight; this work included novel manufacturing (Titanium Rapid Casting Pressure Vessels), engineering processes, computer-aided engineering (CAE) tool development, ballast design, thermal management, acoustic treatments, configuration management, propulsive design, energy sources, and modular instrumentation packages. Under both academic and research scholarships Alex performed research at Georgia Tech Research Institute’s Aeronautical Lab and NASA Ames while studying Aerospace Engineering. Alex has an MBA from Carnegie Mellon sponsored by Lockheed Martin.
