George initially worked at Hughes Aircraft Company, where he was a design contributor to the first domestic satellite telecommunications network in the United States (Westar) and first regional satellite network in Asia (Palapa).
He subsequently founded and managed an electronics product development and manufacturing business in the satellite telecom and public network fields (Sattel Technologies). Sattel was a prime contractor on the Palapa B2-R program that recovered a satellite from orbit using the NASA Space Shuttle, refurbished and re-launched it. Sattel had over $200 million worldwide sales.
As the Founder of Merlin Technologies (“Merlin”), George led a team of engineers that developed the first wide-area indoor/outdoor geo-location system, which significantly surpasses GPS in its capabilities. In particular, Merlin’s technology provides precise indoor tracking (which GPS does not) and cannot be jammed or spoofed (which can be done to GPS). Merlin exploits existing high-power commercial broadcast signals to locate persons and assets globally, both indoors and outdoors, irrespective of terrain and weather.
Specialties: RF design, digital telecommunications technologies, wireless networks, specialized modulation techniques and electronic product development, advanced geo-location products.
Education: Penn State University: BSEE, Electronic Engineering; Fairleigh Dickinson University: MBA, Finance; Southwestern University School of Law, JD.
