    --------------------DETAILED PROFILE FOLLOWS ----------------

    PROFILE
    Mr. R. completed his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Toronto. He completed his Bachelors degree in 1983 and proceeded directly to the Masters program which he completed in 1985 with a thesis in flight simulation. Directly upon obtaining his Masters degree he accepted a position as Engineer with The Boeing Company in Philadelphia working on the V-22 Osprey Tiltrotor Aircraft. As one of only a select few Canadians working on this Department of Defense program, Mr. R. was assigned to the Flying Qualities group where he helped design the aircraft flight control system. Also involved in Wind Tunnel testing for the aircraft, he was quickly promoted to Senior Engineer and assigned to Flight Test. In this capacity he developed the flight test procedures for the aircraft flight control system and was responsible for leading this phase of testing on the “Iron Bird”. He was also responsible for performing analyses and simulations to predict aircraft flight characteristics prior to first flight and was later a key member of the First Flight Team assigned to perform in-flight tests at the company facility in Fort Worth, Texas. Mr. R. left The Boeing Company in 1988 to join Spar Aerospace Ltd. to work on the Canadian Space Program. He was assigned to the Controls and Analysis Group and later the Systems Engineering Group where, as a Senior Engineer, he developed the performance requirements for the Space Station Remote Manipulator System and the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator which were being developed as the primary robotic systems for on-orbit operations. In this capacity he liaised directly with the Canadian Space Agency and NASA in order to develop and negotiate the System Requirements Specifications. As a recognized robotics expert he accepted an assignment to Houston, Texas, in 1998 to join a two-member team assisting The Boeing Company to integrate the Canadian and U.S. elements of the Space Station. In this capacity he represented Boeing and was required to provide technical solutions to NASA and the Canadian Space Agency for any robotic integration issues. One of his first assignments was to conduct an audit and assessment of NASA’s Robotic System Evaluation Laboratory (RSEL) which was used to predict the on-orbit performance of the Space Station robotic systems and to train astronauts for robotic missions. The audit culminated in his preparing a report outlining the performance limitations, errors and changes required to obtain higher fidelity performance in the laboratory. Additionally, he interfaced with the Astronauts in order to develop and assess new Space hardware. During this assignment Mr. R. was designated the Certificate of Flight Readiness (CoFR) robotics representative for Boeing and was responsible for liaising directly with NASA to provide all required analyses and documentation prior to launch. He was also involved in integrating the U.S. elements of the Space Station, including reviewing cargo manifests and conducting integration tests. His technical and management skills were widely recognized at both Boeing and NASA, as attested to by the various awards and commendations, and he was promoted to Staff Engineer in 2000. After supporting the Boeing Extra Vehicular and Crew Systems (EV&CS) contract directly for two years, Mr. R. was able to obtain a renewal for the contract for an amount six times greater than the initial award and was then asked to also manage the contract in addition to providing technical guidance to other engineers. He was also asked to assume responsibility for another contract, the Boeing Rapid Response Contract, which was designed to enable Boeing to provide fast track solutions for technical issues identified by NASA. The responsibilities involved in managing these contracts included tasking, tracking spending, preparing monthly program reviews for upper management, working with finance to determine appropriate labor rates, and liaising with the customer to ensure satisfaction, identify new issues, and negotiate contract renewals. In 2003 Mr. R. was asked to assume a business development role for MD Robotics in Houston and was designated Business Development Specialist. His first assignment was to secure a General Services Administration (GSA) contract for Information Technology (IT) Services with the U.S. Government and he did this in record time. Securing this contract positively impacted the company’s competitive position for IT services. He was also asked to assume responsibility for the company’s existing Engineering Services GSA contract. In this capacity he was required to liaise with the government representatives in order to modify the contracts and provide necessary periodic contract value reporting. Mr. R. has significant experience with the preparation of proposals and development of winning proposal and teaming strategies. These winning proposal and teaming strategies involved performing assessments of the potential customers (requirements, needs, biases and satisfaction with existing contractors), determining the strengths and weaknesses of competitors, identifying product and service discriminators, leveraging past performance, and implementing complementary teaming arrangements to provide a “cost effective best value” approach to providing products and services. Mr. R.’s business development role has given him an in-depth knowledge of and familiarity with Industry and Government operations. Mr. R. joined Alcatel Transport Solutions Division (now Thales Rail Signalling Solutions Incorporated) in January 2005 where, as the Project Manager – Procurement for the Jubilee and Northern Lines Upgrade Project (London Underground), he was responsible for planning and executing the procurement of all materials, coordinating the manufacturing of the assemblies, and ensuring that the delivery schedule was achieved. His duties consisted of ensuring that the cost and schedule aspects of the technical design met the program requirements and completion dates, resolution of technical and programmatic issues, monitoring the project risk management log, coordinating delivery schedules, reviewing and addressing project correspondence, and maintaining delivery schedules. In February 2007, Mr. R. joined COM DEV Space Systems as a Senior Program Manager where he prepared the proposal for a high profile program intended for European use. Upon securing the contract he was then tasked with managing the project. He was also involved in a variety of proposal activities and led the winning proposal for a major $75M Canadian satellite program. His main duties consisted of day to day management of the program team, procurement activities, and customer management. Mr. R. rejoined Thales Rail Signalling Solutions Inc. as a Project Manager in July 2008 and was tasked to manage a $20M railway yard expansion for the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This project involved extensive interaction with Bombardier Transportation and with the Malaysian operator, Rapid KL. Through this project he has obtained a unique perspective of the high expectations of the Malaysian ridership. With the project successfully in revenue operations in July 2010, Mr. R. accepted an interim assignment as the Project Manager for Thales’ newest and largest project – the New York City Transit Authority Flushing Line Modernization. This project is a Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) solution and is being run jointly with the company’s division in New York. The project required coordinating activities with a number of local U.S. installation and test subcontractors and is Thales’ flagship project which is anticipated to lead to a significant number of new contracts for modernization of the New York City transit system.
