Richard S. Haendel
Inventor, data link engineer, communication systems analyst. Designed transmitters and receivers that operate from HF- through L-band. Designed receivers and specialized transmitters for multiple Government agencies.
Relevant Experience and Background
Mr. Haendel was the Senior Technologist for Communications for the Advanced Technology Center at Rockwell Collins. He is a systems and RF engineer, and contributed to the development of TTNT, TCAS, ADS-B, SATCOM and In-Flight Network.
His accomplishments during his tenure at Rockwell Collins include:
- Design of ARN-144, ARN-147, ARN-153, DF-206 receivers.
- Aircraft co-site interference studies and resolution.
- Co-inventor of TTNT Tactical Targeting Network technology, providing airborne anti-jam anti spoof high speed work with 2 millisecond latency for USAF and DARPA.
- Developed Satellite Weather Information System to support transoceanic aircraft with real time weather. Tested in revenue service on American Airlines.
- Designed GPS local area augmentation system ground station for GPS correction data to provide CAT II landing capability at small airports.
- Designed TCAS receiver, VHF communication transceiver.
- Supported Small Aircraft Transportation System (NASA-FAA) for improvements in safety for small aircraft. Leader of AGATE (NASA-FAA) Datalink committee.
- Designed high speed air-to-ground communications data link for commercial aircraft.
- Supported RTCA industry committees, including SC-169 and SC-172 VHF data link committee.
Mr. Haendel was the architect of several military communications systems including the JTIDS Class 2 receiver/transmitter and the Modular Integrated Nav-Com System (MINCS). He was the Technical Director for the ICNIA program which developed the initial RF hardware and system design for the Air Force F-22 aircraft avionics.
Mr. Haendel was a Collins instructor. He taught classes in RF engineering. Topics include radio propagation, noise and circuit design. He has taught more than 700 individuals.
He has provided consulting analysis and design for NASA, DARPA, Shafer Corporation (MA) and Rockwell Collins.
