After working for some years in nuclear physics and medical electronics, I joined the Finnish Defense Forces in 1985. I was involved in a range of military electronics programs including C4I, radar systems, electro-optical equipment, EW, fire control, meteorological systems, and training simulators. In addition I took part in Nordic defense material cooperation and national security of supply. I retired as Colonel (Eng.) in 2006.
After retirement I set up the company and run seminars. Lately however I have worked mainly with simulation, computer security, and been busy maintaining our house. I am married with an adult daughter and speak English, German, Swedish, and Finnish; and member of the Association of Old Crows and Finnish professional societies.
