Our Team

We are a small business and will stay a small business to continue to provide the rapid pace our industry demands.  When the scope of our projects demands it, we partner with other technology leaders to ensure our customers' needs are met and we deliver what we promise.

Craig Gallimore, Principal and Owner

I have been truly blessed in my professional career with driven, intelligent mentors and a breadth of technical exposure which rivals the full capability span of large prime contractors.

I completed my B.S. in mechanical engineering from University of California at Berkeley in 2007 and followed it with a M.S. from Virginia Tech in 2008. After school, I accepted a position in the Instrumentation and Advanced Capabilities Branch at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD).  While at NSWCDD, I served as the lead instrumentation engineer at the Weapon Dynamics Facility, Explosive Experimental Area, and Electromagnetic Launch Facility (Railgun).  I led teams of engineers and technicians to solve challenging structural and thermal dynamic issues, stand up new capabilities, and conduct lethality characterization, insensitive munition, and hazard classification testing on countless ground-based and aerospace experimental weapon platforms.

I have used transducers and data acquisition to validate engineered prototype designs in some of the harshest environments, including mitigation of electromagnetic interference created by the rapid discharge of millions of amps of electric current at Railgun.  Each environment presents unique challenges - from transportation vibration to ballistic impact.

In 2017, we moved to Denver and I became part of Lockheed Martin Space Advanced Payloads developing hardware for Electronically Steerable Arrays (ESA's).  I developed new tools and techniques for solder reliability to ensure our products met or exceeded customer requirements.

 

Developing tools for the DOD community - urgent operational needs - is my passion.  As a mechanical engineer in the NSWCDD Disruptive Technologies Branch (Asymmetric Weapons Defense), I supported programs whose direct support saved lives, the highlight of my career.  Warfighters typically need these tools yesterday, so my mission is to create an avenue for rapid innovation and deliver solutions as quickly as possible.

Angela Gallimore, PMP

Business Director

After completing my education in Mechanical Engineering from the University of South Carolina, I accepted a position in the Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) Defense Division at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD).  I worked as a project engineer supporting various shipboard integration, sustainment and testing efforts within the U.S. Navy's CBR Defense mission.  I completed a detail at the Pentagon supporting the Pentagon Force Protection Agency before starting my role as the lead onsite engineer for a $20M installation of Collective Protection on a US Navy ship.  This effort entailed several years of planning prior to the 10 month installation and testing period before getting the ship back to the fleet with additional critical CBR Defense capabilities.  

After successful completion of this installation, I transitioned to a program manager role for the Collective Protection System (CPS) Variable Speed Drive program.  In this role, I was responsible for modernizing the CPS on multiple ships to improve energy efficiency and provide a more sustainable system for the Warfighter.  

In 2017, I transitioned to the private industry and served as the Program Manager for the Research and Development Department as well as supported several Engineering contracts for a small business designing specialized LIDAR aircraft sensors. 

My passion lies with supporting the Warfighter and getting them the best technology so they are able to successfully and safely complete their mission.
