Kevin Johnson is affiliated with Spectrum Engineering at AEC where he implements a broad range of hardware and software components for both ground and airborne data collection and flight referencing platforms. These platforms are then used to conduct research by evaluating communication, navigation or surveillance system signals by predicting, measuring, recording, and analyzing both simulated and actual RF effects upon the system’s signal quality.
Current research includes studying the effects of wind turbine farms upon FAA air traffic control radar installations and the ongoing prediction and measurement of RFI within frequency protected service volumes for ILS, VOR and Air-Ground Communication systems.
Previous research has involved MLS, ILS, Loran-C, DME and GPS navigation and landings systems or related models.
Having earned his B.S.E.E. from Ohio University in 1992, he is currently pursuing his M.S.E.E. degree. He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Eta Kappa Nu professional engineering society. Additionally, he is a corporate member of the Institute of Navigation, the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics, and the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA).
