Technical expertise

When working on a client’s R&D proposal, I review the client’s innovation for technical credibility and potential ‘show-stopper’ issues. This review is based on my technical background, particularly for sensor system applications and sensor technology development. Some of my sensor work involved Collision Warning systems for vehicles, which was a precursor to current Driverless Vehicle development. The table below is a summary of my sensor system experience where I was the Principal Investigator (PI) with a support staff.

Sensor System/Technology and Applications

  1. Imaging, Visible—Collision Warning (Prototypes: Cars, Busses), Warning Algorithms, Driver-Machine Interfaces, Driver Training Simulator, Computer Simulation, (SBIR, Phase II, Tibbetts Award)
  2. Laser, Visible—Roadway surface condition measurement (R&D) (SBIR, Phase II)
  3. Fiber Optics—Detection of moisture in concrete (R&D)
  4. Infrared Bolometer—Ambient temperature detector technology (R&D)
  5. Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW)—Visible wavefront sensor (R&D: Adaptive Optics), Contactless characterization (R&D: Semiconductors)
  6. Magnetometer—Vehicle detection (R&D)
  7. Micro Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS)—Vibration/temperature (R&D: Gas Turbine Engines) (SBIR, two Phase Is)

About Dr. Everson

Prior to forming this SBIR consultant practice, Dr. Jeffrey Everson was director of business development for QinetiQ North America’s Technology Solutions Group (previously Foster-Miller, Inc.).

Dr. Everson has won and been the principal investigator for several SBIR programs, including a Phase I program for NASA, a Phase I project for the U.S. Air Force, and Phase I and II contracts from the U.S. Department of Transportation. For the Phase II program, he received a Tibbetts Award for exemplifying the best in SBIR achievement.

Previously Dr. Everson held senior scientist positions at Battelle Memorial Institute, The Analytic Sciences Corporation (TASC), Honeywell Electro Optics Systems Division, and Itek Optical Systems Division.

He holds a PhD in physics from Boston College and a MS/BS in physics from Northeastern University.
