He formed his own company, integrated scientific systems, and for more than 10 years provided direct on site real time support for all submarines in the Atlantic fleet, designed and developed analysis work for all submarines in the Pacific fleet. His work was also the focus of SATO treaty relations with the Royal Australian Navy.

His work, spanning more than 25 years, involved him at the highest levels of the US Navy from Secretary of the Navy to Torpedo man, working in forward torpedo rooms. His expertise in systems analysis, weapon systems and instrumented tracking systems or reconstruction of exercise beneath the North Pole ice caps was termed by the Royal Australian Navy as being the best kept secret in the US Navy.
