About Us

RoboCom Technologies provides cutting-edge solutions in secure communications and networking, relying on substantial expertise in research, product development, and commercial deployment. As a nimble small business, we are efficient and driven to help you succeed. The systems that we create are used to support military and commercial network-centric operations. Our extensive experience in advanced networking algorithms, simulation, and real-time emulation drives innovative and proven networked communication solutions.

Why We Are Unique
Real World Experience

Few firms combine RoboCom's real world experience in developing and fielding real-time, low latency control applications on Linux desktop or embedded platforms, and advanced wireless communications and routing algorithms with the ability to create and evaluate simulation/emulation models. We have developed unique tools that can quickly solve development and integration issues.

Domain Expertise

We are unparalleled in network communication systems design. Furthermore, by combining state of-the-art communications systems design, modeling, simulation, real-time emulation, and implementation with a nimble business environment, we provide customers better support through the entire development and program execution process.

Example Programs

Example program experience includes:

  • EMANE networked waveform communications network emulation.
  • LTE Link Aggregation for increased wireless system bandwidth.
  • Navy Anti-Jam data collection radio network protocol stack.
  • RF Channel Controller for IP-based Flight Telemetry.
  • High-speed Data Visualization.
  • Cognitive Spectrum Management.
  • Air Defense System Networked Radio.
  • Commercial MANET Radio.
  • Commercial Document Imaging Enterprise Systems.

Ray started RoboCom in 2009 focused on development of networking software products and services using the experience gained from the development of a wide range of digital communications devices and systems.

Ray has held lead roles in the technical development of digital communications hardware with Cincinnati Electronics, Northrup Grumman Xetron, and Nova Engineering prior to RoboCom.

In the late 1990’s Ray developed the network protocol software for the NovaRoam radio which was the first commercial radio to employ IETF MANET standards based ad-hoc networking protocols.In addition to standards based networking protocols

Ray has developed custom protocols for networked radios. Ray developed a common code simulation architecture for networking protocol development which was highly successful.

Ray’s experience also includes waveform development for software defined radios, WNW, SRW and cognitive radio military waveforms.

At RoboCom, Ray has continued to play a key role in various projects including most recently, the development of the iNET Link Manager supporting the next generation of networking communications for military test ranges, and a channel access protocol to support Navy networked operations for an Anti-Jam data collection waveform.

Bob has over 33 years of system level design and software development experience.

Bob joined RoboCom starting with the design and development of the iNET Link Manager in 2011.

Prior to this, Bob was a software engineering consultant for more than a decade in various industries and disciplines. This included work for leak test instrument manufacturer Cincinnati Test Systems, for intelligent wireless spectrum developer Cognitive Radio Technologies, telecommunications giant L-3 Communications, Nova Engineering, Silicon Valley based cloud services company YouSendIt.com (now Hightail.com), Seattle based healthcare software technology corporation IDX Systems (now GE Healthcare), electronic medical records pioneer LanVision Inc. (now Streamline Health Solutions), Mercy Franciscan Hospital Family Practice's Medical Records department, and legacy computer server integration and connectivity leader Attachmate (acquired by MicroFocus).

Prior to becoming a software engineering and development consultant, Bob worked for decades as an employee for LanVision Inc. in Cincinnati, Ohio, Northrop Grumman Xetron in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Harris Corporation Government Aeropace Systems Division in Melbourne, Florida.

Bob has a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) with High Distinction from the University of Kentucky.

Michael has over 20 years of experience in technology development including over 15 years in networked wireless communications, electronics hardware and embedded software.

Before he joined the RoboCom team in 2012, Michael successfully managed tech business units, lead development teams and championed product deployments. As an entrepreneurial leader, he helped take a small high-tech company to a $45 million sale. Furthermore, he has directed successful product commercialization for several small and large businesses, including L-3 Communications and Nova Engineering.

With a focus on user experience, Michael has developed a variety of interfaces including browser-based GUIs for embedded radio systems with database backends. Prior experience includes industrial automation, robotic systems, machine-to-machine (M2M) networked communications, ad hoc mesh networking, RF test equipment, electric distribution automation, and electronic hardware manufacturing.  Michael was a voting member of the National Smart Grid Interoperability Panel.

Michael has Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) from University of Cincinnati.
