Dave was the "Responsible Engineer" on the Gaia VPU. He was the lead for all engineering aspects on the project. Dave has been at Astrium since 1975, and he has been working as a lead engineer on processor projects for the past 30 years. He has worked on far too many projects to mention, some military, notably Skynet 4 and Skynet 5, where he was responsible for a number of equipments.
On his retirement, starting today, Dave plans to play more golf, spend time in his garden, and (working with his daughter) take up a volunteer role supporting troubled children from his local area.
