David J. Buscher
Chief Operating Officer
Prior to Redox, Dave had a distinguished engineering career that began at the Harry Diamond Laboratories (HDL) with a civilian tour in Vietnam assigned to United States Army Science Advisors Office. He was instrumental in bringing computer aided design and manufacturing techniques to HDL and was the principal inventor of a Revenue Metering System for power companies and a Multi-axis Laser Scanner and Binary Integrator for fixed cell radar alarm data. He later joined the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory where he was involved in myriad aspects of radar and command and control development, installation, test and operation. During this period he also created and taught Technical Management and Systems Engineering courses in the JHU Whiting School of Engineering. In 1996, Dave co-founded Solipsys Corporation where he served as vice president of operations. Following the sale of Solipsys to the Raytheon Company in 2003, he then went on to form several successful businesses.
