Feraidoon Zahiri, Engineer at the US Air Force, received his Master of Science degree in Engineering Mechanics from Penn State University. He has more than 20 years of experience in technology research, development, and transition in numerous scientific and engineering disciplines. He has overseen large-scale decision-support projects incorporating analytics, simulation, and visualization for resource allocation, system troubleshooting and repair, and data-driven predictive maintenance. He was selected as a winner of the Small Business Technology Council’s (SBTC) 2017 "Champion of Small Business Technology Commercialization" Award, for his role in filling a critical technology gap in the Air Force Sustainment community. He has played a critical role in providing opportunities for small business to promote the technology across all DoD services, boosting their technology transition even further. He has been instrumental in testing and transitioning new technologies developed through the CTMA (Commercial Technologies for Maintenance Activities) program for the past several years including a new advanced ATE (Automated Test Equipment) for testing electrical subsystems and more recently, the application of a new Voice-enabled Inspection System, VIMS (winner of the 2016 CTMA Partners Technology Challenge).
