ISE - Our Team

Dr. Marc M. Cohen
Architect P.C.

Mr. Anthony Lai  a graduate of UCLA University of California, the US, brings to ISE his extensive expertise in large-scale and complex project development, technology transition, and system engineering in addition to ample expertise in radiation analyses, design, testing and integration of payloads into various satellite and space platforms.

During his tenure in the space industry, Mr. Lai leads radiation analyses, design, testing, integration of payloads into various satellite or space platforms for governments around the world such as TacSat-3, FalconSat-5, ORS-1, Orbital Express, Spirit and Opportunity rovers as well as commercial satellite constellations such as the Orbcomm Generation 2 satellite RF payload.

Specifically, he exceeds in project management and providing expertise in technology transition and manufacturability of the optimal solutions for the projects, using his extensive expertise in component and system engineering for military platforms such as air platforms, missiles and ground vehicles, Naval vessels, and space-based satellites. While at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Mr. Lai successfully managed the integration of instruments for the Mars Rover programs, which included qualification and selection of various devices for use on the Spirit and Opportunity rovers. At POC, one of his key roles is leading technology transition for various SBIR projects, including transition of the DRR (data loader) for the F-15 Suite-9 upgrade to the Air Force and transition of the Digital Data Set (DDS) for the T-45, the Data Transfer Unit for the V-22 and F-18, and the Advanced Data Transfer System (ADTS) for common helicopter platforms to Navy PMA-299. Under his leadership, POC is currently in multi-year full-rate production of the T-45 DDS, V-22 DTU, and MH-60R/S, CH-53K, CRH, and H-1Y/Z common ADTS kit systems for various military deployments, as well as LRIP of the other aforementioned projects. Mr. Lai was the project lead for SASHA Phase I and Phase II. Mr. Lai not only has unique experience and expertise to manufacture products developed from SBIR technologies, but he is also directly responsible for shipping hundreds of DDS, Sikorsky, and Data Loaders. Mr. Lai earned his B.S.E.E. from the University of California, Irvine, in 1993 and his M.S.E.E. from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1995. He is a U.S. citizen and holds an active Secret clearance with COMSEC training.
