Ken holds a US Patent #7577116 relating to the development of a TDMA communications waveform over a satellite link.

Ryan is Ken’s teenage son.  Ryan’s interest in karate was the reason why the first two educational Android applications (UMACquiz and UMACapp) were produced for his karate school; the United Martial Arts Center in Victor, NY.  Ryan enjoys acting in a test engineering capacity and ensures that our products maintain a “youthful” look and feel!
