Carl, a Civil Engineer II at Einhorn Engineering, designs, overseas fabrication, installs, and sea-tests components of company developed hardware, as well as preparing test plan and cruise report documents. He has been with the company since its founding in 2008 and served Einhorn Engineering prior to that as an independent contractor. His early career – following a B.S. degree in Agriculture (Cornell University – 1986), service with the U.S. Peace Corps in Ecuador, and a B.S. in Civil Engineering (Northeastern University – 1992) – was spent with the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory and Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center in Port Hueneme, California.
In addition to Einhorn Engineering’s focus on launch and recovery systems, Carl has supported the engineering development and at-sea operations of a variety of marine equipment. The most significant of these include the survivability testing – both the resistance to long term damage, such as seafloor abrasion, and the sudden impacts of anchors and fishing gear – of electro-optical-mechanical (EOM) and fiber optic (FO) cabling; remotely operated vehicle (ROV) operations and tool development – with a special focus on small diameter, fiber optic cable recovery and repair; and the U.S. Navy’s low frequency active (LFA) and compact low frequency active (CLFA) sonar systems.
