|PGM Diversified Industries was founded in 1985 to provide consulting services to the legal profession and assist industry in applying innovative ideas that emanate from the academic community.
This work draws heavily from its solid engineering base and skills in engineering and physics, advanced automation sensors, software engineering, control systems, multimedia computers and electrical, electromechanical, and electronic technologies.
The firm's founders all participate in the work for its clients with practical, real-world experience. Their skills integrate a variety of technical disciplines. With strong ties to both the industrial and academic communities, the firm's managers and engineers draw upon ideas evolving from university laboratories, conferences, and industrial developments.
|Mr. Podanyreceived his undergraduate degree in physics from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. He has worked at CWRU as a staff engineer in the Electrical Engineering department doing near millimeter wave atmospheric propagation research. Mr. Podany also worked at the former NASA-Lewis Research Center as part of team developing terahertz high frequency electron tubes. A signficant portion of his work has involved computerized data acquisition and sensor development in harsh environments. A holder of one Canadian and two US patents involving industrial sensor and control systems Mr. Podany also is heavily involved with the development of 4D based systems for data acquisition and calibration applications on the Macintosh platform. His experience also encompasses lasers and optical systems, high voltage electrical systems, biomedical diagnostics, and computer networking. He is also the primary forensic engineer specializing in power systems, grounding, electrical contact and equipment failures.|
