Management Team

Harry R. Anderson, Ph.D., P.E.

Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Anderson founded EDX Engineering, Inc. in 1985 to produce software for designing and planning wireless communications networks. Through EDX, he pioneered the use of ray-tracing radio propagation models for broadband wireless systems design.  Prior to EDX Engineering, Dr. Anderson performed a variety of consulting and research activities through H.R. Anderson and Associates, including the development of advanced physical propagation models for VHF, UHF, and microwave frequencies. Dr. Anderson began his career in 1972 with Hammett & Edison, Inc., and then with Harris Corporation. His activities with both organizations encompassed the planning of radio systems, characterization of radio-wave propagation, and the development and automation of propagation prediction and engineering studies. Dr. Anderson also formed PHYwave, Inc. in 2000, to pursue a variety of technology-related activities, and continues that endeavor.  Author of more than 40 papers published in IEEE Transactions and other journals, Dr. Anderson has twice won IEEE Transactions’ Best Paper of the Year Award. He is the author of the reference text "Fixed Broadband Wireless System Design" published by John Wiley & Sons in 2003. Dr. Anderson was awarded the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Bristol, U.K., received the M.S.E.E. degree from Oregon State University, and the B.S.E.E. from the University of California. He is a Registered Professional Engineer in California and Oregon.

Mr. Hicks earned the B.S. degree in speech and physics from the University of Oregon.

 

Scott A. Blumberg, Ph.D.

Executive Director of Software Development. Dr. Blumberg is responsible for all aspects of software architecture and programming. Dr. Blumberg retains special skills in numerical methods and graphics programming. Dr. Blumberg, who joined EDX in 1998, has held a variety of research and software development positions since 1973, including roles at Hewlett Packard, Stanford Research Institute, Perkin Elmer, Signetics, and Fairchild Semiconductor. Prior to EDX, he worked in Symantec's project management organization. Dr. Blumberg's research led to his developing new computational methods for solving quantum mechanical problems in amorphous solids, and solutions to Schrödinger's equation employing supercomputers using sparse matrix methods, Gaussian quadrature, and orthogonal polynomials. He attended Cambridge University as a visiting scholar, and was conferred a Battelle Energy Research Fellowship. Dr. Blumberg was awarded the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Oregon, and earned the B.A. in physics at Harvard College.
