What Client’s Say
Curiosity’s mission is to get Mars to give up its secrets. But we can’t get to Mars without companies like Kegman who contribute technology, innovation, component parts, and know-how to the project.
Please allow me a moment of your time to tell you what an extreme pleasure it has been these past several months to work with your technicians on the ULA Delta IV program.
As my last assignment for ULA, before an early retirement, I was asked to design and, with the help of Chad Blank and Carlos Calix, install a new HDTV capable CATV system within the Delta IV DOC; a system covering office spaces on seven floors and all three control centers within the building. This new CATV system in the DOC is now 95% complete with only minor cleanup work left to do. And it has been performance demonstrated to show that it exceeds all expectations, thanks in no small part to the quality work of Chad and Carlos, who, may I add, are two of the nicest and most pleasant individuals it has been my pleasure to work with.
Please also allow me to thank Jason Doudna for his skill in creating and maintaining the drawings required for this effort. The quality of his work and his positive attitude serve him well.
Again, my thanks to you for their superior support in making this project a total success.
It has been a pleasure to work with Kegman on the installation project performed at Complex 37 on CCAFS. You have provided highly trained and experienced personnel who have performed the work in a professional manner. Because of their efforts, schedules have been met, and work performed efficiently and with quality.
I look forward to working together on future projects and am happy to recommend Kegman to anyone who wants quality electronic equipment installation/maintenance services.
Command Technologies, Inc. (CTI) has twice employed the services of Kegman to install high-speed video, voice, and data collection components at two space launch complexes on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS). On both occasions they responded to our installation requirements by providing prompt and reliable services in a highly professional manner. CTI expects to be engaged in similar installation activities over the coming months at both Kennedy Space Center and CCAFS. I fully expect to again use Kegman’s services as we satisfy the requirements of these contracts.
“Over the course of four months, Mr. Abt designed and integrated a one-of-a-kind wireless ad-hoc mesh communication network integrating four independent communications technologies. This was the first time these disparate technologies have been integrated. The technologies consisted of acoustic communication modems, six Wave Relay RF nodes (integrated into UAV, USV, and AUV), and two SATCOM networks all secured with 256K NSA suite B encryption.”
