Matt Janikula is a physicist working on technical sustainment and engineering efforts for the U.S. Air Force. His specialty is electrical subsystems. In this role, Matt has traveled around the U.S. and to the Middle East to support various Aviation Command and Control projects, directly interfacing with and supporting Airmen in their efforts to monitor and control aircraft around the world.
Matt once designed an antenna array and acted as one of the primary engineers for a mobile radio site that had some troublesome installation barriers. Months later, Matt was discussing radio and subsystem priorities with the client, who mentioned the specific radios Matt had helped design and install. “Those radios are a high priority,” said the client. “They are the clearest radios we have.”
It was an indication of the importance the work of Booz Allen scientists and engineers. “It was just a comment in passing,” says Matt, “but it meant more than any award I’ve received.”
