Exelis Engineer Inducted Into AOC Technology Hall Of Fame

Ken Frank, chief engineer within the Exelis ( NYSE:XLS) Electronic Systems division, is being inducted into the Association of Old Crows (AOC) Technology Hall of Fame at the 50th AOC Symposium and Convention in Washington, D.C., today.

The AOC is a global professional electronic warfare (EW) and information operations association that promotes electromagnetic spectrum operations and related military, civilian and commercial applications. The Technology Hall of Fame, established in 2001, recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves as innovators and have made significant contributions to the advancement of EW.

Frank began his career at Exelis in 1974 and has performed roles in hardware development as well as systems engineering on dozens of EW projects for a range of customers. His induction primarily stems from his role in the development of EW technology, the AN/ALQ-161A radar jammer in particular, which provides the U.S. Air Force’s B-1B Lancer aircraft with fully integrated 360-degree electronic protection. Frank has been involved with the AN/ALQ161A since the program’s inception.

“Ken Frank’s contributions to the electronic warfare programs at Exelis and to the EW field at large have been invaluable,” said Rich Sorelle, corporate vice president and president of the Electronic Systems division. “His dedication to the technology and to the needs of the warfighter has helped make Exelis the electronic warfare leader we are today.”

Frank works in the Exelis electronic attack and release systems business in Amityville, N.Y.
