Director of Systems Engineering
Mr. McClary has over 40 years experience developing safety-critical, avionics systems and software. He provided technical guidance for several full life-cycle developments to DO178B and DO254 standards through the phases of concept development, prototype development, full-scale development, transition to production and field support. Programs include man-rated spacecraft, supersonic fighter, military helicopter, military transport aircraft, commuter/regional jet and commercial airliner developments. He provided program direction and technical leadership on programs ranging up to $50M development funding and 150 engineers.
Mr. McClary applied DO178B compliant processes to software developments through criticality Level A. He provided technical leadership for the development of inertial, air data and flight control sensor architectures in commercial air transport aircraft, including Boeing 757/767, Airbus A320, Boeing 777, Airbus A380 and Boeing 787. Having developed redundant, fault-tolerant architectures for a wide range of commercial air transport aircraft, he holds two patents in the area of redundant system architectures.
Mr. McClary provided specifications and application engineering for state-of-the-art sensors such as Ring Laser gyros, quartz rate and acceleration sensors and MEMS-based inertial sensors. He holds a patent in the area of MEMS-based inertial sensors.
Mr. McClary participated in ARINC and Military standards development in the areas of Inertial Reference Systems and Digital Data Buses. He authored several papers in the areas of fault-tolerant avionics and data bus architectures and presented them at industry symposiums.
Mr. McClary received a BSEE (Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering) from the University of Minnesota, Institute of Technology. He is a Licensed Professional Engineer (P.E.).
