Meet our Leadership
Empowering our team to make a difference and leading us in our shared mission of revolutionizing integration while advancing critical technologies and improving lives.
Chris Allport is a specialist in realizing concepts into advanced prototypes. He has a proven track record with numerous aspects of aerospace industry: from leading the development of standards to hands-on software development and integration. Throughout his professional career, Allport has been called upon to lend his expertise to myriad interoperability activities. In earlier years, these efforts were met with simple, point solutions, intended to solve the problem at hand. However, as the years have progressed and challenges have become more sophisticated, he has had to develop more sophisticated solutions to a variety of integration challenges. Allport earned a BS in Electrical Engineering, a BS in Computer Engineering, and an MS in Electrical Engineering from West Virginia University.
