About George M. Harris, P.E., Principal:
...
-In 1979, with experience in electromagnetics and Radio Frequency, (RF), networks gained in independent study at Standard Communications Corporation in Los Angeles, California while in College, George was hired after graduating from the University by Shively Laboratories, Inc. in Raymond, Maine.
-Responsibilities included design, testing and commissioning of high power RF broadcast antennas and military equipment, as well as other engineered RF products.
-In 1980, after a year at Shively Laboratories, George left to become special projects engineer for high power RF and microwave products at Dielectric Communications, (a unit of General Signal Corporation), and was in that capacity for two years.
-In November of 1982, George left Dielectric to become Founding Principal of Electronic Systems Engineering Company, (ESE), in Portland, Maine, (a High-Power Microwave and RF Physics Networks and Antenna Systems Consultancy).
-In February of 1984, George completed the 5 year required Engineering Apprenticeship and passed the 16-hour examination, and became a Licensed Professional Engineer
-Between 1984 and 2007, George authored, published and presented seven technical papers in the Proceedings of the IEEE, the National Association of Broadcasters, and the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.
...
-In 1987 and 1988, George delivered four technical seminars as an Expert Professional from the United States on Broadcast Antenna Technology to regulatory authorities overseeing the licensing and use of high power microwave and radio frequency systems in Brazil, France, Germany and Venezuela.
-In 1991, after receiving a large contract from Argonne National Laboratory for the complete design and manufacture of the ultra-high-vacuum, high-power S-band microwave system for Argonne's Advanced Photon Source Linear Accelerator, George founded RF Technologies Corporation, (RFT), in Lewiston, Maine.
...
-In 1995, George was principle inventor of a new high power industrial microwave technology-based system for the highly precise application of microwave power used in the manufacture of Laminated Veneer Lumber. The Intellectual Property for this technology is protected by three issued U.S. Patents issued to George.
-Currently, high power industrial microwave systems based on his technology are in use in many countries in the world including the U.S., Canada, new Zealand and Russia.
-During his tenure at RFT, George has been the principal or sole inventor for nine issued U. S. Patents covering high power microwave and RF physics-based networks, systems and applications.
-In addition to the nine issued U.S. Patents, George currently has seven more U.S. Patents Pending, (with an eighth to be filed), covering systems, methods and networks relating to high power microwave and RF physics applications and related technologies.
-George has been an amateur radio operator since he was nine years old, holds a General Radiotelephone Operator's License with Radar Endorsement and is a Licensed Private Airplane Pilot. He is a full Member of the Association of Federal Communications Consulting Engineers, and is "Consultant to the Firm" for many well-established global Consulting Engineering organizations for High Power Microwave and RF Applications.
-In 2004, RF Technologies Corporation was sold to The Ferrite Company, Inc. in Nashua, New Hampshire. From 2004 until the end of his Contract in December of 2008, George served as President of RF Technologies, LLC, (a Ferrite Company), where he oversaw general operations as well as all product development activities for high power RF and microwave systems.
-Between 2004 and 2008, George was Staff Consultant for high power industrial microwave systems at the Ferrite Co., Inc. in Nashua, New Hampshire.
-Since 2005, George has served on the Engineering Physics Oversight Board at the University of Maine in Orono, Maine, and beginning in 2006, he also serves on the Dean's Academic Advisory Council for the Dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Maine.
-Because of his work in High Power Microwave Physics and related fields, in 2007 George was inducted into the Francis Crowe Society as Distinguished Engineer by the Society's Board, after his nomination for that Honor by the Chairman of the Department of Physics at the University of Maine.

"I was as intimidated as you can be," said George Harris, CEO of RF Technologies and a 1979 graduate of the University of Maine."I was on their turf, in their facility and they were the customer.I was afraid they would chew me up and spit me out."
But two hours later, it was quite the opposite.
"I was more prepared than they were," said Harris with a laugh.He got the contract and ever since, has never questioned his ability to go toe-to-toe with Ivy League engineers - a tribute, he said, to the quality of his education at Orono.
"In my career, I've worked with engineers from big-name universities, and I keep waiting for the big splash," he said, ticking off names like Stanford, Yale, Duke, Vanderbilt and the University of Chicago among others.
It hasn't come.
But last week, his alma mater made a little splash of its own.A pioneer in the use of microwave technology, Harris was inducted as a Distinguished Engineer into the Francis Crowe Society, a professional association that recognizes exceptional accomplishments in the engineering field.He was nominated by Dr. David Batusky, head of the physics department.
"It was very humbling," said Harris of the honor."I had a lump the size of a baseball in my throat when they told me about it."
As part of the induction ceremony, Harris addressed this year's engineering grads.He advised them not be cowed by the reputations of higher-prestige schools, a lesson he learned that day at MIT and has been reinforced time and again.
"We bow before no one," he told the grads.
Since founding RF Technologies in 1991, Harris has led his company in the research and development of high-precision components for the broadcast, wood products and medical equipment industries.
Among their current projects is an electron beam accelerator to enhance imaging systems that diagnose cancer.
Three years ago, RFT joined Ferrite Corp., a New Hampshire-based company that brought business savvy and capital to the tech-oriented Lewiston operation.Since then, the company has grown at 40 percent a year and moved into a new facility on Gendron Drive, Harris said.
During the induction, he received a plaque, a bronze medal on an orange ribbon and the right to be addressed as "Distinguished Engineer George M. Harris," an appellation he doubts he'll ever use, but which makes him smile, nonetheless.
"It was just a lot of fun," he said of the occasion.
