Glen McIntosh, Ph.D., Founder and Chief Technology Officer, CTS
is a pioneer in post-1950 cryogenic engineering.
He joined the (NIST) Cryogenic Engineering Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado in early 1953 and has worked full time in cryogenic technology since that time.
As a team leader and individual contributor, Dr. McIntosh
has been responsible for designing hydrogen refrigerators and liquefiers for a number of international high-energy physics laboratories.
is an authority on high performance cryogenic insulation and has utilized this skill in designing a wide variety of storage and transport dewars for helium, hydrogen, neon, nitrogen, oxygen, argon and LNG.
is a meticulous designer of cryogenic heat exchangers including hydrogen dewar pressurization heat exchangers for NASA launch facilities at Vandenberg and Kennedy Space Flight Centers
has designed large hydrogen and oxygen densification heat exchangers for NASA
has documented some of his
work in approximately 75 refereed technical publications and seven patents.
He is a registered Professional Engineer in Colorado and his education includes qualification as a U. S. Naval Aviator, a BSME from North Dakota State University and Ph.D. from Purdue University with a major in heat transfer and thermodynamics.
