Jeffrey M. Kezerian - President and Founder
has thirty years in engineering technology development, with expertise in simulations, modeling, design, analysis, and prototype development.
Jeff has managed programs up to $120M, and project-engineered development efforts routinely above $1M.
Fully seasoned in the operational and project life cycle management throughout conception and design in defense and commercial, his
hands-on simulations fluency is comprised of finite element analysis in non-linear dynamics, structural and vibration response, thermal modeling, and FEA optimization, as well as custom coding with today's analytical CAE tools.
Of Jeff's current engineering programs, he leads Simulations on the U.S. Navy NAVSEA Advanced Sabot System Design development effort.
This originated as a Phase I SBIR effort in 2008 and progressed through to Phase III.
This directly supports ONR's
electromagnetic railgun program.
In 2012, Simulations hasd the honor to provide NAVSEA witht their first composite sabot launched via their EM railgun.
This effort utilized the latest 3D composite fiber technology.
The success of this SBIR brought Jeff
and Simulations, LLC
to lead NAVSEA's HyperVelocity Projectile (HVP) program composite sabot development effort.
Jeff is the principal investigator currently designing NAVSEAs railgun and Mk 45 5" composite sabot.
From 2003 to 2011 Jeff was the principal investigator contracted with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL).
collaborated with the Army developing customized FEA pre-processor codes that simulated and optimized the structural behavior and limitations of hypervelocity electromagnetically launched Integrated Launch Packages (ILP).
These programs required detailed modeling of armatures, tapered and threaded long-rod penetrators, multi-sectioned sabots, obturators, and in-bore payload behavior.
In parallel to Jeff''s career in defense, he
has designed and developed commerical and private industry devices and components.
