The lead Engineer on the F5 was Jorge A. Saad.

...
This platform was designed by Engineers Jorge Saad and Dave Johnson (with John Gardiner and Mark Krieger additionally lending their talents) to offer outstanding discrimination, depth and ID capabilities.

Jorge: Good day Mr. Ellington.
...
Jorge: I was involved in the design of the Bounty Hunter Platinum and Gold; and the Fisher F5 machines.
DS: What's it like working at First Texas? (The people you work with, the philosophy, atmosphere, etc.)
Jorge: FTP is unique in many aspects.

Jorge Saad, Fisher Labs Engineer

DS: Hi Mr. Saad! Thanks for taking the time to answer a few questions about the very unique F5! There is a lot of interest in the metal detecting hobby about this unusual detector… First of all, tell us about yourself…. How long have you been designing metal detectors?
Jorge: Good day Mr. Ellington.

Jorge: I was involved in the design of the Bounty Hunter Platinum and Gold; and the Fisher F5 machines.
DS: What’s it like working at First Texas? (The people you work with, the philosophy, atmosphere, etc.)
Jorge: FTP is unique in many aspects.
...
Jorge: Dave was tired of cumbersome menu systems and wanted to come out with a menu-less environment that was easy to use.
...
Jorge: Certainly the user interface is quite unique on the F5.
...
Jorge: It is always tough.
...
Jorge: I absolutely love the almost non-existing learning curve of the F5.
...
Jorge: Well this is a tricky one, because it involves some trade secrets. I can tell you however that almost every other machine in the market has a combination of Gain and Threshold combined in a single “sensitivity†control of some sort. By breaking the sensitivity control into its factors the F5 response can be controlled to match the exigencies of a wider variety of field conditions: Noise, soil types and compositions, EMI and other interferences.
DS: I’ve heard you’ve been lead Designer on the F5… is that true?
Jorge: The F5 project was assigned to me.
...
Jorge: Lots of talent were pulled into this project.
...
Jorge: No. The F2 and the F4 share the same basic platform, but not the F5. The F5 is coming from an entirely new platform and its software is new as well, though some of the concepts were borrowed from the F70’s software.
DS: Could knob driven interfaces be a future trend for Fisher
Jorge: I personally fell in love with those knobs, but that is for the customers to say, really.
...
Jorge: It was more a result of the platform the F5 came from. The difficult part was to convey as much information as possible about the target without getting noisy. That is always a challenge on new designs.
DS: Are there plans for other coil options for the F5?
Jorge: Yes! We are looking forward having some accessory coils for the F5 and other machines. We will get there soon.
DS: All the new Fisher machines have incredible battery life! Is the F5 also super efficient?
Jorge: You can expect more than forty hours on a fresh pair of batteries with the F5.
DS: How in the heck are you guys at Fisher able to crank out so many innovative metal detectors at the pace you’ve set?
Jorge: Each of us have a hammock beneath the workbench, drink about four gallons of espresso a week, do not take vacations and see wives and relatives twice a year when they let us off the lab. Seriously, the creative muscle of this team is quite impressive. I think you will like what we have on the burner for the next season.
DS: What’s in store for Fisher Fans in the future? (if you can give us a sneak peek!)
Jorge: Well, Dave has been walking around mumbling funny numbers for more than two weeks now.
...
Jorge: Quite the contrary Sr., thank you for being a channel of communication and for all the time and effort you put on this hobby.
