So what is the link between TESTniques' current business and Strategic Air Command?
I've been building electronic test equipment since I was kid in high school.  Upon entering the Air Force I completed Navigator training and Electronic Warfare Officer school.  Towards the end of my time with the AF I was involved with capture and analysis of airborne jammer signals from bomber aircraft.  GPIB controlled spectrum analyzers were used for this task.

After the AF, I went to work for the Military Avionics Division of Honeywell as a Senior Design Engineer building automated test systems for electronic warfare systems.  I've worked to test systems associated with ALQ-126(F-18), ALQ-135(F-15), and ALQ-172(B-52) among others.

In the late 80s I saw LabVIEW and LabWindows from National Instruments and concluded this is the future.  The PC would take over from Honeywell Level 6 computers and VME based computers.  It took about a year to put together business plan and launch TESTniques.

TESTniques' first product was the original Test Executive for LabWindows.  The test exec has been sucessfull in 100s of test systems.  After a few years  National Instruments caught on and their product now dominates the market.  Even though we were selling the test exec, consulting and custom software development/system integration forms the core of the business.
