Barrett's latest Field Engineering R&D        

As Chief Research Engineer of American Solar Wind Energy LLC (ASWE) TM Ron Barrett tests the SolarPhotoVoltaics, aerodynamics, structures, and electrical generation systems of the Advanced Compound Solar Savonius (ACSS TM ) models being prepared for manufacturing.

The ACSS's TM range from the current five-feet tall, upward. Similitude mathematics of scale and low Reynolds number turbulent vortical flow data are employed through out the testing. The largest ACSS TM is to be 32 feet. All are of the vertical axis wind turbine type with integrated SolarPV, designed for residential and farm use. Electrical power out put is to be both DC & AC.

As a Field Engineer Barrett travels world wide conducting RD&T. Here Ron is at Edwards AFB/NASA Dryden Flight Test Center conducting historical flight data and airfoil research. 
 
Additionally Barrett as Historian and President of the Air Force Navigators Observers Association (AFNOA). Ron collects information for the AF Navigators’ Comprehensive History (AFNCH) which he created, edited and provided to the USAF/HO and AFNOA members. The AFNCH is a comprehensive compilation of more than 11,000 pdf pages of Navigator training, flight, and historical manuals, and related documents dating from 1903 to present.

Saudi Arabia

The Globe Master Gods could only be written by someone like Barrett, a flyer, who has traveled and worked in more than 40 lands, around the globe, Korea to Iceland, and lived on the economy for years in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He is a former USAF Cadet, Navigator/Bombardier, international pilot instructor and multimedia communications lecturer. Today he creates interactive multimedia works for the WWW and CD/DVDS applications.

Ron is also a member of the Valiant Air Command Museum in Titusville, Florida http://www.vacwarbirds.org/

Days in Key West

"Your BOAT fellow, your boat, roll your boat over!"

Yep the front yard is the runway!

Summerland Key, 24N latitude work area. Here I test new materials in tropical conditions.

Fun time in Key West is going to breakfast at the
docks. Lots of locals come in their dinghies and
spend the morning catching up on fishing and
marine issues.
