Chris volunteered for work force reduction (early retirement - TBD) in 2020 after 40 years at Honeywell. She was the Product Team Lead for Tactical Ring Laser Gyro in the Honeywell Aerospace Division. She had supported multiple phases of the DARPA Atomic clock programs, resulting in 7 patents from her work. Earlier in her career she was the lead Process engineer in the successful transitions from design to production for both the Integrated Flight Management Unit (IMU+GPS), and also the Stinger Roll Frequency Sensor.
At Honeywell’s Solid State Electronics Division, she was a Senior Design Methodology Engineer. She was in the MOS VLSI Design, as project lead for CMOS standard cell library development; and a CAD trainer for circuit simulation, logic & circuit design.
Recently a historical book and newspaper articles have come out about Honeywell's development of the Ring Laser Gyro written by James Lenz. Chris was a part of the design team in 3 of the RLG sensor product lines and Lead production engineer for two of the RLG based products. These were part of her 38 year career at Honeywell.
