Expression Networks Proudly Names David Murray Chief Operating Officer
Expression Networks, LLC, a leading innovator in data fusion, enterprise architecture, and electromagnetic spectrum management solutions, is proud to announce the hiring of David Murray as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Prior to joining Expression, David led the Radio Frequency (RF) Sensors and Systems Emerging Technologies business unit at Southwest Research Institute, where he led the operations, programs, technical direction, and overall strategy of an applied research and development organization spearheading innovations in Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), Electronic Warfare (EW), Cyber warfare, commercial communications, and signal exploitation and geolocation technologies. Within four years of taking over the position, David’s business unit achieved the highest fiscal year net profits in its 35-year history, becoming one of the most technologically diverse business units in the company.
“David is a visionary who brings unmatched depth and breadth of knowledge covering the gamut of spectrum operations, including an expert level understanding of the newest enabling technologies,” said Abir Ray, founder of Expression Networks. “His energy and charisma are immediately evident and infectious, and his unique combination of business management and technical skills will prove vital to our company as we continue to pace the market in joint electromagnetic spectrum operations (JEMSO) vision and solutions, and as we rapidly grow and translate our unique data fusion and analytics capabilities into new markets.”
David has spent his entire career in new technology development supporting spectrum operation missions. David started as a computer engineer for Harris Corporation, where he designed and developed embedded software and data analytics for custom transceiver systems. He rapidly progressed into software development management, systems engineering, and then product line management and new product introduction for a family of RF SIGINT systems, with nearly 5,000 units deployed worldwide. When David left Harris to join SwRI, he established new business lines in trending EW, Cyber, and commercial Internet of Things (IoT) markets, supporting a variety of clients ranging from DoD research labs, to VC-backed start-ups, established domestic and international commercial companies, and members of the intelligence community.
At Expression, David will use his experience in cutting-edge R&D and multi-domain spectrum operations to help our clients define, create, and deploy cross-cutting spectrum operations convergence solutions. His responsibilities will include all aspects of business strategy, client service, technical execution, growth, and administration.
