Scott Bullock

Scott R. Bullock received his BSEE degree from Brigham Young University in 1979 and his MSEE degree from the University of Utah in 1988. Mr. Bullock worked in research and development for most of his career developing a radar simulator, a spread spectrum microscan receiver, a new spread spectrum receiver where he applied for a patent and was awarded company funds as a new idea project to develop the concept..

Mr. Bullock also developed a spread spectrum environment simulator for a spread spectrum wideband countermeasures receiver using BPSK, QPSK, SQPSK, MSK, frequency hopper, hybrids, AM, FM, voice generator, jammers, and noise. He also designed a high-frequency adaptive filter used to reduce narrowband jammers in a wideband signal; a broadband, highly accurate frequency hop detector; an instantaneous Fourier transform (IFT) receiver; a chopper modulated receiver; a KU-band radio design for burst spread spectrum communications through a troposcatter channel; a Gram-Schmidt orthogonalizer to reduce jammers; an advanced tactical data link; RF analysis of an optical receiver study; a portable wideband communications detector; and an acoustic-optic spectrum analyzer photodiode array controller.

Mr. Bullock developed the first handheld PCS spread spectrum telephone with Omnipoint in the 902-928 MHz ISM band. He also received a patent for his work on reducing spectral lines to meet the FCC power spectral density requirements.

Mr. Bullock was responsible for various types of spread spectrum data links for the SCAT-1 program related to aircraft GPS landing systems. He was an active participant in the RTCA meetings held in Washington, DC, for the evaluation and selection of the D8PSK data link to be used as the standard in all SCAT-1 systems. He also worked on the concepts of the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), low probability of intercept (LPI) data link, DS/FH air traffic control asynchronous system, JTRS, and Link-16.

Mr. Bullock developed several commercial products such as wireless jacks for telephones, PBXs, modems, wireless speakers, and other various wireless data link products. He has performed data link communications work and taught seminars for Texas Instruments, L-3 Com, BAE, Omnipoint, E-Systems, Phonex, L-3 SND, Raytheon, CIA, SAIC, MKS/ENI, Northrop Grumman, and Thales. Mr. Bullock has held many high-level positions, such as Vice President of Engineering for Phonex Broadband, Vice President of Engineering for L-3 Satellite Network Division, , Senior Director of Engineering for MKS/ENI, Engineering Fellow at Raytheon, and Consulting Engineer for Northrop Grumman. He specializes in wireless data link design and system analysis and directs the design and development of wireless products for both commercial and military customers.

Mr. Bullock holds 18 patents and 22 trade secrets in the areas of spread spectrum wireless data links, adaptive filters, frequency hop detectors, cognitive radios and systems, and wireless telephone and data products. He has published numerous articles dealing with spread spectrum modulation types, multipath, AGCs, PLLs, and adaptive filters. He is the author of two books; Transceiver and System Design for Digital Communications, and Broadband Communications and Home Networking. He is a licensed professional engineer and a member of IEEE and Eta Kappa Nu. He has taught seminars at many different companies for over 10 years. He has taught an advanced communication course at ITT, an engineering course at PIMA Community College, and was a guest lecturer on multiple access systems at PolyTechnic University, Long Island, New York. He is currently an instructor for Besser Associates.
