In 2008, a company in the burgeoning UAV industry approached Sales Application Engineer, Rob Krack, and his team about a large two-axis position and rate table. Internal challenges within the UAV company were facing the engineers who needed the testing equipment, but they were confident that they could overcome them and place the order.
A testament to the determination of everyone involved, Krack helped the engineers at the UAV company for nearly eight years as they worked to get approval for their motion table purchase. Hundreds of emails later, the order was finally placed in 2016, but included one ironic caveat considering the undertaking’s lead time: in order to secure funding, the motion table project needed to be wrapped up in just 10 weeks. Normally, a motion table of the size and scope needed would take five to six months to build and deploy. Krack knew that he and his team had their work cut out for them.
