Mr. Owen joined CGH in CGH in 1998 and since then each year Mr. Owen ensures that there are many social responsibility efforts that give back to the community such as hosting an annual blood drive, cancer runs, coat drives, can drives, toy drives, suite drive, soup kitchen volunteer efforts and generous donations to different organizations such as the Children’s Hospital, Dress for Success, Food and Friends, St. Ann's Infant & Maternity Home, March of Dimes, Red Cross and the National Zoo.
“As a COO, I demand from myself and my staff a belief that risk is in all our operations as well as in the vision to implement proven solutions. Given that we are able to manage risk, our vision of successfully implementing our solutions becomes time-honored. Employees begin to believe that anything is possible and that even a small business can change the world (as some of our software solutions are proving),” said Glyn Owen, CGH Technologies, Inc., COO.
Mr. Vallikat joined CGH in 2006, he is a true innovator with dedication and participation, bringing people and ideas together to create a pathway for future endeavors.
Mr. Vallikat is responsible for designing and developing the Federal NOTAM System (FNS) which is mission critical to the United States (US) National Airspace System (NAS). He is the primary technical engineer involved in the design and development of the technical architecture and implementation of the FNS. The goal of this program is to provide a fully digital solution that significantly improves how NOTAMs are created and distributed. This is a significant undertaking considering the existing NOTAM System has not changed considerably over the past fifty years and also the critical part it plays in protecting the NAS. For the past fifty years, this program has been a manual process with endless human error. The mission is to automate the program and create a new digital system, called FNS.
This new system combines both civilian and military NOTAMs into a single system to balance diverse customer needs from the Airline Industry to Air Traffic Control (ATC), General Aviation, International and military, as well as private Airports. The joint goal of the Department of Defense (DOD) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is to have a single federal system with full International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) implementation started late 2009 – early 2010 timeframes.
“Technology is one area where what is good today may not be tomorrow. This is a constant challenge all technologists face. What we've found successful is to not evaluate technology in silo, but always consider the business side where the technology is going to be used. Bottom-
CGH looks forward to continuing to make a difference in others lives in the years to come.
