David is an electronics engineer specializing in digital systems, FPGAs, and image processing. He's worked at such companies as Delta-Q Technologies, Verisante, Mistywest, and Signal Laboratories. His passion for high-speed imaging began in 2006 after seeing the cool things Mythbusters were doing. Unable to afford a high-speed camera at the time, he set out to build his own, which ultimately lead to Chronos. In his spare time, he makes science and engineering videos on his Youtube channel tesla500.
Matthew (Hardware / FPGA Engineer)
Matthew has been with us from the beginning of the Kickstarter. He is famously known for his pastries, code, love of sushi, and general tinkering abilities. Please do not leave shiny gears in the office area… Matthew has been known to be very interested in things both shiny and gear shaped. He is the other half of David's brain. What David can't figure out Matthew most likely has the answers and vice versa.
Tabatha (Operations Manager and IT)
She is the crazy person who runs around in the shadows, writing emails in the early mornings. Her background includes chef, network admin, and cat wrangler. Jack of all trades that never seems to remember to go home. If you ever email into info@ at 6 am and get an email back in less than 10 seconds… it’s probably Tabatha.
Tyler (Operations and Shipping)
He likes sunsets and long walks on the beach... preferably at night. Catering to the international inbox, Tyler is the night owl who takes care of the info@, ships your cameras around the world, and will be doing the fun admin tasks. He doesn’t bite and plays well with others. His background includes: getting stuff done, looking at shiny things, computer games and various hobbies.
Owen (Software Engineer)
Software engineer by day, and hardware tinkerer by night. He has a long career in wireless technology, network protocols and real time systems. He's known to have a particular fondness for cryptography, computer security and problems that venture into computational number theory. In his spare time you might find him making hot sauce, praying to the church of GNU, or pretending to be an amateur race car driver.
David R. (Software / User Interface)
The guy trying to make the camera interface pretty and intuitive. The lone designery-type in the herd of low-level hardware engineers that is Krontech. Often swears at Inkscape, though he secretly loves it. As a hobby, David makes open-source games! Check out his latest project at https://frogatto.com. You can find him on the forums as David Roberts (DDR), Graphical Developer.
Sean (Production [Workshop Monster])
He's the general all-around "Utility creature". Producing Chronos cameras, building lab furnishings, rigs & jigs, and otherwise serving in a sourcing, scavenging, scaffolding, scheming, suspiciously-cackling tinker role. The KronTech staff have learned when to be wary about any quiet cackling in the back; It usually means something creative or alarming is about to be captured on a Chronos-in-testing. He also is known for his contributions to the Will it Mow? YouTube channel run by Tesla500, including the "Mow-Hem" containment chamber, and associated rigs & jigs.
Simon (Debug & UI)
Simon is David's brother and self-taught programmer who helps to implement new features in and debug the user interface on the camera using Qt. Simon enjoys racing and crashing with and without cheats in Burnout 2: Point of Impact. Check out his YouTube channel sparker599!
