Howard's engineering career began while in the United States Air Force. Immediately following his service, his avionics training was instrumental in landing him an engineering job with Lockheed-Martin. With an understanding of electronics and grasp of machine code in the early days of computer development, and a talent for writing lean and powerful real-time software, he was the perfect choice to design and develop Lockheed's 360degree Full Mission Flight Simulator.
After a 30 year career at Lockheed, Howard retired and began developing neurofeedback software. His background and experience led him to create EEGer4, an FDA cleared, device-independent program. In addition to being both complex and user-friendly, it is the first software of its kind to feature a double-blind study module. Currently, OSU/UNC-Asheville is using the EEGer4 software in their ICAN study, for which Howard lends his expertise, providing consultation and support. Howard continues to expand and develop his EEGer4 software.
