Ken Braun

Chief Hardware Designer

If we specify it, Ken can build it. With a unique background ranging from design and development to manufacturing, Ken brings years of experience building electronic hardware for land, sea, and undersea use. After a successful career as a journeyman tool and die maker, Ken graduated from New Jersey Institute of Technology with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. As an electrical engineer, he has designed a benchtop scanning electron microscope; used electron beams to perform failure analysis on microprocessors; designed and constructed a novel non-contact electrical probe; and designed control systems for a remotely operated underwater vehicle. In his work at Solar Wave, Ken is responsible for both electrical design of the Advanced Energy Monitor as well as the mechanical design of its packaging.
