I was laid off by QinetiQ about 4-1/2 years ago, after 28-1/2 years at FMI. The company (Q) was forced to downsize FMI several years after acquiring it. Over 28+ years at FMI, I had the good fortune to work with an exceptional variety of dedicated top performing engineers and technicians on an wide spectrum of unique prototype devices and systems.
