Gary Confalone has been working in the metrology industry for the past 30 years. He began his career in Systems Integration as an Engineer at Sikorsky Aircraft. At Sikorsky Gary was an active member of the American Helicopter Society, where he was involved in laser metrology research as it applied to the production of the Army’s RAH-66 Comanche Helicopter. He received the Inventor's Recognition Award from Sikorsky Aircraft where he spent close to a decade developing various laser based measurement and boresighting systems in support of the Comanche, Special Ops Blackhawk, Navalhawk, and S-92 programs. After leaving Sikorsky and moving to Boston, Gary became the East Coast Sales Engineer for SpatialMetrix Corp. (SMX), one of the original architects of laser tracker technology. From there he went on to a position as the Director of Business Development for LPT, Inc., traveling internationally to incorporate laser projection technology into the manufacturing process. Gary received a Bachelors of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts Lowell with a minor in optical physics. He continued his graduate studies in optical physics and engineering earning a Masters of Science Degree from Boston University. Today Gary is the founder of East Coast Metrology, LLC (Now: ECM: A Division of In-Place Machining Company), a metrology division servicing the industry on a global level through its facilities located in the greater Boston and Detroit areas. Gary exercises an extreme passion for STEM related initiatives and is an advocate for creating a higher awareness for women in engineering and metrology careers. Gary currently serves as Past Chairperson and is an active member of the Coordinate Metrology Society and the Certification Sub-Committee.
