Cyprien de Cosson, formerly technical director for the company, has assumed the role of managing director for ATDI.
de Cosson assumes his new duties in ATDI’s 13th year and at a time when both the economic climate and radio spectrum management are in periods of unprecedented flux.
“That makes it a great time to be stepping up,” he said. “What’s required at times like this is continuity and stability. The fact I’ve been at ATDI since its creation means that I can bring with me the element of constancy along with some fresh thinking to meet the new challenges.”
de Cosson studied electrical and electronic engineering at Bristol University before starting as a development engineer with MEL Communications, where he was in charge of the design of RF equipment for both civil and military radio communications. He has worked for Thales in the United States and France, where he was responsible for research into frequency hopping techniques to optimize spectrum occupancy of large-scale deployments.
At ATDI, his responsibilities include specification, development and management of existing and new products to enhance the company product portfolio. He will also provide support to many spectrum organizations, including Ofcom, ComReg and Post- og Teletilsynet on modern spectrum management across the spectrum from 9 kHz to 100 GHz.
