Peter Kearl, the inventor and holder of the several High Power Microwave (HPM) patents, provides unique experience across several technical disciplines. While a research scientist at the U.S. DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, he served as project manager for the high power microwave program. The program was initiated in 1992 as a cooperative program with Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the heating and removal of dense non-aqueous liquids (DNAPLs) legacy hazardous waste at DOE facilities. Theoretical, experimental, and laboratory testing of the HPM system, capable of radiating 500 KW of energy into the subsurface, was demonstrated. Mr. Kearl’s experience and know-how relative to microwave technology and its propagation characteristics in the subsurface are unique. In addition, Mr. Kearl has strong relationships with world-class equipment manufacturers and prestigious government research facilities. He is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Qmast LLC.
