Resilient Computing was founded in 2020 in order to commercialize computing technology that has been developed at Montana State University (MSU) under the direction of Professor Brock LaMeres. Dr. LaMeres' MSU research team has spent over a decade investigating techniques to increase the resilience of computers in adverse conditions. Applications of this research include high-performance space computing and malware-resistant embedded computers.
Brock LaMeres is the founder and president of Resilient Computing. Brock is a professor of electrical & computer engineering at Montana State University (MSU) where his research focus is on novel computer architectures.
Brock received his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado in electrical engineering. He holds 13 US Patents in the area of digital systems, has published over 100 papers and 6 textbooks in the area of computer engineering. Brock has secured and managed over $10M of research funds at MSU over the past 15 years. Prior to MSU, he worked for Hewlett-Packard for 8 years as a hardware designer working on digital test equipment.
Chris Major is the principal engineer for Resilient Computing. He is currently the Principal Investigator on the NASA SBIR award to bring RadPC to market. His expertise is in FPGA design with specific focus on how to implement novel computer architectures that take advantage of the real-time configuration of the programmable FPGA fabric.
Chris received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Montana State University (MSU) in 2023. His dissertation focused on how to synchronize redundant processors after unintended events such as radiation strikes or malware attacks.
