Tom S. Morgan

VP Intelligence, Mobility and Embedded Technologies (IMET)

Tom Morgan is responsible for identifying capability gaps within the company’s customer base and developing new technologies and products to fill those gaps. He is also responsible for GTS’s relationship with the National Security Agency (NSA) and all commercial solutions for classified (CSfC) programs commoditization efforts.

A U.S. Air Force veteran, Tom has more than 25 years of experience leading local, regional, national, and international projects regarding information technology architecture, enterprise and mobility design, secure portable/mobile communications (including CSfC programs, product and protocol development) and final solution testing and integration. Throughout his career, he has designed and built computers, servers and secure micro- servers, mobile communications products and kits. He has also written software for various commercial and government mission-oriented purposes.

Before joining GTS, Tom served as a C-level executive in multiple government technology companies. As Vice President of Engineering at Mission Mobility, he provided technical vision and product development leadership for military, civilian government organizations, first responders and commercial markets, both domestically and internationally.

Other leadership positions include serving as President and Chief Executive Officer of Unidyne Global Technologies,  Chief Technical Officer and Product Development Director at PROSOFT and pTerex (founding member with pTerex ownership). While at pTerex, Tom designed the company’s commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware products using OEM equipment, a custom chassis, custom UPS and power distribution system. These COTS hardware products were the first to incorporate TEMPEST protections to allow systems from multiple levels of classification to utilize the same mobile/portable power solution and avoid strict separation requirements.

Additional notable contributions to the defense technology industry include:

  • Designed and implemented the first distance learning network within the DOD, for the USMC providing access to over 250,000 marines.
  • Designed the first information assurance architecture incorporating all required external defense-in-depth principles, which has been used as a template to follow within the DOD for over 15 years.
  • Designed and implemented the first optical dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) architecture used within the U.S. Department of Defense.
  • Developed the first CSfC reference architecture incorporating optical encryption.
  • Modified, in collaboration with Cisco, the mobile IP protocol so its dependence on service providers enabling protocols was removed.
  • Designed and implemented the first DOD resilient mobile architecture that seamlessly moved between multiple WAN mediums and COOP gateways without user intervention.
  • Designed and implemented DOD’s first replicated datacenter between the US and Canadian defense departments to protect the US northern border.

His extensive commitment in advancing the defense technology industry has earned him lifetime memberships with recognized professional organizations, including AFCEA, NDIA, and AUSA. He is also a member USGIF and IEEE.

During his military career, Tom served as an aircraft armament systems specialist in the U.S. Air Force Fairchild base. He was responsible for training dozens of military personnel in the repair and troubleshooting of aircraft weapon system electronics and general support as dictated by the Strategic Air Command and the Air Combat Command. His military training was conducted at the Lackland, Texas and Lowry, Colorado Air Force Bases, where he specialized in electronics and aircraft weapon systems.
