As part of our continually expanding Cabin Management & Technology Systems capabilities, for customers such as Aerion Supersonic, Rosen is proud to introduce the newest member of our insightful team of advocates: Jeremy Kneuper. A talented Systems Engineer with nearly 15 years of experience, Jeremy will be serving as Senior System Architect for CMTS solutions. We sat down with Jeremy to share a little more about his background and the innovative ideas he will bring to the industry.
- Tell me about yourself and your role at Rosen.
I was born and raised in South Texas, where I learned how to make real BBQ and say “yes ma’am/sir” and “y’all” to just about everyone. I graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 2003. I began my career at a small, employee-owned company developing communication systems for the Department of Defense. I wore many hats there, such as software engineer, quality assurance, test engineer and manufacturing engineer. I moved into aviation in 2007 and have been in this industry since then.
At Rosen, I’m tasked with the design and implementation of the complete Cabin Management and Technology System for the Aerion AS2 Supersonic Business Jet with the goal of “future proofing” and scalability. There are many new and emerging technologies and processes that have the potential to revolutionize the business jet market. My role is to help make that potential a reality.
- What is your background, and what do you plan to bring to the AS2 development that is beyond the traditional expectations?
I have 14 years of industry experience, ranging from OEM level Avionics and Electrical System integration, to Interior/Cabin Advanced Design, as well as leading Interior Research and Development. I’ve spent the last 8 years trying to drive state-of-the-art technologies and products into aircraft cabins by focusing on how to enhance the passenger experience.
As for the AS2, our development will be driven by our desire to redefine the aircraft cabin by nurturing and enhancing the five senses in all the systems CMTS touches. Additionally, the AS2 program is not only an industry first in the supersonic business jet market, but also in Aerion’s approach to supplier collaboration. The traditional OEM practice of keeping suppliers at arm’s length is ineffective and negatively impacts schedule, costs and innovation.
The partnership between Rosen and Aerion provides a never-before-seen level of trust and transparency between OEM and suppliers that is truly groundbreaking.
- What are your personal goals, as well as your objectives for Rosen, in 10 years?
My personal goals are to become a fully assimilated Oregonian, enjoy all the Pacific Northwest has to offer and maybe even get an RV that everyone here seems to have!
My objective with Rosen is continuing to foster and build upon the culture and ideals that make Rosen what it is. I was drawn to Rosen, not just because we have best in class products, design, and a visionary mindset; but more importantly, because of the guiding philosophies: Trust one another, devote yourself and own your outcome. That isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but for those who embrace it, they can be part of the best of the best at Rosen.
