What People say

recommendation
Tom Dwyer
business-partner
I have known Hagai Jacobsen since 2001. We met while he was in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) working as a Communications Specialist while developing the MLRS Trajectory Correction System (TCS). He worked with our company and others to assure mission communications between the Ground Control Station and the Launcher met all IDF requirements. He was so highly regarded in that capacity that upon completing active service he was immediately hired by Israel Military Industries (IMI), the TCS prime contractor. In his new capacity he continued to work on the TCS program, only now from the contractor side. While at IMI he expanded his expertise by becoming the primary vehicle commander of program missile launches conducted by IMI in Israel. He prepared and conducted numerous TCS development flight test missions. I know Hagai to be intelligent, proactive, energetic, friendly, organized, a team player, with a positive attitude, who listens well, and an excellent communicator. I can recommend him without reservation. Tom Dwyer Lockheed Martin MFC 972 603 9834 [email protected]
