Systems Engineer III


Adam Monsalve is an expert in the area of cybersecurity having supported the NextGen organization in the FAA with its enterprise-level cybersecurity.  He specializes in the implementation of cybersecurity in the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) system which aims to integrate UAS into the National Airspace System.  He has coordinated this implementation at the international level to ensure interoperability between the FAA UTM system and international UTM efforts. Adam also has experience supporting the FAA Aeronautical Information Exchange Model (AIXM) in areas such as international alignment and extension harmonization.

Prior to joining CNA, Monsalve was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Florida in the department of biomedical engineering where he developed novel, magnetically-triggered systems for bio-molecular delivery, mechanisms for the magnetically-assisted isolation of biomarkers, and methods for the isolation of stem cells for tissue engineering applications.

Monsalve has a Ph. D in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Florida.
