Welcome to my OnAir website

I have been working on developing, with a diverse group of talented collaborators, a new web-based system/platform called “onAir” that will facilitate the sharing of knowledge.

The OnAir system is a proprietary system owned by onAIR networks. The original inspiration for starting the company was to find better ways of employing the latest web technologies to Accelerate Innovative Research through creating networks focused on specific research disciplines and challenges.
