SBPO Small Business – Spotlight of the Month
B & A ENGINEERING INC.
Mr. Alireza Bakhshi
Received his MSEE (1986) and BSEE (1984) from Oklahoma State University (OSU). After graduating from OSU, he moved to southern California. He always dreamed of working on space projects and JPL was the first place that he applied for work. But time was not right and he started his career in Avionics and Airport systems working as a design engineer for a small company located in Whittier. Experience gained working for a small business turned out to be priceless since exposed him to many different engineering disciplines. He was involved with the design and implementation of several successful FAA airport lighting and control systems which are still being used in airports. He then moved to work for Teledyne Control located in Los Angeles as a Field engineer first and later on as Electronic design engineer and was involved with Airplane data acquisition and control systems. His field engineering experience helped him to understand customer needs and relationships. After ten years and couple of unsuccessful attempts he finally was able to get a contracting work with JPL. He founded and incorporated BAENG in August of 2000. He is the Principal in BAENG and involves both technically and in a day-to-day operation of the company.
