Edward W. Hart, RCDD
Edward Hart started his career at Arora Engineers as the
network administrator, but the allure of what his colleagues
were doing with aviation engineering began to grow on him. It
wasn't long before he made the move.
" I wound up at the engineering firm and it had nothing to do
with the aviation industry. Then once I got there and I started
really exploring and understanding what everybody was doing
there and having a technology background, I really want to
understand that a little bit better, " Hart said. " I became fond
of the engineering process and what everyone was doing
around me, especially in aviation, so I started to migrate into
an engineering role. "

and over 13 years of experience with information technology
systems and oversees multi-million-dollar network design
projects for clients and agencies across the nation. Hart holds
numerous professional certifications including Registered
Communications Distribution Designer, CompTIA Security+,
Digital Signage Certified Expert, and Crestron DigitalMedia
Certified Designer 4K.
Currently, Hart is providing expertise for the $1.2 billion

Redevelopment Program. Hart is overseeing Arora's team of
special systems engineers responsible for design of the low
voltage, electronic video information displays, common use
systems, emergency mass notification, public address/audio
paging system, visual dispatch and docking guidance systems,
and visual paging.
His approach to systems integration led him to develop
highly specialized project specifications for Terminal One,
which facilitates communication between systems that have
seldom been required to communicate prior, in order to yield
an enhanced view of facility metrics and operations.
Hart said that while he enjoys the entire engineering process
from design to construction, it's seeing all the hard work pay
off in a completed project that is his favorite part.
