Ascendant Engineering Solutions was founded in 2005, and is managed by four partners, each bringing a different area of engineering expertise to the fold. We believe that integrating our diversity of knowledge opens up new avenues for collaboration and innovation, and we embrace a culture of cross-disciplinary interaction and research. Drawing on 100 years of combined experience, the AES team turns the multi-disciplined concept into a successful design services firm.

Jon Noeth, President
With over 25 years of experience in both the commercial and military systems arenas, Jon has led a variety of multi-discipline teams through all project phases. Most recently he transitioned a high-tech start-up team through the production phase at a large multi-national corporation. Jon started his career developing advanced night vision sensors and systems for Texas Instruments. He took that advanced technology through the production phase before moving on to a start-up called Applied Science Fiction based in Austin. Today he brings his strong program management and systems engineering background to Ascendant.

Jon holds a B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Clarkson University.

Marc Digby, Director of Operations
Marc has spent the last 20 years developing hardware and software solutions at all phases of product development, from first architectural concepts and rapid prototypes to production hardware and automated factory test equipment. After designing custom control electronics and software for the R & D groups at Texas Instruments, Tektronix and Applied Science Fiction, Marc has been leading design teams responsible for the development of new commercial, industrial and military systems.

Marc holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Texas A & M University and is also an Instrument-Rated Commercial Pilot.

Bill Mapel, Director of Development
Bill has over 25 years of mechanical engineering experience focusing on productionization of equipment for commercial and military markets. As a leader in concurrent engineering, Bill has consistently executed successful programs within schedule and budget constraints throughout his career.
