Mr. Markushewski is highly qualified as a crashworthiness engineer. He has established a distinctive career in the field of accident reconstruction, crashworthiness, occupant crash protection, emergency escape, crash safety and survival, and life support engineering. His extensive experience focuses on research, design, test and evaluation of aircraft and vehicular seating systems, restraint systems, ejection seat design, crashworthy seating systems, seat belts and inflatable restraints and protective devices. As a result of demonstrated leadership in this area, he has held the positions of project engineer, team leader, systems engineer and project manager of significant occupant protection system design, development and test programs responsible for project progress from inception through completion. He has prepared and established program and hardware technical and performance specifications and manuals for many programs and vehicle platforms including aircraft and ground vehicles. Mr. Markushewski has acted, and currently acts as a lead investigator and mishap reconstructionist for military and civilian aircraft and automotive mishaps to evaluate occupant protection system performance and the evaluation of mechanisms of injury. Because of his experience and knowledge in the occupant crash protection area, Mr. Markushewski has been designated as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) on seating and restraint system design and performance by the United States Army. He is currently consulting with the National Hockey League on impacts and the performance of athletic equipment.
As a result of his in-depth knowledge and experience, Mr. Markushewski is a recognized leader in the field of accident reconstruction, crashworthiness and occupant protection. Mr. Markushewski is currently the Chief Technical Officer (CTO) for ARCCA, Incorporated. Collapse

He then went on to obtain a Masters of Science and a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of Pittsburgh. While at the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Rentschler’s research included investigating the biomechanics of gait and falls in order to mitigate related injuries through the design of an autonomous robotic walker, as well as three dimensional motion and force analyses to study the biomechanics of shoulder, wrist, and spine injuries in wheelchair users. He has overseen clinical studies of live human subjects and participated in testing with anthropomorphic test devices (ATD) to gauge injury potential. Dr. Rentschler has completed advanced coursework in the fields of biomechanics, kinematics of the human body, biomaterials, engineering mechanics, and anatomy and physiology.
Dr. Rentschler’s academic and professional experience represents an extensive combination of mechanical and biomechanical engineering, including human kinematic analysis, ATD testing, and human anatomy and physiology. Currently, he specializes in the study of the kinematics and kinetics of the human body, injury mechanisms, and associated tolerances. Collapse

He has more than twenty years of experience in industrial manufacturing engineering; including gas turbine blades and vanes coatings, box trucks, hot aerospace structures, and gas generation equipment. His experience also includes design of manufacturing operations and specialized equipment such as machine guarding for personnel safety.
He has extensive experience inspecting and commissioning industrial gas generation systems at customer sites around the world (EMEA, Asia, Australia); including metals processing, glass manufacturing, and electrical power plants. He has engineered PEM Fuel Cell stacks and balance of plant, and related testing equipment; sensors, valves, pumps, humidification, phase separation, electrical load, and control systems.
Dr. Stichter has more than twenty years of experience in the design, manufacture, repair, and operation of passenger and high performance motorcycles and racing cars from model years 1910 until today.
His interest in automobiles inspired him to start his post-secondary education at McPherson College, in McPherson, KS, where he earned an Associate of Technology degree in Automotive Restoration Technology. This program included concentrated lab work in mechanical, body/paint, and trim restoration. He applied this hands-on experience to further education by going on to study mechanical engineering at Drexel University. While pursuing his BSME degree, he gained experience in aerospace development and manufacturing.
After earning his BSME, he joined Teledyne Energy Systems where he continued working on development projects for aerospace H2/O2 PEM fuel cells. He developed systems for micro- and lunar-gravity passive reactant recirculation and water separation, and controls for the fuel cell system. He also engineered, commissioned, and repaired hydrogen (and oxygen) generation plants. These systems included the hydrogen generators (by electrolysis), compressors, storage tanks, deionized water, chillers, control systems, and interconnecting piping.
Dr. Stichter’s graduate research work focused on optical diagnostics of combustion chemistry and included performing laser induced fluorescence (LIF) experiments studying the OH radical in the afterglow of a nanosecond pulsed plasma discharge at temperatures below the auto-ignition threshold; cavity ringdown spectroscopy (CRDS), magneto-optic rotation (MOR), and cavity enhanced magneto-optic rotation (CEMOR) experiments studying OH concentrations in a lean methane-air slot burner; and development of a novel cw-CEMOR spectroscopy system to study small peroxy radicals in a flash photolysis facility.
Dr. Stichter received his Doctor of Philosophy, a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, and a BSME from Drexel University. Collapse
