“Great progress has been made in PTC compliance, but there is much work to be done to meet the looming 2018 federal deadline,” stated Ian Choudri, HNTB national rail and transit business development director and senior vice president. “Jason provides our clients with technical counsel and expertise as PTC roll out moves through installation and testing.”
Orme has nearly 20 years of experience in electronics engineering and intelligent control systems. He also has domain and product knowledge on wayside and car-borne product lines.
