George Freas, Computer Scientist, Engineer and Consultant has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Computer Science, Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
After taking a high school computer course, Mr. Freas became interested in Computer Science and felt a career in the field would be a match suited for his personality and abilities. He prepared by first earning a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with an emphasis in Systems Analysis, from Western Kentucky University in 1979. He later returned to his academic pursuits to receive a Master of Science in Computer Science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville with an emphasis in Artificial Intelligence. Throughout his career, Mr. Freas has been motivated by a driving need to make the world a better place through the exclusive and growing list of his new ideas and concepts that he sees currently lacking in the world.
Since 1999, Mr. Freas has been engaged with the International Space Station Payload Support Software group at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. In addition, he is the manager and owner of Freas Consulting, LLC (previously Synergistic Consultants), a position he has held since 1991. In early 2020, he left his position with Boeing. Mr. Freas is independently working for NASA’s Small Business Innovators Research Grants program, as well as several kickstarter programs. He is looking forward to submitting proposals to NASA, and branching out into more general engineering including mechanical engineering, as opposed to being strictly software-based. From 1997 through 2010, Mr. Freas also worked to inspire young professionals in the STEM field as an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science of Master’s level courses at the American Sentinel University (formerly American Institute of Computer Science).
Mr. Freas remains affiliated with a number of professional organizations. He is a member of the American Astronautical Society and he serves on the International Space Station Utilization Technical Committee at ISS Research and Development Conferences. In 2009, he received the Boeing Meritorious Invention Award for the Remote Advanced Payload Test Rig. As a leader in the industry, Mr. Freas has worked to improve technology and software. He is the sole inventor of two Aerospace related patents pending, and has other patents in work. Mr. Freas credits his success in his profession to his strong work ethic. Looking toward the future, he endeavors to continue branching out his consulting firm and spending more time working on his lake house. In all of his pursuits, he has brought a diverse set of skills to the table along with novel ideas that cover many market categories and a broad range of disciplines. Being more of a generalist, armed with a vast suite of specialties, Mr. Freas takes a design from inception to early prototype, then to a maturely tested product ready for production and finally sales.
