CONCORD ó Windshear Inc. has hired Phillip deMontigny and Kevin Haynes as the lead test technicians for its 180-mph rolling-road wind tunnel that opens in April. Haynes and deMontigny will be responsible for interfacing with customers in advance of testing, pre-test vehicle preparation, as well as the actual operation of the wind tunnel during customer test sessions. Prior to joining Windshear, deMontigny was the lead test technician for Chrysler Corp., where he supervised the daily operation of the Chrysler Aero-Acoustic wind tunnel. His duties included checking flow angularity, calibration and commissioning of the wind tunnel, as well as performing digital scans of cars and trucks to obtain frontal area measurement. While employed at Chrysler, he received training in ATOS lle 3-D imaging and TRITOP photogrammetry systems. Haynes most recently worked for Volt Technical Resources as Engineering Technician 3. Previously, he served as car chief for Transnet Racing, a team that competed in the NASCAR Busch Series. He has supervised maintenance and repair on a fleet of six NASCAR Busch Series race cars and has experience in electronics, including communication, navigation, data acquisition and industrial controls. He also served in the military with three tours in Iraq.
“Phillip’s previous experience with a wind tunnel provides important insight, and Kevin’s work with the NASCAR Busch series is just the kind of background we’re looking for,” said Jeffrey Bordner, Windshear Site Manager. “Phillip and Kevin are highly qualified, highly experienced technicians and are welcome members to our growing team.”
Windshear, headquartered in Concord, operates the only commercially available full-scale, single-belt, rolling road wind tunnel in the world. The firm’s clients include top-level motorsports organizations and auto manufacturers.
