My name is Kevin Karpe, and I am the Principal at Diverse Vector Aviation Consulting LLC. I offer aviation expertise, as an Expert Witness and Subject Matter Expert, for services connected to aviation and air traffic control, in support of aircraft accident litigation. I have been retained by several law firms across the country, supporting them and their clients in a variety of cases, including pariticipating in the investigation of the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash on behalf of the families' legal team . Besides providing Expert Witness services, I am currently performing work as a Subject Matter Expert for companies that provide research and development for Unmanned Aerial and Urban Air Mobility Systems, and the integration of these systems into the National Airspace System. I am also under contract for research and analysis on airport noise issues that impact communities in Southern California, airport operations, and new construction projects near airports. I was an employee of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Air Traffic Organization for 31 years, and am a Veteran of the US Navy. I was a frontline FAA Air Traffic Controller and Supervisor for many years before I was selected for Regional Headquarter Staff and upper managerial positions. My career spanned many roles and diverse facilities with my final position being the Assistant Air Traffic Manager/Staff Manager at Southern California Terminal Radar Approach Control (SCT). SCT is the busiest facility of its type in the world, responsible for all 51 airports, including all military airports, in Southern California. As the Assistant Air Traffic/Staff Manager of SCT, I was personally responsible for 5 support departments: Training, Quality Assurance, Planning and Requirements, Airspace and Procedures and Human Resources/Administrative Support. I oversaw the facility implementation of many of the systems that are currently in use such as the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement Systems (STARS), procedures for Wake Turbulence Recategorization, and Southern California Optimization of Airspace in the Metroplex (OAPM). I would very much like to speak to you about providing my services in support of your members and their clients. Please contact me at your convenience. Sincerely, Kevin Karpe
