About Dewey Electronics – a Long History of Delivering Innovative Power Solutions
Since 1955, Dewey Electronics has been the leading resource to the U.S. government for innovative power solutions for some of the toughest applications and environments. Our mission has always been to solve complicated power problems so our customers can operate more efficiently and safely. This is most often on the battlefield or other military theater, when users need a highly reliable power source with excellent system availability.
That reliability is backed by our expertise in engineering, system design, and full power integration, providing our customers with the exact solutions they need for power generation, power distribution, and energy management.
Decades of pioneering power system design
Dewey Electronics was founded as a systems-oriented research and development organization that designed and built electronic and electromechanical systems for the U.S. Navy and Air Force.
Throughout the years, Dewey has made acquisitions to grow and diversify our product lines and capabilities. These include the Pitometer Log Corporation (measurement equipment used onboard naval vessels) and the Avion Electronics Corporation (radar and microwave systems). Our ongoing acquisition plans enable us to expand our offerings, extend product lifespans, and better serve our customers.
A proven partner to the U.S. government
Generating superior power solutions
As long-time proven experts in power system integration and field equipment design and manufacture, we solve complex power problems, transforming it into our customers’ greatest asset. Dewey designs, manufactures, and integrates power generation, power distribution, power management, and energy storage components for mobile platforms and hybrid military systems for use in austere military environments.
Dewey’s field generators—including our highly portable INI Power line—are changing the power game for our armed forces and corporate clients who understand the importance of power availability when and where it matters most. Our team ensures that the military generators you deploy from Dewey Electronics will perform with superior tactical integrity.
Leading research and development in the power field
Our research and development team members are responsible for developing and engineering advanced control systems for generators, battery monitoring/charging, fuel cells, and fuel reformers. They also develop a range of custom solutions to meet extraordinary challenges in the field.
Our research and development roots are still strong, expanded by decades of engineering and manufacturing of military power systems on land, sea, and air. Our goal is to always provide the highest-quality, innovative power and energy systems for the battlefield environment, where we believe the simplest tool—even for the most complex circumstances—is the most reliable and often the best.
Chief Executive Officer
After graduating magna cum laude from Duke University, John applied his degrees in computer science and fine arts as a software engineer at GTE Government Systems. where he worked on military tactical phone systems. He later worked at Symmetrix as a management consultant in the insurance and manufacturing sectors. Over time, John became an independent consultant with such clients as Lucent Government Solutions, Network Systems, and Farm Credit Financial Partners.
After the unexpected loss of Dewey Electronics’ founder in 2002, John stepped in as President and Chief Executive Officer. He established an internally and externally funded R & D capability that would develop the better subcomponents needed for compact and person-portable power systems. This technology and expertise led to the company’s successful lines of ultra-reliable hybrid power systems. John oversaw the introduction of additional product lines and technology via two key business acquisitions: Goodman Ball Incorporated and INI Power Systems.
In his free time, John is involved in education reform, currently sitting on the board of The Collaborative Classroom. This non-profit provides materials and professional development to teachers to enhance their effectiveness, and to help students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. He has also been seen attempting to write science fiction.
