Clean water is now one of the world's most precious commodities, enshrined by many countries as a basic human right. We design and implement tried and tested devices, equipment and systems in large municipal and multi-regional implementations, while at the same time stay on the cutting edge by exploring and testing new technologies - such as air-water generators, nanofiltration systems, entire circular economy programs.
From very-large-scale-integrations, such as the National Communications System for the Government of the Philippines, to industrialization/commercialization of basic research, such as work done for the US TSWG (Technical Support Working Group), Headway USA has decades of design and implementation experience both in the US and internationally.
With an accelerated global population growth exacerbated by consumption habits, there is an immediate need for countries to adopt waste management technologies to mitigate the consequences of climate change. We lead the design and implementation of Waste-To-Energy technologies diverting waste into clean energy with active projects in Asia and Africa. The implementation process we handle includes planning, engineering, procurement, contract management, and funding.
As early as 2005, in the early days of the War on Terror, Headway worked closely with US TSWG - the "Technical Support Working Group" - which was an interagency cooperation between the Department of State and the Department of Defense, aimed at nurturing new technologies and research findings into viable and deployable systems and solutions, to be delivered to the warfighters and first responders. This entailed taking esoteric R&D items, determining their useful properties, funding their commercialization and deployment, in areas such as: ground-penetrating and building-penetrating radar - for search and rescue and hostile urban environments; computer and software protection systems; algorithms to detect hidden messages and communications, as well as their originating devices; IED early detection systems; total space control and monitoring; and many more.
Subsequently, Headway supported several academic and research institutes in their efforts to commercialize their vast libraries of Intellectual Property. This included the University of Illinois system, National Institute of Standards and Technology, several state government agencies, as well as research bodies outside of the US.
Investment and commercialization of diesel engine technology, which improves engine fuel efficiency by 10-15 %, including strategic tie-ins with the Federal Railways Administration (i.e. diesel locomotive engines) and major truck engine manufacturers.
Development of the Kazan Commodities Exchange, an electronic trading platform for petrochemical producers, intermediaries and buyers throughout Eastern Europe.
Hungarian National Strategic Communications Strategy (for the Government of Hungary), in particular with a planned participation at EPCOT (Disney) via Innoventions and a new national pavilion.
Scotland National Development Strategy (for the Government of Scotland), in particular with food and drink vendor business development with EPCOT (Disney) at multiple points of interaction with their resources.
Designed and built part of the telecoms backbone connecting 1,800+ sites. Partnered with SAIC initially for the design phase, then AT&T Network Systems. Main client was the NCC/Office of the President of the Philippines, initial funding by US Trade and Development Agency, then US Eximbank.
Research and development of Tourism Master Plan for the Philippines, followed by demonstration project in Panglao Island, in Bohol province. Tourism estate was established, and exists to this day - with it serving as a model for future developments throughout the country. Main client was DOT directly, funded by Asian Development Bank.
Participation in the buyout, and restructuring of Federal News Service, a national wire service focused on Capitol Hill and Federal Agency coverage, as well as a large subsidiary business called Federal Translation Services, which provides language support to US armed forces worldwide.
Several technology ventures and services primarily aimed towards the support of the war-fighter and first-responder (DOD and DHS programs and clients).
Government National Emergency Infrastructure for Central Region of Ecuador. Comprises emergency communications for the National Police, and an infrastructure support for several coastal states affected by earthquake.
Currently engaged with Cameroon’s Ministry of Water and Energy Resources (MINEE) having set up a funding facility for a high-priority rural water system via US Eximbank funding. Program will provide clean water resources to hundreds of municipalities and villages in every region of the country.
