    Brilliant interview. Bio is a legend, I love how he explains concepts and tells about his life. You can feel the passion in his words.

    Thanks for putting this together Cap & GR!

    I love how everyone makes a big deal about his RIO time and his Top Gun time. For me, I am most impressed with being a Skipper. I have almost 20 years flying in the Navy, and I have seen a great deal of Skippers. Some thrive, most get burnt from both ends and turnover exhausted. For that alone, Bio has my respect.

    I have a hunch it might have been the same issues like with the AEGIS and the SPY-1A, the OG version was great over the open ocean but over land it could run into highlighting false targets. One example I can recall was a locust swarm appearing as a target. Some radars seem like if they were only developed with the open ocean in mind had some issues when you get land involved.
