Inspired measurement design is what we're about. It's a value wrought from decades of component, instrument, and system design experience. We've tested toys, simulated atmospheric effects of satellite communications, designed unique parts of our nation's radar systems, and designed test systems for the most exciting electronic vehicles on the road.


From our headquarters in the Hill Country southwest of Austin, Texas, we operate on a lean and flexible basis allowing us to adapt to our client's design needs, budget, and schedule.

Inspired Measurement Design

Tom Sanders

Sr. Manager for

Systems Engineering

Mr. Sanders has over 37 years of experience in all aspects of sales, system design, detailed design, implementation and acceptance of functional test systems and simulators.  After receiving his Masters in Electrical Engineering degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Mr. Sanders started his career at Applied Technology designing test equipment for various military radar warning systems.  He was a co-founder of Production Automation in late 1981 and later became its president.  While at Production Automation, he specialized in the design of incoming inspection test systems and systems for testing various modules of both military and commercial aircraft.


After a brief stint at Microunity, where he developed methods for testing GHz speed media-processors, Mr. Sanders opened the northern California office of Symtx.  For 3 years he served Symtx as the General Manager of the CA office and as Systems Engineering Manager for the corporation.  He then became Chief Systems Engineer for Symtx and concentrated on the technical solution for most of Symtx’s largest or most important projects. For the past 8 years, Mr. Sanders has been a consultant working on his own and has specialized in microwave design of simulators and satellite test systems.
