Engineering expertise in electricity and electronics.

Serving the legal forum with consulting and testimony.

Mission Statement

When electrical devices and electronic systems are the subject

of civil litigation, criminal charges, or insurance claims,

I support lawyers, judges, litigants, and adjusters

with extensive technical knowledge and with scientific discipline

to explore, examine, and explain the issues involved.


My technical background includes study and hands-on experience in building, maintaining, and analyzing electrical devices and electronic systems such as: radio and radar systems, security and alarm systems, remote control systems, sound and public address systems, computer and data processing equipment, radio and television equipment, automotive electronic systems, tape and digital recorders, cellular telephone systems, and video surveillance systems.

I have contributed to a variety of legal matters all based on electrical equipment and electronics technology including: electric shock, electrical wiring, electrical fire and lightning damage, audio and video recording, radio broadcasting, traffic radar and lidar, electronic control circuitry, cellular phone localization, electronic surveillance, consumer electronics capabilities, automobile control systems, radio and telephone communication, electrical accidents, and industrial machinery. (See “Examples of Forensic Assistance” below.)


I provide site inspections, field measurements, laboratory analyses, test reports, and technical findings, with thorough documentation of results, conclusions, and opinions, and I am an experienced expert witness in the legal forum.

As a practiced technical presenter in high-technology industry, I have also tried to articulate complex scientific constructs and convey their essence for lawyers, judges, juries, and adjusters. Many cases have settled without the need for a trial, as a result of my analyses highlighting the technical nexus and critical characteristics of an incident.

For cases that get to the courtroom I have invariably qualified as an expert in the physics or electronics applicable to the matter. This is due in part to thirty years of full-time employment in the defense and aerospace industry at these firms:

  • Bendix Radio Division, Baltimore MD

  • Sperry Gyroscope Company, Great Neck NY

  • Pennsylvania Research Associates, Philadelphia PA

  • RCA Corporation, Aerospace & Defense Group, Moorestown NJ

  • Computer Sciences Corporation, Integrated Systems Division, Moorestown NJ,

where I studied the capabilities and limitations of advanced systems for detection, tracking, communication, control, radar, sonar, and electronic countermeasures. (See “Professional Experience” below.)

I have formulated and evaluated new concepts on acoustic and electronic warfare, for detection and tracking of moving vehicles, for defense against missiles and torpedoes, and on computer-generated imagery. I am credited with 20 publications in the open professional technical literature, and I have written several hundred formal technical reports bearing government security or proprietary restrictions on their distribution. (See “Technical Publications” below.)


  • Bachelor of Electrical Engineering, University of Florida, Gainesville FL

  • Master of Science in Applied Science, Adelphi University, Long Island NY

I charge a uniform hourly rate for consultation, field examination, technical analysis, report preparation, deposition, or attendance at trial (four-hour minimum). Time for intercity travel is charged at half the time I actually spend in transit.

Reasonable travel or other expenses are to be reimbursed at actual cost. My standard rate applies to all authorized work on a case. If, however, an experts- referral service makes our contact, they may impose a different rate structure.

As with any court expert, my duty is to render an objective scientific opinion on the matter at hand. In particular I can serve as your technical consultant and scientific interface with specialists who speak only in academic jargon. I can help you debunk the unfounded or pseudoscientific claims of your adversary.

I invite attorneys and adjusters to contact me to discuss my possible assistance in resolving your case dealing with physics, electricity, or electronics. I shall inform you whenever my qualifications appear not to be appropriate to your matter.

My office is just east of center city Philadelphia. I can easily travel as necessary to work at your location or at the site of an incident to be investigated.

(Prior to my full-time self-employment as a consultant and forensic analyst in 1999, I worked in high-technology industry. This is my employment resume, in inverse chronological order.)

Computer Sciences Corporation, Moorestown NJ (12 years). Mr. Boyell was program manager on the concept definition phase of an electronic warfare (EW) system in which CSC was responsible for the software that performs control and processing, in association with equipment being developed by other firms for electronic sensing and electronic attack. In this capacity he coordinated all CSC technical activity and served as the link with other team members and the Navy customer. Critical aspects of this work were integration of the EW system with the shipboard combat system, the optimal extent of automation to achieve performance under stress environments, and system acceptance of technology improvements over its lifetime. Before that concept definition award he was a principal contributor to CSC’s understanding of the emerging EW requirements, in particular the integration of the EW system with a host combat system such as the AEGIS computer-controlled shipborne weapon system.

At CSC Mr. Boyell’s assignments were in technical and business development, dealing with requirements, technology, and program planning, including management of IR&D activities on antisubmarine warfare (ASW) and EW. On one project he formulated the system concept and technical approach for a passive (non-alerting) system to detect and track submerged submarines by digital processing of optically received signals. On another project he conducted a study of communications interoperability which explored the variety of incompatible modulation methods, operating frequencies, and coding schemes used by various government agencies.

For an FAA air traffic system he analyzed alternative means for detecting and tracking aircraft and vehicles on airport runways and taxiways. The study included proximity detectors (pressure, infrared, magnetic) and remote sensors (radio emission, radar, optical), dealing with both their technical performance (range, accuracy, consistency) and their suitability for unattended operation in a harsh environment. In connection with this work, he projected the capabilities of a newly developed British system for localization of moving vehicles relying on their individual measurement of relative phase from multiple radio transmitters. This system is unique in allowing the reference transmitters to be emitters of opportunity not necessarily connected to or cooperating with the vehicle location system itself.

For a Coast Guard waterways management system, he evaluated modern electronic methods of performing automatic dependent surveillance by which ship positions are continuously updated at a central site. This involved study of navigation by global positioning system (GPS), interconnection of GPS receivers with digital selective calling radios, onboard and remote data processing for performing ship tracking, and conformity of newly available products for these purposes with internationally accepted signaling formats and protocols.

RCA Corporation, Moorestown NJ (13 years). As a member of a staff operating at the Aerospace and Defense Group level, he anticipated naval system requirements, analyzed alternative technical approaches, formulated applied technology objectives, and developed advanced system concepts applicable to Navy requirements. He defined independent research and development projects and developed business plans for penetration in this field oriented toward both surface ships and submarines.

In this activity Mr. Boyell developed a new technique for detection and tracking of torpedoes. This work involved threat recognition, acoustic signal processing, and system analysis, and formed the basis for several RCA contracts with the Navy on advanced torpedo defense systems for surface ships.

Working with DARPA, independent consultants, and RCA advanced computer personnel, he formulated the concept which became the ‘advanced autonomous array’, a self-deploying ASW system featuring a passive acoustic sensor array with in-buoy signal and data processing, to effect an off-ship means of submarine detection and tracking.

Pennsylvania Research Associates, Inc., Philadelphia PA (11 years). Vice President – Performed contract research and consulting on radar and sonar system design, computer applications, signal processing, real-time simulation, communications, and electronic/acoustic countermeasures. He directed projects for government and commercial sponsors.

His work on storage and retrieval of cartographic data provided the foundation of real-time displays of synthesized imagery. He developed compact digital representations of contour maps, studied new polynomial and polyhedral methods of reconstructing 2- and 3-dimensional functions, and devised hierarchical organizations of memory and computation to produce textured displays by calculating video data profiles and raster portrayals in real time.

Sperry Gyroscope Company, Great Neck NY (3 years). Computers and sonar.

Bendix Radio Division, Towson MD (3 years). Television, radio, and computers.

Prior to bachelor’s degree. Radio repair shops, electronics hobbyist.
