As part of their ongoing expansion into new markets and territories, San Diego based Chassis Plans has selected Elliot Schroeder as their new Director of Business Development responsible for establishing Chassis Plans as the rugged and custom computer maker of choice for DoD equipment manufacturers, integrators and organizations.
With a tremendous amount of expertise in the defense market place, he is a natural fit for the director of business development role.

In addition to his military experience in Operation Iraqi Freedom, he has served in the US Army Reserve since March 2005 and is currently a Lieutenant Colonel and an Engineer Battalion Commander.
“For over 20 years, Chassis Plans has provided computer solutions that meet the customers’ needs - rapidly and guaranteed. It’s a dynamic business that loves what they do and who they serve,” says Mr. Schroeder. “In addition, our new partnership with Israel’s Aeronautics Ltd provides us with a wider range of proven military grade technologies to market to our US based customers.”
“Elliot was hired due to extensive experience within the UAV market place, his military experience, and his knowledge and experience in working with large scale programs within the Department of Defense,” says Mike McCormack, CEO of Chassis Plans. “Elliot’s operational experience combined with his program management understanding provides Chassis Plans with a new depth of expertise in understanding the warfighters’ requirements and those of our defense customers.”
