My sincere condolences to Walters Family and Friends.
I work for General Dynamics Mission Systems in Taunton MA and worked with Walter Hojsak on the Army's Tactical Mobile Internet Service Provider (ISP) System called the WIN-T Increment 2 System. I worked with Walter on several interfaces to this system and even traveled to Ft Hood, Killeen TX where we demonstrated a critical capability to send Satellite Terminal Performance Data back to a Joint Management and Operations System. Walter was critical in these efforts, coordinating the necessary support and getting the right people and information together to make these efforts a success. He was always wonderful to work with and a very contentious engineer who always wanted to do the right thing as good engineers should. His expertise, help, and good nature will sorely be missed.
