Biography

J. Wesley graduated from the Ohio State University, Columbus, USA. During World War II, he worked with the U.S. Army's Air Force where he collaborated on the design and installation of radar stations on the east coast of England. After the war, he worked with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration installing a nationwide network of VHF-OMNI range stations which, for the first time, allowed airplane pilots to determine their location without visual references.

Later, he worked with RCA as engineering section manager on the Bizmac computer, an early business and accounting machine. Mr. Leas also had his own consulting, engineering design and project management company near his home in Rosemont, Pennsylvania, USA.
