Later he was a project manager for the development of the next generation of airport surface detection and collision avoidance systems for the US FAA and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

While at Norden, Frank received an MBA from the University of Bridgeport in 1990 and completed United Technologies’ Program/Project Management Course in 1993. He also received a JD from Quinnipiac College School of Law in 1999.
