We wanted to share a little background with you on the formation of American Tech Supply. American Tech Supply or ATS was founded in 1998 by Gil Hunter in Walnut Creek, CA. Gil Hunter, the founder has over 30 years of telecommunications experience in. Gil Hunter has a wide berth of telecommunications experience including training, system design, equipment installations, equipment and technology sales, fiber optic certifications and training, telephone systems and marketing. Gil Hunter also worked for GTE, Nynex, Pan Am and 5 other successful start ups. Gil Hunter wanted to share how he turned his experience in telecommunications and technology into building websites that provide products and services that drive today's communications needs.
How it all stared was with ARPAnet when in the 1960's Vint Cerf, one of the founders of the Internet was contracted in college along with a few other brilliant visionaries by the
defense community to come up with a system to allow for continued use of worldwide communications in the event of a nuclear attack. It turns out that when an air burst nuclear bomb goes off it blows out all communications circuit boards, form computers, telephones to cars and yes kids- your Ipods and cell phones! In case Washington, D.C was hit by a nuclear EMP blast , NORAD, or any number of cities, the city above which the blast goes off would be literally shut down from cars rail, communications, radio, tv or basically any and all forms of transportation and communications.
It just so happens when nuclear bomb goes off, EMP's, otherwise known as electromagnetic impulses that are formed by a nuclear explosion "fry up"
anything containing semiconductor circuitry. They literally melt by the EMP pulse on the board level, This renders all communications and
equipment based on semiconductors useless and also including anything driven or operated with a semiconductor chip. The end result
was the Internet was developed to allow for continuous communications with remaining sites or cities around potential targets which
were already hit by a nuclear bomb continuing communication with each other. If you survive a blast - get a car or truck built before 1970 when micro-ships started being installed in cars.
The original Intenet was called ARPAnet."
For example if New York or Chicago were hit, then
communication could be routed around any and all means including barbed wire through St. Louis, Miami (Arizona) Honululu , Bangor Maine, Paris or Bangkok. This was a relatively "simple concept" but tough technology to perfect, It took years of effort and our best minds to develop and put it all together. When the Soviet Union fell in1989 we had this "ARPAnet" Internet technology just sitting there until it was released
to the private sector in the early 1990's. This seamless communications protocol originally designed for the military evolved into today's Internet. I
personally met Vint Cerf and asked Mr. Serf about the phrase "Surf The NET" - as it sounded like his last name. At that dinner in 1999 in San Jose, Mr. Cerf just smiled and winked at me. Some
things are best left unsaid.
One of the many functions of the Internet has also been to evolve into a remarkable marketing tool for
day to day means of locating strategic partners, customers and products across the globe. Any company is now able to deliver products
and services to anyone else across the globe who owns a computer. ATS saw the potential in combining the Internet with JIT technology
and began to build a company based on this formula. Instead of warehousing enormous products we reduce our costs and pass the savings
onto the customer. This JIT or "just in time" technolgy" came from Dr. Deming to rebuild Japan aftger WWII. Then Chrysler and Ford adopted it and the rest of most of the USA's leading corporations. Loading up a warehouse with product is nnot smart nor cheap. And if not sold it becomes obsolete. This puts on a cost to everyone from the company to the consumer.
