supplier interview: Dewesoft
TO WHAT DO YOU ATTRIBUTE THE
The company started as software designers
and migrated their solutions into hardware
design because the software catered to
such a different group of hardware
designers, so it was a natural tendency to
design the tools that support their
software. It’s like a back-front development.
Now, our vision is to be the customer’s
first choice in mission-critical test and
measurement equipment created for
maximum effectiveness and with stunning
design. Thanks to our outstanding
reputation and a strong sales network, we
can offer employees many opportunities to
work on exciting projects around the
world. Our products are the result of
working and collaborating with our
customers in nearly every application area
imaginable. We know how you work and
we listen. We’ve been on race tracks, space
shuttle launches, airplanes, and trains.
We understand test and measurement,
your applications, and requirements, and
we make sure to provide the best tools that
will save you time and money.
WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES OF
Our subsidiaries are located in all of the key
markets around the globe and serve as our
main regional sales and marketing offices.
Subsidiaries deliver the highest level of
on-the-ground support through their teams
of engineering experts. Our sales process
can be very technical and tactical, involving
a lot of hands on customer facing
interactions. Having our headquarters
based in the heart of Europe in Slovenia,
which houses all of our R&D and
manufacturing facilities, managing global
time zones with Service and Support can be
challenging. Our R&D offices, testing
facilities, mechanical workshop, production
facilities and marketing and
communications center employees work
crazy hours supporting our customers to
offer our clients on the ground support
across the globe. We have also partnered
with qualified distributors and local sales
agents in each of the countries we work

WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?
I have 20 years as a leader and a strong
record of performance and profitable
growth in dynamic and changing markets,
so I feel confident in my abilities to lead
Dewesoft in managing our sales teams.
With Two previous CEO roles under my
belt in high growth environments
involving battery, energy and storage,
aerospace, defense and space applications
with products operating in harsh
environments, Dewesoft is in good hands.
WHAT DO YOU FIND INTERESTING
ABOUT WORKING IN AEROSPACE?
I have personally been involved with some
of the most advanced aircraft, missiles, and
test systems all over the world. I feel truly
blessed to have worked with so many
incredibly talented people striving to
create the best possible systems to address
emerging and ongoing test and
HOW IS THE MARKET CHANGING?
The test and measurement sector is
definitely on the upswing, with growth
fueled by opportunities across industries
including communications, aerospace and
defense, automotive, consumer electronics,
industrial, energy and medical devices.
Defense spending in the US is growing
again, after multiple years of decline.
Research is also indicating growing
opportunities for aerospace in the Asia
Pacific region as well.
WHICH SECTOR IS USING MORE
ADVANCED TEST EQUIPMENT –
AEROSPACE OR AUTOMOTIVE?
With the complexity of A&D, the
automotive falls slightly second. But, there
are so many advancements in autonomous
validation and verification in automotive,
that trend is accelerating the need for
modular and scalable test solutions.
Aerospace was far ahead for a long time,
but automotive is really catching up.
WHAT OPPORTUNITIES AND
CHALLENGES FACE TEST
With the increase in complexity of
aerospace and defense systems, customers
face challenges in testing, validation, and
verification. This trend is accelerating the
need for flexible, modular, and scalable test
solutions, for which we are ideally
positioned to accommodate.
But, there is no longer a need for you to
invest in several different instrumentation
solutions just to be ready for all your
testing needs. Our products are designed
from the ground up to be universal and
versatile. The same instrument can be used
for many different test and measurement
applications. And all your data will finally
be synchronized and compatible with
WHAT HAS CHANGED THE MOST IN
TEST AND MEASUREMENT IN THE
LAST TEN YEARS?
Software integration has played an
enormous role in changing test and
measurement. The hardware doesn’t
change much, the signal interfacing and
the signals that need to be acquired and
reacquired doesn’t change much. It’s how
the software is handling the hardware in a
real time data infrastructure that is
constantly changing and being optimized
to benefit the people on the ground.
We’ve been very successful at integrating
ultra-fast software with performance that
gives configurable architectures. But being
able to record, store and analyze gigabytes
of data without any performance issues in
real time gives us a significant advantage.
We are one of the fastest software
platforms for test and measurement, even
on basic computers. So whether you operate
a ground station or you are testing or
monitoring a flight, rocket, satellite, or
military vehicle, We offer a single solution
for aerospace and defense testing and
monitoring applications. \\
