In 1989, Reed D. Copsey, Sr. (degrees from MIT and Caltech) formed C Tech Development Corporation, a research and development company, which has been focused on the development of C Tech’s Earth Science software, Earth Volumetric Studio. C Tech’s software is recognized around the world for environmental, oceanic, archaeology, mining and geologic data analysis and visualization. Mr. Copsey has been involved in three-dimensional data analysis and visualization since 1977 on projects that range from gold mines, superfund sites and earthquake generated subsidence to analytically guided explosives technology for naval countermine weapon systems as well as other fields of explosives technology. One of those projects was the first successful gun-fired air-launched projectile capable of supercavitating underwater flight in over 20 years of Navy research. It was featured in the May 2001 issue of Scientific American magazine.
In 1995, C Tech was separated into two corporations C Tech Defense Corporation which pursued C Tech’s defense technology and C Tech Development Corporation which is exclusively involved in Earth Sciences. In 1997 Mr. Copsey sold C Tech Defense Corporation to allow him to focus exclusively on C Tech’s Earth Science software.
Mr. Copsey’s role as President and CEO of C Tech Development Corp. includes managing the corporation, architecting the development of C Tech’s software products and managing large consulting programs for clients all over the world. As of 2006, C Tech has hundreds of customers and thousands of users on all continents of the world. Our Earth Science software is the gold standard for environmental engineering projects, geology, geophysics, oceanography, archaeology, mining and many other fields.
