Hall of Fame

Inducted May 2013

Victor Dahlgren was among the first to fully describe and develop processes for printing and etching flat conductors on flexible base materials. It was a significant development because it allowed manufacturers to migrate from the more labor-intensive (and more expensive) wire harness. Indeed, Dahlgren was the originator of printed etched flexible cable used extensively in the NASA Apollo Space Program. Dahlgren (1923-2002), a mechanical engineer, joined Sanders Associates in 1952, during which time he received 18 patents. In 1963 he co-founded Electro Mechanisms (later Teledyne Electro Mechanisms), and in 1970 he cofounded TME Corp. (later Chomerics). He retired in 1988 from Lockheed Sanders after 20 years of service.
