Cobra Systems and ATEQ Aviation announced the addition of Denis Sichik to their team as mechanical design engineer. Sichik will be responsible for the engineering of new pitot and static adapters as well as improving on designs already in use. Sichik is a hydraulic/mechanical engineer with more than eight years of progressive experience in the design of electro-mechanical equipment, hydraulic and pneumatic systems/components, wastewater treatment systems, HVAC equipment, and metal constructions.
Most recently Sichik was the R&D mechanical engineer at Watergen, an Israeli company producing machines that extract clean drinking water from the air. In this role, he was responsible for the hydraulic/pneumatic system design and development of new machines from conception to birth. His latest and most successful project was the first-ever atmospheric water generator, incorporated into the FORD F-150, generating drinking water directly in the truck cab.
“Ateq has a very broad line of test equipment in its portfolio, so we knew that it may be difficult to find a mechanical engineer with both the experience and motivation to take on the wide range of tasks that may be part of the day-to-day operations here,” Patrick Brousseau, ATEQ Aviation and Cobra Systems sales manager says. “After our first interview with Denis, our entire team was very happy with Denis’ enthusiasm for product development and fearless approach to the problem solving that comes along with this position. After just a short time on the job Denis is already proving to be a great addition to the team, and we look forward to watching Denis continue to grow into his role within the company.”
Sichik enjoys traveling and extreme sports. He resides in Arlington Heights, Ill. with his family.
