JRT Founders – 60 Years Experience, 48 Patents, World-Class Domain Expertise
Raymond S. (Ray) Kasevich
CEO and Co- Founder
Ray Kasevich is an expert in electromagnetic science and engineering, particularly radio frequency (RF) and microwave. With 48 U.S. and foreign patents and 50 peer-reviewed papers, he has 35 years experience in advancing the state of the art and applying it in a wide range of military, healthcare, energy, environmental and industrial applications, including radar, military RF and microwave communication systems, high-energy electromagnetic pulse systems, stealth materials, microwave power systems, microwave hyperthermia cancer treatment, oil and gas recovery and environmental cleanup. Most recently has been developing, field testing and patenting technology for oil and gas recovery (e.g. high-power subsurface antenna systems for oil shale recovery, enhanced oil recovery (EOR), oil extraction from drill cuttings), environmental remediation (e.g. TCA remediation in fractured bedrock, PCB removal from mixed radioactive waste, RF-enhanced bioremediation), extractive and industrial processes (e.g. curing cement) and other areas (e.g. agriculture, thermotherapy, medical devices). Prior to founding his own consulting and engineering companies, Mr. Kasevich worked for two years at Westinghouse Microwave Laboratory and for 14 years as Principal Scientist at Raytheon Advanced Development. His clients have included Brown and Root, Chevron, Charles Stark Draper Laboratories at MIT, Environmental Resources Management (ERM), Husky Oil, W. R. Grace, MI Drilling, National Science Foundation (NSF), Texaco, United States Surgical Corp. (USSC), United Technologies (UT), U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Dept. of Defense (DOD), U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE), and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Mr. Kasevich received his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Yale University and studied in doctoral programs at the University of Michigan and MIT.

Jeb Rong, Ph.D.
President and Co-Founder
Jeb Rong is an expert with 25 years experience in high-power engineering, including applying radio frequency (RF) and other electromagnetic technology to defense and homeland security, oil/gas recovery, environmental, and industrial process problems. Originally from Inner Mongolia, Dr. Rong received his doctorate in High-Voltage Engineering from the University of Stuttgart (Germany), emigrated to the U.S., and began working on defense applications, including radar, shipboard systems, standoff radiation detection systems and advanced power systems for electron beam accelerators. Most recently has been developing, testing and implementing RF technology for oil and gas recovery (e.g. electro-fracking of oil impregnated sandstones and RF applications in oil shale, oil sands/carbonates, and heavy oil), environmental remediation (e.g. bio-mass torrefaction), and industrial processes (e.g. concrete dewatering, electrical resistive heating systems). Prior to founding his own consulting and engineering companies, Dr. Rong worked for Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, Energy Sciences, Inc., and KSN Energies, LLC as Vice President of Technology. His clients have included Boeing, Bubble Technology Industries, Burns & McDonnell, Chevron, Charles Stark Draper Laboratories at MIT, Environmental Resources Management (ERM), Los Alamos National Laboratory, Husky Oil, New England Pain and Wellness Center, Raytheon Electronic Systems, U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, U.S. Navy, and X-Tech. Dr. Rong received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University (Beijing) and both his M.S. in Electrical Engineering and doctorate in High Voltage Engineering from the University of Stuttgart (Germany). He is fluent in German, Chinese and English.
John W. McTigue, P.G., LSP
Mr. McTigue is a Principal with The Isosceles Group located in Boston, Massachusetts with over 24 years of experience in assessment and remediation of complex contaminated sites. Mr. McTigue maintains specific technical expertise in assessment and remediation of chlorinated solvents in fractured bedrock and acted as the Principal for the first known application of Radio Frequency (RF) heating to abate a 1,1,1-trichloroethane (TCA) DNAPL source area in situ beneath an active commercial facility. RF heating was applied within a documented TCA DNAPL source area over a three year period supplemented by six years of post-application monitoring to conclusively demonstrate DNAPL source abatement. RF achieved a permanent reduction in dissolved phase TCA concentrations in the TCA DNAPL source area of 99 percent. Permanent source abatement was also evidenced in documented patterns of plume detachment, regression and the absence of impacts to surface water and sediment at downgradient discharge points.
