Arvid is NAEGA Senior Advisor specializing in sampling and meeting product specifications. He attended and gathered information in order to advance understanding of RBS applications to GRNOS.
Following his attendance at the RBS Symposium, Mr. Hawk traveled on to Arlington, VA to brief NAEGA staff and discuss his work plan for the remainder of 2017.
