Steve Arms received his Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Vermont in 1983. Immediately after grad school, he founded MicroStrain, Inc., a Vermont based manufacturer of micro-displacement sensors, miniaturized inertial sensors, and wireless sensing systems for tracking and reporting structural component loads and strains. As President and CEO of MicroStrain from 1987-2012, Steve was awarded 59 US patents, published over 25 journal articles, and contributed to over 50 abstracts in areas of advanced instrumentation, wireless sensing, and energy harvesting. The Lord Corporation acquired MicroStrain in a successful asset transaction in September of 2012.
Currently working as a consultant, Steve's planning his next entrepreneurial venture.
