Malvern, PA, May 21, 2019—Momentum Dynamics Corporation, the global leader in high-power wireless charging for electric vehicles, announced today the appointment of Todd Daniel to their Advisory Board. Mr. Daniel, an advocate of technology innovation and electro-mobility, will serve as a strategic advisor to Momentum Dynamics.
Todd Daniel retired from public transit service in March of 2019 after three decades in the field. During his thirty-six-year career, Todd managed Fleet Maintenance and Facilities and Information Technology teams in Washington State for Kitsap Transit and Link Transit.
During Todd’s tenure with Kitsap Transit and Link Transit, he was instrumental in leading the nation in innovative fast charging, battery electric vehicle projects, including the first-in-the-country 200 kW wireless charger from Momentum Dynamics.
Todd is a U.S. Navy Veteran, and graduate of Olympic College and the University of Washington School of Business.
Momentum Dynamics CEO Andrew Daga said, “Momentum Dynamics is delighted to have Todd join our team. Since we began working with Todd in 2016, we have been increasingly impressed with his deep transit industry knowledge and focus on technology innovation. He has been integral to the deployment of the world’s first successful 200 kW resonant inductive electric bus charger and in making Washington State a primary focus point for electromobility. We are genuinely excited to work with Todd to bring this technology to the world.”
Todd Daniel said, “I am both excited and humbled to be a part of the Momentum Dynamics team—a talented, motivated and dedicated group of individuals that are building the future of wireless vehicle charging. “

About Momentum Dynamics CEO Andy Daga
Andy is the founder and serves as the President and CEO of Momentum Dynamics, the global leader in fast, efficient high-power wireless charging for electric vehicles. Mr. Daga holds degrees in structural and civil engineering, architecture and space science and technology.
Prior to founding Momentum Dynamics, Andy was a leading consultant to the aerospace industry and contributed to the design of the International Space Station solar power array system, the Mars Pathfinder program, and future mission planning studies with NASA and the U.S. Department of Defense.
From 1987 to 2009, Andy was an independent consultant to NASA and major aerospace companies where he worked on advanced mission planning studies and also on specific space programs. His work resulted in the publication of numerous papers that have been incorporated into planning documents by NASA, including its Planetary Science Decadal Survey. He is regarded as an expert on the subject of manned lunar and Martian mission planning. Andy’s work with Lockheed (now Lockheed Martin) in the early 1990s proved the feasibility of using astronaut EVA operations to deploy and retrieve the solar array system on the International Space Station, and on other studies which identified wireless power systems as a means of dramatically reducing weight on large scale space-based power systems.
Through this varied experience over 25 years, Andy has developed a strong capacity to identify engineering talent and manage multidisciplinary engineering and business teams. Andy is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) where he serves on a number of standards committees.
