Dave Tucker

Account Manager

Dave joined Vision Techniques back in 2006 bringing with him an abundance of knowledge in radar technology. As a young man Dave started his career in the merchant navy where he travelled the world working on their radar and radio systems, eventually settling in South Africa employed by their defence force on early warning radar.

After many years abroad Dave returns to the UK as a radar installation engineer installing equipment to commercial fleets before joining us here at VT. Dave’s extensive knowledge of radars has been invaluable in the development of our own detection systems and Dave is the first person our customers call if they have any radar related questions.

When he’s not being our resident radar guru Dave loves the outdoors, taking in the scenery of the beautiful Yorkshire countryside with his loyal four legged friend, he’s also partial to a fast and furious game of squash when time allows. He’s already very well-travelled and his idea of heaven in a cruise to some of the most exotic locations around the world.

We asked Mik what is the best thing about working a VT?  With no hesitation he replied ” We are generally a happy bunch like on big family, we go through thick and thin together.  Like any family we get frustrated, but we always pull together and support eachother to get the job done”

When Mik isnt at work he is enjoying the great outdoors.  He is also a lover of music and you may find him with a beer in hand soaking up the tunes in a cool bar somewhere.
