This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Doug Cherry was a career Army officer who eventually rose to the rank of Brigadier General. Today he is the CEO of Monterey Technologies Inc, which is called MTI for short. Here’s Doug with more about MTI.


Ever wonder why some products are easy to use and some building simple to navigate while others are a nightmare? Do you want your pilot to have to memorize a litany of emergency procedures, or do you hope she has an intuitive system to use.

MTI is a User Centered Engineering firm headquartered in Park City. We specialize in Human Machine Interaction, and Command & Control Systems primarily in the Defense and Aerospace sectors. Our teams of Human Factors Engineers, User Experience Researchers and Designers, in conjunction with our systems engineers and software developers, create solutions that reduce cognitive load and put you – the user – at the center of everything we do.

I spent 37-years in the Army before joining MTI and was often the victim of brilliant engineer designs that no human could use. At MTI we help define the problem and design solutions that put humans first.


In addition to its work for the United States, for the past twenty years MTI has provided guidance for the Royal Australian Air Force. Find out more at I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
