About Fritz Struhsaker

Fritz Struhsaker is the pseudonym of Paul Frederick “Fritz” Struhsaker, a serial entrepreneur, inventor, technology executive, and author of techno-thriller and dystopian short stories and novels.


Born in 1961 in Akron, Ohio, the son of WWII US Navy carrier fighter pilot and later international manufacturing executive,  at age 7, he moved overseas with his parents, spending his early years in the UK, with shorter stints in India, Greece, and Brazil. He returned to Akron for secondary, high school, and undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering at theUniversity of Akron, graduating Suma Cum Laude.

At age 19,  while an undergrad, Fritz was recruited by the National Security Agency. By age 21, he held a Top Secret Security Clearance and started work at the NSA. He would spend the next decade of the  Cold War working in the US Intelligence Community, including assignments as a US Navy nuclear submarine officer and master diver. During this same period, he completed his master’s in Electrical Engineering with honors from Johns Hopkins University.

When the Cold War ended, Fritz left the Intelligence Community to be CTO (Chief Technology Officer) and founding member of Aironet Wireless, a pioneering WiFi technology startup later acquired by Cisco Systems. He went on to found micro-cellular 4G/5G access point innovator Airspan and 4G wireless innovator Raze Technologies.

As his career progressed, Fritz held a series of senior innovation roles as CTO of Broadband at Texas Instruments, VP Silicon Platforms at Motorola, SVP Software Engineering at Comcast NBC Universal, CTO of Dell’s Client Solutions Group, and CTO of Carnegie Technologies (an IoT and Satellite technology startup).

Fritz holds over 70 patents and patents pending in WiFi, 3GPP cellular, networking systems, and cloud client software. An industry expert, he has served as Chairman of IEEE 802.11 WiFi, Vice Chairman of IEEE 802.16 WiMax, and representative to 3GPP cellular standards groups. He is a frequent speaker and lecturer on satellite and wireless technology.

Fritz has served as an expert and fact witness in IP litigation trials and provides technology/management consulting services through Arrasar Partners LLC. For a more detailed biography, see my LinkedIn Bio.

Over his career, Fritz amassed over 5 million air miles traveling, working with customers, co-workers, and International Technology Standards Organizations (ISTO) across the globe. When COVID-19 struck, he finally had the opportunity to begin writing short stories, a technology blog, and a draft of his first book, "The Revelation." The initial book is a much longer story cycle, "The Revelation Saga," a concept drawn from his extensive experience in science, technology, military, and intelligence community, combined with decades of world travel.  


A dedicated outdoorsman, Fritz enjoys hiking, running, boating, and sailing. He and his wife, Mindy, are avid cooks and enjoy entertaining family and friends at their house on Lake Travis in Lago Vista, TX, just north of Austin. They have two grown children who live nearby, a small menagerie of indoor and outdoor animals in their care, along with an eclectic group of friends (also in their care :-)
