Enterprise Architect | Strategic Investor & Technology Innovator
"Enterprise architecture (EA) is the practice of analyzing, designing, planning and implementing enterprise analysis to successfully execute on business strategies."
MoonRaker Associates, founded by Kevin McCarthy, a strategic investor and technology innovator, as well as, an operations and security expert based in Park City UT. Author of several technology patents involving cryptography and an enterprise architect, Kevin maintains equity stakes in, and leadership responsibilities for various endeavors related to CyberSecurity, resilience, and operational environments. Providing a wide range of advice and counsel related to evolving threats in the twenty-first century he is a sought-after discrete resource.
Kevin founded and served as Chairman of the non-profit 501c.3, Friends of Summit County Search And Rescue, www.FSCSAR.org for over four years. FSCSAR is focused on supporting the health, safety, and well-being of the all-volunteer team. The SAR team operates under the statutory authority of the county sheriff and currently consists of 40 members.
Since inception FSCSAR has raised funds which were allocated to acquire critical safety and operational equipment and training for the team. Under his tenure approximately $150K has been invested in excess of county budgeted support.
Spring 2021 Kevin passed on leadership of the non-profit to further the development of MoonRaker, LLC.
Based at NASA/Kennedy Space Center FL, Mr. McCarthy is a Founding Member of the International Association of Certified ISAOs (IACI) 'Global Cybersecurity Resilience Council', providing executive leadership expertise supporting Space Critical Infrastructure protection
The Global Cybersecurity Resilience Council (GCRC), led by the private-sector, enables trusted open dialogue, critical insight, and thought exchange linking the public- and private-sector to accelerate operationalizing cybersecurity resilience within and across critical infrastructure sectors, sub-sectors, government, public-safety and law enforcement, academia, and other communities of interest.
Mr. McCarthy co-founded the cyber tech startup company 7Tunnels Inc. in 2014 and served as COO / Director until fall-2018. The company specializes in quantum-resistant non-mathematically based encryption technology.
As an author of technology patents involving cryptography and an enthusiast for the system Kevin maintains an equity stake in 7Tunnels. He designed the architecture to secure communications channels between business jets, their principals and corporate home base, as well as expanding organically throughout corporate infrastructures.
His extensive global experience in operations, transportation, national security, and counter-terrorism were integral to 7Tunnels engagement throughout a wide range of corporate opportunities where maintaining data integrity has become the Holy Grail.
Kevin is co-inventor on
several four patents architected to produce a Post-Quantum Cryptography system, these most recently issued greatly increases overall security of operations;
US Patent #10,003,457, Random Cipher Pad Cryptography issued June 19, 2018
US Patent # 10,637,649, Random cipher pad cryptography issued April 28, 2020
Systems and Methods for Secure Communication Using Random Cipher Pad Cryptography
United States Patent 11,082,211 McCarthy, et al. August 3, 2021
Systems and methods with multiple different modes for bidirectional data transfer of messages encrypted with Random Cipher Pads (RCPs) are disclosed. A direct mode is from one single endpoint to another endpoint in a peer-to-peer fashion. A throughput mode may be configured as a communication between endpoints with a cryptographic data server (CDS) managing communications and additional encryption between the endpoints. The CDS further encrypts the messages such that there is a peer-to-peer encryption between the source endpoint and the CDS and a different peer-to-peer encryption between the CDS and destination endpoints. The throughput mode may also be configured as a broadcast communication between a sender and multiple destinations, each with its own different RCP encryption. A router-to-router mode may be thought of as a specific type of peer-to-peer transfer where the peers on each end are routers, servers, Virtual Private Network servers, and gateways rather than user endpoints.
Captain McCarthy has over 33 years of experience flying US military and commercial aircraft, his final command was the B-777 in worldwide operations. As a Director in the Air Line Pilots Association International (ALPA), he created and led the industry’s first Office of Intelligence & Emerging Threats.
He was also was instrumental in establishing the Federal Flight Deck Officer program for the Transportation Security Administration, Department of Homeland Security, and served in the first cadre of sworn officers to go on duty protecting US airliners.
Kevin McCarthy has been an advisor to the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security; the US House of Representatives Select Committee on Homeland Security and The White House. In the private sector he has been intimately involved with developing intelligence businesses and operational deployment of aviation assets in conflict zones and developing regions for various clients.
Captain McCarthy authored the Aviation Security portion of "Counterterrorism: Bridging Operations and Theory" - A Terrorism Research Center Book published in 2015;
He was a consulting subject matter expert on the project: "Operational and Business Continuity Planning for Prolonged Airport Disruptions", a report published Nov 2013. The (latter) project for the Airport Cooperative Research Program was sponsored by the FAA and managed by the National Academies through the Transportation Research Board;
The Heritage Foundation engaged Kevin as a contributor to the report "Maritime Security: Fighting Piracy in the Gulf of Aden and Beyond", June 2009;
The American Committees on Foreign Relations have Kevin on their distinguished speakers list as a guest lecturer on issues of global security operations.
