Under Bud’s leadership, BTP has evolved into a cutting-edge small business for the overhaul and refurbishment of 15 different Department of Defense systems, and this has resulted in the restoration of over 1,500 communication systems. BTP Systems is also recognized for its development of new hardware designs, support services, and customized test equipment that can be deployed for use in a controlled laboratory environment or the harsh in-theater environment.

Bud and Jill Beaudry have established The BTP Systems Endowed Scholarship, an endowed scholarship at the University for Engineering students. The scholarship was established to help increase awareness in the career field of Radio Frequency/Microwave Engineering, and to encourage students to pursue studies within this growing specialized discipline.
