Kline's work since 1966 has included selecting and validating technologies and managing system rollouts for agencies of the US Government, international corporations and industrial groups. When required by international treaty or domestic laws governing security and/or foreign trade practice, Kline joined companies – usually for a period of less than two years – in order to assure legal compliance. His unclassified publications in coatings, manufacturing technology, and notably in mapping higher cortical – i.e., language and code – functions), mostly in the period 1977-1989, are still referenced and available. His work in artificial intelligence (Tri-Service AI Project, "Senior Researcher," 1984-1987) remains one of the bases of controls systems (computer) design.
Kline has two classified patents plus one formerly classified patent, two newly issued patents (2013, one in welding/joining of dissimilar metals technology, the other in ceramic composite enhanced coatings) and four pending Chinese patents and seven pending US patents.
He lives in Richmond, Texas.
