1972 – Present, President of Private Company
Consulting on optical sensing, display & control, sensors, signal processing (digital & analog), optical devices, optical & electronic instruments, optical systems, science and technology and intellectual property disputes. Company provides a full range of services including consulting on intellectual property disputes, contract development, feasibility, turn-key systems, system integration, computer control and software as well as technical planning, project reviews, troubleshooting and related services. In-house resources include digital data acquisition; computer output to sensors, display, electronics, and control; digital/optical signal processing, recognition; software, and proprietary systems and programs for hardware and software development.
Expert 1213 Associates have developed a proprietary system that modifies the optical signal before the light reaches an electronic camera or photodetector, before signal processing and before rejection decisions. It exploits optical variations arising from changes in materials, structure and processing to enhance signal-to-noise or optical contrast. It eliminates background images & produces signals from critical features only.
1965 - 1972
