Evelyn J. Boettcher
Physicist with a wide array of skills in EO/IR domains.
Evelyn J. Boettcher received her master’s degree in physics from the University of Maryland and a B.S. with honors in physics from the University of Florida. She is currently owner and founder of DiDacTex, LLC and has 11 years of experience in the field of electro-optics. In addition, she has over 15 years of combined research experience: both applied and pure science in industry and academia. She has been head author in respected peer review journals, present findings at international and national meetings and received patents for electro-optical devices (# 6,738,536 & 6,944,372). She has supported the Modeling and Simulations Group at the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate at Fort Belvoir, VA for the Army and she has supported the AFRL’s H-MASINT program in the Automated Human Detection group and COMPASE center in the Sensor group in Dayton, OH.
Dr. Aaron P. Nielsen
Subject Matter Expert for monostatic & bistatic radar and SAR programs.
Dr. Nielsen has over a decade of experience leading teams over a variety of technical efforts and sensing domains. Currently, he support SAR R&D efforts in the Dayton area. Dr. Nielsen has worked on developing navigation and geolocation algorithms for problems ranging from submarine, airborne and spaceborne scenarios. Dr. Nielsen has also worked on motion control problems for radar systems and magnetic detection systems using Inertial Measurement Units ( IMUs ), accelerometers and other sensors for motion compensation problems. He has developed and transitioned algorithms that utilize the native sensors on a platform and delivered reports which detail an understanding of the physical and computational limits of particular sensors. These algorithms and conclusions have resulted in the fielding of demonstration and limited operational systems.
