Some of KeyW’s Most Brilliant Minds
Alex directs the development of new ideas and new programs for KeyW’s Sensors and Processing Systems Division. His research and development interests focus on next-generation, extremely high performance sensor systems that converge flexible, software-defined sensors with high-efficiency computing architectures.
Previously, Alex led the design and development of innovative, affordable high-performance computing systems and ubiquitous optical networking devices. He created real-time software for a record-breaking quantum cryptography system, which was 100 times faster than all previously published results. He also built, tested and launched a mass spectrometer into space on a sounding rocket and invented new algorithms for solar wind data analysis. Alex earned his bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland and a master’s in Electrical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.
Alex has published and presented articles in journals and conference proceedings, including those from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Optical Society of America and Military Sensing Symposia. His work has been featured by Slashdot, Information Week and USGIF.
