K. Hintz Professional Experience


Sep 87 to Present: Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, George Mason University. Graduate and undergraduate teaching in Image Processing, Digital Design, Computer Engineering, and VHDL. Research in evolving neural networks, sensor scheduling and management, embedded computers, and image processing. Member of Center of Excellence in C3I. Designed and established Bachelor and Masters in Computer Engineering Degree Programs at GMU which were approved by SCHEV June 1998 and 1999, respectively.

Summer 89: Battelle Summer Faculty Research and Engineering Program researching measures of infrared automatic target detector/cuer performance for the Army Night Vision and Electro-Optics Laboratory, Ft. Belvoir, VA.

Dec 86 to Aug 87: Naval Surface Weapons Center, Dahlgren, VA (NSWC). Developed methods for the statistical analysis of multi-band, radar sea-clutter data taken in February 1987.

Mar 85 to Dec 86: NSWC. Classified radar signal processing project.

Apr 86 to Aug 87: Adjunct professor for VPI & SU teaching EE4590, Statistical Pattern Recognition, and EE2500, Intro to Computer Engineering at Dahlgren Campus.

Jan 84 to Mar 85: NSWC. Provided continuing consultation services to the SEAFIRE (Shipboard Laser Designator) Program Manager concerning LOS Stabilization and Control.

Dec 83 to Nov 84: NSWC. Designed and supervised the development of the all digital tracking mount control system for a NATO Research Study Group (RSG-8) millimeter wave propagation experiment. The system consists of a cooperative dual microprocessor system; one performs the dual axis control function and the other interfaced to the operator and other NATO participants.

Jun 83 to Dec 84: NSWC. Investigated control aspects and observables of Charged Particle Beams for Navy Applications.

Jan 80 to Dec 83: NSWC. Conducted Independent Research (IR) in sequencing methods for data acquisition by a multi-target tracking radar.

Aug 78 to Dec 79: Full-Time Advanced Study at the University of Virginia with major areas automatic control, digital design and communications.

Jan 75 to Aug 78: NSWC. Conceived of, designed and built two projects for the real-time computer analysis of electronic warfare signals. Integrated these two concepts into one unit which became the AN/ULQ-16 (An upgraded version of this sytem, the Condor Systems SP-2060 and SP-160 Pulse Processors, is still available and in use in the fleet with over 900 units having been manufactured).

Jul 72 to Dec 74: NSWC. Designed and built an Off-Boresight Radar Tracker for reducing multipath tracking errors. Designed and built the control system for the Lightweight Intermediate Caliber Gun System. Made improvements to and deployed an electronic warfare processor for the reception and analysis of unintentional, wideband noise from non-cooperating targets.

Jun 67 to Jun 72: U. S. Navy. Designated Naval Aviator; Stationed 3 years Rota, Spain flying Electronic Warfare Reconnaissance with Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron Two (VQ-2); designated Electronic Warfare Aircraft Commander in EC-121 and EP-3E aircraft. Clearances: TS/SBI, SCI.
