A Special Seminar on "Science and Technology Overview of the Office of Naval Research"
Join us on Tuesday, March 16, 2004 at 3:00 p.m. in the A.V. Williams Building Room 2460 for a special Clark School of Engineering seminar on "Science and Technology Overview of the Office of Naval Research." Dr. Stephen C. Lubard, technical director-science and technology for the Office of Naval Research is the guest speaker. He has served in this position since August 2003.
Lubard has devoted his career to solving challenging National Security problems. He was most recently the president of S-L Tech, LLC, a high technology consulting and investment company. Previously, he served as chairman, chief executive officer and president of Arete Associates, a defense company he jointly founded and grew to a staff of over 170 highly skilled technical personnel. The business at Arete ranged from the development of basic theories, to support of the Joint Chiefs on National military policy, to the production of hardware and software products. He led the research, development and limited production in the areas of electro-optics (visible and infrared), synthetic aperture radar, towed arrays, laser radars, in-situ sensors, and advanced multi-dimensional data analysis and real-time detection algorithm development. While at Arete, Lubard also led commercial technology developments on fingerprint verification and identification algorithms and software products for realistic dynamic-ocean and cloud scene simulations now in standard use by the movie and television industry.
Lubard founded and served as chairman and chief executive officer of Biometric Identification, Inc. (BII), a commercial company that developed and sold fingerprint verification and identification equipment to the access control and time and attendance industries.
Prior to Arete, Lubard was a program manager at R&D Associates (since acquired by Logicon), where he developed signal-processing techniques for radar backscatter from ocean surfaces. He also managed a DARPA project to detect aircraft-generated sound with submarine-towed acoustic arrays.
In addition to his other accomplishments, Lubard developed computer software to predict the flow field over maneuvering reentry vehicles. This software was utilized to predict the flow field on the U.S. Space Shuttle.
Lubard holds a B.S. in aerospace engineering from Polytechnic Institute of New York, his M.S. in aeronautical engineering from New York University and a Ph.D. in aeronautical engineering from the University of Maryland.
