Andrew Kostrzewski, Ph.D. Senior Vice President, Chief Engineer Read Bio
Dr. Andrew Kostrzewski, Senior Vice President, Strategic Technologies, and Chief Engineer, has over 25 years of experience in compression, signal processing, communications, authentication, and optoelectronic hardware development. He received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the City University of New York in 1990 and a B.S. in telecommunications in 1979. He has strong expertise in soft computing, fuzzy logic, and neural networks. Recently, much of Dr. Kostrzewski's effort has concentrated on development of a new approach to data compression based on intelligent frame management algorithms compatible with MPEG 1, MPEG-2, and MJPEG and also making use of wavelet compression. This data compression approach is proving to be enabling technology for a broad variety of applications. He is the inventor of intelligent frame management and object-oriented low-bandwidth compression, which are critical to next-generation portable video communications. Dr. Kostrzewski manages projects for surveillance, battlefield wireless communication, flight data recording, and smart munitions, and for encryption of wireless communication. He directed the development of the first truly secure authentication system based on quasi-random encoding, and is leading POC's development of a next-generation crash survivable flight data recorder for analog and digital incident/structural data/engine monitoring and video data. Among his recent accomplishments is the development and demonstration to the White House Staff of an electronic dogtag for storing medical records, the Wireless Personal Information Carrier. He is also developing wireless digital download modules of this recorder for the Navy. Dr. Kostrzewski has served as Principal Investigator and Project Manager for more than 40 government and commercial contracts. One of these, "A Highly Robust, Self Correcting Fuzzy Controlled Neural Network for Sensor Fusion," was awarded one of five U.S. Army SBIR Phase II Quality Awards in 1998. He has published more than 100 research papers and has nine patents granted and three patent applications pending.
