John Curlander

Co-founder and CEO
John has had a successful career as a scientist and entrepreneur. His passion for mapping was evident at an early age when he led the data processing team at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in mapping the planet Venus in the '90s. At that time, the Venus image map was actually more complete than any map of the earth. John went on to establish Vexcel Corporation as a worldwide leader in mapping and remote sensing. As President and CEO, he led the company to develop satellite ground stations, 3D mapping software and aerial photographic cameras. Vexcel was ultimately bought by Microsoft to become the core of its on-line mapping service. After a number of years as a General Manager at Microsoft working on mobile technologies and cloud services for retailers, he joined Boulder Ventures as an EIR where the initial ideas for Pindrop were formed.

Dr. John Curlander

Internationally recognized for his work in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems and data processing, Dr. John C. Curlander is the General Manager for Microsoft's Public Sector Product Group, a newly established division within Microsoft with the charter to develop products and related services designed specifically for public sector customers. This group complements Microsoft's nearly 20,000 person public sector services team to provide comprehensive information and communication technology (ICT) capabilities that meet the demanding requirements of the public sector.
From 1980 to 1992, Dr. Curlander worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA, where he became responsible for all SAR ground system activities including SAR signal processing research and development, and radar science applications. His research efforts have led to many of the operational techniques currently used in today's SAR processors and has received numerous awards for his contributions from organizations that include NASA and IEEE.
In 1992, Curlander accepted the position of President and CEO of Vexcel Corporation in Boulder, Colorado. In this role, he led the company to significant growth with an increasing emphasis on satellite ground systems, photogrammetry and radar signal processing. The innovative technologies developed at Vexcel under his leadership led to the acquisition of the company by Microsoft, a deal which was finalized in May of 2006.
Following the acquisition of Vexcel Corporation by Microsoft in May, 2006, Dr. Curlander served as General Manager of what is now known as Microsoft Boulder. In this role, Dr. Curlander oversaw the business unit to ensure best execution of the vision that Microsoft has for the group's role in the success of Virtual Earth.
Dr. Curlander received the B.S.E.E. (with honors) and M.S.E.E. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder, CO in 1976 and 1977, respectively. He received an M.S. in Biomedical Engineering and a Ph.D. degree jointly in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California in 1980 and 1985, respectively.
