KENNETH SOLINSKY
President, L-3 Warrior Systems Co-Founder, Insight Technology Incorporated Kenneth Solinsky Ken Solinsky and his wife, Grace, bet their life savings on his dream business and grew it into a world leader in military technology. Founded in 1988, bidding on a government proposal for infrared aiming lights, Insight won that proposal, and Ken has steadily grown the company into the largest developer and supplier of night vision and electro-optical systems to the U.S. military. Ken has been extensively involved in every aspect of the company from the beginning. He remains a hands-on leader. The key to Insight's success is its willingness to postpone near-term profits to invest in new and improved products and processes. With an organic approach to growth, Insight has expanded its highly sophisticated product line to enhance the safety and performance of military and civilian forces. Mr. Solinsky has a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Clarkson College of Technology, a M.S. degree in Industrial Engineering from Texas A&M University, and a M.S. degree in Management from Stanford University, Graduate School of Business. He also holds a Secretary of the Army's Award for Outstanding Achievement in Material Acquisition and two Department of the Army Commander's Awards for Civilian Service. In 1974 prior to founding Insight Technology, Mr. Solinsky joined the U.S. Army's Night Vision Laboratory in Fort Belvoir, Virginia where he held a series of increasingly responsible positions, including Production Engineer, then Project Leader for Night Vision Goggles, Project Leader for Tank Thermal Sights, and Director of Product Assurance. From 1981 to 1982, Mr. Solinsky was assigned to Europe where, as the first Director of the U.S. Army's Night Vision Forward Office, he was responsible for enhancing the Army's ability to use and maintain modern night vision equipment. Upon returning to the United States, Mr. Solinsky managed the Integrated Systems Team at the Night Vision Laboratory and was then appointed Program Manager for Night Vision Devices. In this position, Mr. Solinsky was responsible for the technical requirements and system acquisition of $835+ million of night vision devices. Mr. Solinsky left government service in 1986 and joined Kollsman in Merrimack, New Hampshire as Program Manager for Thermal Systems. In 1988, with the help of his wife and a former colleague, Insight Technology was formed. Insight's founder, Ken Solinsky, now leads Warrior Systems as division President and serves as Warrior Systems sector President.

2015: Douglas M. Hughes, Kenneth (Ken) Solinsky
Mr. Kenneth (Ken) Solinsky began his career at the U.S. Army Night Vision Lab (NVL) in December 1974. As Production Engineer and then Project Leader for the Night Vision Goggle (NVG), AN/PVS-5, he redesigned the eyepiece assembly for reduced weight and enhanced manufacturability, and achieved Full Material Release for the AN/PVS-5, the first NVG to be fielded in large quantities. Subsequently, Mr. Solinsky became Project Leader for the Tank Thermal Sight overseeing its qualification and production start-up. In 1979, he became director of Product Assurance at NVL where he enhanced the stature of this department and led a team that conducted a comprehensive assessment of Night Vision Devices in Europe. In 1981 he became the first Director of NVL Forward in U. S. Army, Europe. There, working with individuals such as MG (subsequently General) Mahaffey at the 3rd ID, and Col (subsequently General) Franks at the 11th ACR, he helped the Army begin to incorporate night vision systems into training and mission planning. Mr. Solinsky returned to the U.S. in 1982 and served as Chief of the Integrated Products Team, responsible for the surveillance and targeting payload for the Aquila unmanned air vehicle program. In 1983, he entered the Sloan Fellows Program at Stanford University and upon returning to Ft. Belvoir in 1984 became Project Manager, Night Vision Devices. In this position he was responsible for the first of what became a series of Omnibus night vision procurement programs. In 1986, Mr. Solinsky left government service for private industry, to see if he could do things better, faster, cheaper; something he had been advocating industry do for the prior 10 years. In Fall 2005, Mr. Solinsky acquired the precision optics capability of Eastman Kodak, and formed Rochester Precision Optics in Rochester, NY. During 2005 to 2009, Insight also developed and produced Fusion Goggles for SOCOM, and a Laser Marker configured as a 45 Cal Pistol. In 2010, Insight won a major Army contract for the Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG). In 2010, Mr. Solinsky sold Insight to L-3 Communications, combining Insight's systems and laser capabilities with L-3's image tube and thermal focal plane array capabilities, to form L-3 Warrior Systems. As President of L-3 Warrior Systems, he instituted changes that led to dramatic improvements in image tube performance and yield at the Tempe, AZ tube manufacturing operation and was instrumental in introducing white phosphor tubes. Further, as President of L-3 Warrior Systems, Mr. Solinsky presided over the nation's preeminent developer and manufacturer of night vision and electro-optical devices for the U.S. military and homeland security first responders.
