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.

LONDONDERRY - Ken Solinsky, president of Insight Technology Incorporated, was named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2009 national winner in the Distribution and Manufacturing category.
Now in its 23rd year, the awards recognize leaders and visionaries who demonstrate innovation, financial success and personal commitment as they create and build world-class businesses.
Solinsky was honored for growing the company into the largest developer and supplier of night vision and electro-optical systems to the United States military. Solinsky was honored at the Entrepreneur Of The Year gala in Palm Springs - the culminating event of the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum, the nation's most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies. Awards were given in nine additional categories. All Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year winners were selected by an independent panel of judges from approximately 400 regional award recipients.
When Solinsky graduated from Clarkson College in 1971, the economy was ailing and job prospects were poor. Solinsky accepted a civilian position with the US Army in a program where he would be able to earn a masters' degree in industrial engineering and then commit to work for the Army for three years. It was the start of a civil service career lasting 15 years.
Assigned to Fort Belvoir in Virginia, he eventually worked for the Army's Night Vision Lab. After a year as a Sloan Fellow at Stanford University, he was named program manager for night vision devices, one of the few civilians to hold such a position.
After 15 years with the Army, Solinsky had reached a crossroads: spend the rest of his career comfortably working in civil service or take a risk and try something new. He and his wife, Grace, bet their life savings on his dream business.
