...
Will Myrick Dr. Myrick joined IvySys Technologies, LLC as Chief Scientist in 2009. Before coming onboard at IvySys, Dr. Myrick was Assistant Vice President and Senior Scientist at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), where he was a Technical Fellow of the Corporation. He was also awarded the U.S. Black Engineer of the Year Award for outstanding contributions to the MASINT community.
In the course of his career, Dr. Myrick has conducted research investigating topics involving Software Defined Radios (SDR) and subspace adaptive signal processing algorithms, and has invented several subspace adaptive signal processing technologies currently being used by government customers. The technologies he developed have redefined performance curves and are critical in supporting some of the most difficult interference mitigation problems supporting mission critical applications.
In addition, Dr. Myrick has authored over a dozen technical publications in the area of subspace adaptive processing as it relates to CDMA Multi-User Detection (MUD), interference suppression, and geolocation. He also holds a patent for a subspace processing architecture that enhances the performance of RAKE receivers in CDMA cell phones. His innovativeness in subspace adaptive signal processing allows him to develop interference suppression architectures that can be applied to a variety of signal processing problems. He is an expert and respected advisor to government customers that rely on his expertise for the success of their programs.
Dr. Myrick received M.S. and Ph.D degrees in electrical engineering from Purdue University and a B.S. in electronics engineering from Norfolk State University.

Wilbur Myrick of SAIC, a world expert in measurement and signatures intelligence adaptive signal processing, is a detective of sorts. He looks for signals that could impact our nation's security.
Myrick, senior signal processing analyst at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) in Northern Virginia, extracts information from signals, including wireless communication. Many of the technologies he developed are being used in the intelligence community.
He spent his childhood picking apart his brother's toys, going to science fairs and devouring electronic magazines in his hometown of Courtland, Va. He did undergraduate work at Norfolk State and received a Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2000.

It allows you to get an idea early if it's what you want to do," Myrick said. Once in college "take your freshman year very seriously," he adds. "Keep things in perspective. You can always have fun later on."
Myrick, who has won numerous research and incentive awards from SAIC, won the 2006 Black Engineer of the Year Award for Career Achievement in Industry at the BEYA Conference in Baltimore. "It's a nice highlight," said Myrick, who mentors junior engineers in his company and recruits for SAIC at the University of Maryland.

Dr Wil Myrick.
Wil Myrick, PhD, is a senior analyst at SAIC.He's doing R&D in advanced adaptive signal processing techniques, working on a number of projects."Our customers come in with problems, and we have a diverse team of physicists, engineers and mathematicians to work on them.We've come up with some very interesting solutions to very difficult problems.The diversity of backgrounds here helps."
Myrick is one of forty or fifty folks in SAIC's core R&D group.Occasionally he also works on proposals.
He started out with a 1993 BS in electronics engineering from Norfolk State University (Norfolk, VA).His 1995 MS and 2000 PhD in EE are from Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN).
Much of Myrick's PhD work was on algorithms to solve adaptive signal processing problems, and that's still his area of focus today.When he completed the PhD he found a job as an R&D analyst with SAIC."It was a really nice fit," he says.
...
Myrick is a nationally recognized expert in advanced adaptive signal processing.In 2006 he received the Black Engineer of the Year award for career achievement in industry.He's also received high recognition from SAIC: an award for outstanding new leaders in 2003, and a 2005 award "for pushing the boundaries of technology."

"My accomplishments reflect the culture and mentoring that the SAIC Technology Research and Integration Business Unit promotes throughout its operations," Myrick says."I am fortunate to have (Business Unit General Manager) Jurgen Gobien and (Operations Manager) Scott Goldstein as leaders who foster innovation as well as diversity."
Myrick and other Black Engineer of the Year award winners will be honored at the Black Engineer of the Year Awards Conference in Baltimore, Md., February 16 - 18, 2006.

Myrick, a nationally recognized expert in advanced adaptive signal processing, is an SAIC senior signal processing analyst recognized by his colleagues as a brilliant researcher and scientist who solves problems others thought "impossible" to solve.He gained this reputation when, on more than one occasion, with limited funds and information, he very rapidly produced successful solutions for the U.S. defense and intelligence communities to challenges generally thought to be impossible to solve.
"Wil is one of our brightest and most innovative young engineers," says Gobien, "and his highly classified work has made major contributions to being able to deal with some of the nation's most important security problems."
Advancing signal processingMyrick, who received his Ph.D. from The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University in 2000, performs work that focuses on advanced algorithm development and evaluation in the areas of communications and radar systems.He develops signal and image processing algorithms to support the development of a wide range of applications and researches new techniques for working with remote sensing data.He invented a processing architecture used in one of our major defense programs, and his research led to the invention of a processor for signal extraction and improvements to an algorithm used for signal processing.
SAIC recognized Myrick's accomplishments in 2003 with a prestigious incentive award for outstanding new leaders, and in autumn 2005, with an SAIC Research, Development, Test and Evaluation Group Scientific and Technical Performance Award for pushing the boundaries of technology through work that contributes to superior program performance.
Mentoring and leadershipThe Career Achievement in Industry award also recognizes Myrick's leadership and mentoring at work and in the community.He uses his ability to express technological concepts to prospective customers and business associates, and he works with junior SAIC engineers to develop and refine their proposal-writing skills.He also recruits for SAIC at the University of Maryland and encourages minority students to pursue engineering careers and advanced degrees.Myrick also finds time to serve his community, working with a program that distributes school supplies to children and with a group that aids families in northern Virginia during the holidays.
Exemplifying SAIC's resolveMyrick's management team members sum up their admiration for his accomplishments, saying, "Dr.Myrick embodies SAIC's tag line 'From Science to Solutions.'"
