Dr. Timothy Faltemier has 12 years of experience in the fields of computer vision, pattern recognition, and biometrics and is a published author of many papers on these topics. As Director of the Intelligent Systems Group at Progeny Systems – which he founded in 2006 under the banner Biometric Systems focused primarily on face recognition – he has led the research and development of multiple major machine vision technologies including the Surveillance, Persistent Observation, and Target Recognition (SPOTR) image/video analytics framework, Solution0 non-cooperative face recognition system, and TurboVideo media ingest toolkit. For the past three years, Progeny has been developing airborne computer vision (ACV) capabilities, with a focus on performing video processing onboard UAS platforms by minimizing the hardware-software footprint for size, weight, and power (SWAP). ACV capabilities have been successfully demonstrated on platforms ranging from small quadcopters to Class 3 UAS. Dr. Faltemier received his BS from the University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign (2003) and a MS from Texas A&M University (2004) before earning his PhD from the University of Notre Dame in 2007, where his research focused on 2D/3D face recognition.
