Dr. Chiman Kwan
Chiman Kwan received his BS (honors) with major in electronics and minor in mathematics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1988, and MS and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1989 and 1993, respectively. He is the founder and Chief Technology Officer of Signal Processing, Inc. and Applied Research LLC, leading research and development effort in real-time control, chemical agent detection, biometrics, speech processing, image fusion, remote sensing, mission planning for UAVs, and fault diagnostics and prognostics.
From April 1991 to February 1994, he worked in the Beam Instrumentation Department of the SSC (Superconducting Super Collider National Laboratory) in Dallas, Texas, where he was heavily involved in the modeling, simulation and design of modern digital controllers and signal processing algorithms for the beam control and synchronization system. He later joined the Automation and Robotics Research Institute in Fort Worth, where he applied intelligent control methods such as neural networks and fuzzy logic to the control of power systems, robots, and motors. Between July 1995 and April 2006, he was the Vice President of Intelligent Automation, Inc. in Rockville, Maryland.
Over the past 25 years, Dr. Kwan has served as Principal Investigator/Program Manager for more than 111 competitively selected projects with total funding more than 35 million dollars from various government agencies and private companies such as Ford, Motorola, Boeing, Honeywell, and Stanford Telecom. He has 14 issued and pending patents, 50 invention disclosures, 80+ journal papers, 200+ conference papers, and 350+ technical reports. He received numerous awards and recognitions from NASA, US Navy, US Air Force, and IEEE.
