This workshop will be led by Gavin Dyer, Chief Systems Engineer, Westford Tactical Reconnaissance Systems, UTC Aerospace Systems. With over thirty years experience, he has conceived, designed and implemented high performance imaging systems for a wide range of manned and unmanned platforms. He has a BS in Electronic Engineering from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, an MBA from Warwick Business School and is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the UK Institution of Engineering & Technology. He is currently a Technical Fellow in the Advanced ISR Systems business of UTC Aerospace Systems, bringing to the role a strong background in the definition, design, development, test and evaluation of airborne Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems and their associated planning, data processing, exploitation and dissemination capabilities. He began his career in the Electro-Optical Surveillance team at GEC Marconi, responsible for the design and development of leading edge digital infra-red sensors and imagery processing systems for fast jet aircraft and armored ground vehicles. After eleven years successfully developing capabilities in this area he joined the Defence Research Agency (now QinetiQ), playing a key role in the successful growth of their ISR Systems business and the development of the UK airborne ISR capability. He joined Goodrich (now UTAS) in 2004 to lead the integration and flight trials of a long range stand-off electro-optical imaging sensor on the Predator B unmanned aircraft, demonstrating real time platform downlink and intercontinental reach-back connectivity for time sensitive targeting operations. He subsequently transferred to the US organization where he has been responsible for strategic plan development and the implementation leadership to capture wider market opportunities on UAVs, business jets and other aircraft types, as well as the development of new SAR/GMTI radar and Multi-Spectral imaging capabilities to broaden the product portfolio.
