Profile Summary

Craig Olson received a BS in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech and a MS and Ph.D. in from the Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester.

Dr. Olson has a multidisciplinary electro-optical engineering background with training in in electrical engineering, semiconductor lasers and diffraction theory of laser emission. He has worked in both the telecommunications and commercial optical products sector wiht emphasis on more traditional optical design and engineering. Since 2005 he has been at L-3 Communications during which time he has designed, modeled, and built several multispectral sensor payloads for airborne- and ground-based imaging.
