Profile Summary

Richard D. Teichgraeber, Ph.D., P.E. is an independent consulting engineer; recently retired from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co. He received a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Kansas State University in 1969 and has been a registered professional engineer in Texas since 1980. Rich is a Life Senior Member of IEEE and a Senior Member of SPIE. In college he was a member of Sigma Tau and Eta Kappa Nu honorary societies. He taught an EE laboratory course in his last year of graduate school. His 40 years at General Dynamics/Lockheed Martin were focused in applied research and advanced technology, primarily insertion of new concepts and software technology that aid the pilot in the fighter cockpit. His contributions included: developing simulation software to validate flight programs for the F-111, F-16 and F-35 fighter avionic systems; as Program Manager for three USAF-sponsored R&D programs; management and development of three sensor correlation algorithms for pilot situation awareness on advanced F-16 versions. He collaborated and/or wrote over 25 technical publications regarding power system stability, navigation systems, fiber optic sensors, Kalman filtering applications, avionic simulations and models, artificial intelligence and sensor correlation algorithm applications. His current research interests include: sensor correlation and fusion algorithms, target tracking and identification algorithms and performance metrics for fusion algorithms. He is currently a co-chair of the annual SPIE conference, Signal and Data Processing of Small Targets.

Rich serves as a Trustee of the Kansas State University Foundation and is an active member of several alumni and Foundation groups. Rich presented a Distinguished Lecture to the College of Engineering there in 2006. He is a strong proponent of engineering education and helping students achieve their greatest potential, i.e., by endowing an annual scholarship for seniors in electrical engineering.
