Dr. Garry Jacyna
Garry Jacyna (pronounced Jace-na) is a recognized expert in signal processing. His specialties include analytical-based performance studies for DoD and DHS programs. He has developed cutting-edge algorithms to real-world problems, including an acoustic reconstruction tool used in response to the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk disaster, and multi-target sonar detection, tracking, and classification algorithms. Jacyna has also designed complexity-based analysis tools for Marine Corps agent-based simulation models and distributed detection, classification, and tracking algorithms for netted sensor systems. He is currently working closely with DHS in developing system-level decision and performance prediction support tools. He is also developing interchangeable image fusion algorithms for stand-off detection and classification of threats from improvised explosive devices. Jacyna's technical and analytic expertise is applied to a number of government-classified programs, as well as select research programs at MITRE.
