Dr. Peter Raeth has been involved with computers since 1975, having completed his first consulting assignment during that year. He currently designs algorithms and heuristics for sensor data exploitation and provides expertise in computing technology for throughput improvement. His experience includes 17 years as an officer, computer research scientist, and scientific analyst, United States Air Force (out of 21.5 years active military service). He also has experience in modeling, simulation, and adaptive automation for passive radar signal identification, cockpit decision aids, computer performance analysis, and datastream analysis. He has gained additional experience in blackbox software test planning, signal analysis, pattern recognition, sensor and data fusion, parallel/distributed/cluster processing, and client/server processing.
A BS in Electrical Engineering was received from the University of South Carolina. This was followed byan MS in Computer Engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology. A doctorate in computer science was earned from Nova Southeastern University. He has given lectures and published articles, papers, and reports on adaptive automation since 1977. He is editor and a contributing author of the book, "Expert Systems: A Software Methodology for Modern Applications", published by the IEEE Computer Society in 1990. He has also given papers and talks on research and development. Additional talks and publication are in the career development domain, most recently acting as editor and contributing author of "Excerpts from the Holy Bible - Offering Fundamental Guidance on Personal, Professional, and Career Development", publised by CreateSpace in 2011.
Of his many awards, in 1991 he earned a research fellowship in neural networks at the University of Dayton Research Institute. In 2000, he was awarded third place in the National Aerospace and Electronics Conference best-paper competition. In 2001, he received Ball Corporations top award, the Award of Excellence. He has twice won the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association's gold medal. His web site on adaptive automation was selected in 1998 as a Science Site of the Week by the National Academy Press.
To help raise the next generation of technologists, Dr. Raeth taught undergraduate and graduate courses in object-oriented concepts at the University of Phoenix as a faculty member from 2002-2008. From there, he went on to become a member of the board at the Greatness Factory Trust, a non-profit based in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe Africa. He is a member of the electrical engineering honor societies Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu, and the community service honor society Omicron Delta Kappa. He is a lay minister at his church and enjoys trap, skeet, and sporting clays. His reading and movie pleasure is science fiction. (A more detailed portfolio is available.)
