Darin Dunham is a Systems Engineer Principal with Lockheed Martin Corporation. Mr. Dunham served almost 10 years in the Marine Corps as an infantry platoon commander, company executive officer, and company operations officer in Hawaii and then as a project officer at the Marine Corps Systems Command. He received his Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School in 1997 and his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 1991. His thesis work focused on the Probabilistic Multi-Hypothesis Tracking (PMHT) algorithm and comparing its performance to the Probabilistic Data Association Filter (PDAF) and Multiple Hypothesis Tracker (MHT) in an underwater, littoral region scenario. His recent work has involved target tracking algorithms and sensors within the Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) Benchmark simulation. Additionally, Mr. Dunham has worked on composite network-level tracking algorithms in various scenarios including air targets with phased-array radars and multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) radars. He has done extensive research on improving the Single Integrated Air Picture (SIAP) across distributed multiple platforms with both the MHT and the PMHT. Mr. Dunham is actively involved with the continued development of the BMD and MIMO Benchmark simulation environments. He currently works for Lockheed Martin and is the leader of the algorithms functional area on the Missile Defense National Team for the Command and Control Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC) program in Huntsville, Alabama.
