Dr. Weinstein has worked at Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) for 23 years where he has served as Chief Technology Officer, Technology and Advanced Systems. He is an SAIC Technical Fellow.
For the past 20 years, he has led technology development for air defense radar systems with emphasis on signal processing enhancements to counter advanced aircraft and cruise missile threats in the presence of severe terrain clutter and advanced jamming techniques. Dr. Weinstein’s work has supported several US government agencies that work to transition his research into a variety of platforms including ground processing stations, manned aircraft, unmanned air vehicles, and lighter-than-air platforms.
Earlier in his career, Dr. Weinstein was Vice President for Measurement Science at System Planning Corporation, responsible for the development of signal-processing techniques used in SPC’s line of low observable RCS measurement systems and for the field operations supporting these systems.
At SRI international, as director of the SRI Center for the Analysis of Public Services, he was responsible for developing and expanding a program of system analysis for the law enforcement and local government communities. He directed major projects for the cities of Miami, FL, and Edmonton, Alberta, to help them plan development of new police facilities including buildings and teleprocessing. . He also directed a study for the US Congress on the potential impacts of the National Crime Information Center, a nationwide information network administered by the FBI, providing rapid access for law enforcement to files on stolen properties, outstanding warrants and criminal histories. The sometimes dubious quality of data in these files, combined with the potential for misuse of the information, raised many questions, which were addressed in the study.
Dr. Weinstein is an IEEE Senior Life Member and a member of AESS, Signal Processing Society, the Antenna and Propagation Society, and the IEEE Standards Association. He is a member of the AESS Radar Systems Panel and has been active in Radar Conference activities, including:
• Technical Review Committee, Session Chair – Maritime Surveillance - 2010 IEEE International Radar Conference
• Technical co-Chair: 2005 IEEE International Radar Conference
• Paper Selection Committee, Session Chair - SAR Processing Techniques - IEEE Radar Conference 2004
• Treasurer : 2000 International Radar Conference
• Annual Adaptive Sensor Array Processing Workshop– Technical Committee 2005-2007
• AESS Associate VP for Conferences 2005-2008
Dr. Weinstein is serving his third term on the AESS Board of Governors and is the VP for Education, responsible for the Online Tutorials program. In this role he has expanded the Distinguished Lecturer program, with the goal of increasing the program’s international presence. In 2011, AESS DLs were held in the UK, Singapore, South Africa, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, China and the USA. He also has also expanded the AESS Video Tutorial program, which makes web-based tutorials available to members without charge. Current topics include radar, GNSS, Signal Processing and stealth technology.
