Randall K. (Randy) Curey is a senior systems engineer at the Navigation Systems Division of Northrop Grumman where he is responsible for developing, calibrating and testing inertial measurement units, inertial navigation systems and transfer alignment systems. He has 31 years of experience in the inertial navigation field and has worked on DTG, RLG, ZLG, FOG and MEMS based IMUs and INSs. Randy holds a BS in Electrical Engineering from Valparaiso University and a MS in Engineering Management from California State University of Northridge. Randy has authored several papers. He has a patent for a motion and trajectory data generator for a multi-gimbaled rotating platform. He has a patent pending for a partitioned executive structure for real- time programs. Randy has been a member of the IEEE for 32 years. He has been a senior IEEE member for the last 12 of those years. He is a member of the AESS and a member of the IEEE Standards Association. Randy has been actively involved in standards development since 2001. He is the Chair of the Gyro and Accelerometer Panel; a position that he has held for the past 10 years. The Gyro and Accelerometer Panel is a technical panel of the AESS, which is chartered to “create standard terminology, specification formats, and test procedures for, and to promulgate understanding of components and systems for detection or measurement of linear or angular motion.” Randy has been an active supporter of the IEEE/AESS Position, Location, and Navigation Symposium for the past 12 years. He has participated as an attendee, a presenter, a session chair and most recently as a track chair. Randy received the President’s Leadership Award from Northrop Grumman in 2004 for technical excellence. He received the Distinguished Engineering Achievement Award from The Engineer’s Council of Southern California in 2011 “for distinguished contributions in the development, design, integration, and test of multi-function inertial and GPS navigation systems, and for commitment to standards development benefiting the engineering community.”
