Kraken Names Chief Scientist

Kraken Robotics Systems has appointed Dr. Jeremy Dillon as the company’s chief scientist.

As an original member of Kraken’s Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) team, Dillon developed the signal processing algorithms for the AquaPix SAS imaging and bathymetry software.

He also invented Kraken’s AquaTrak Correlation Velocity Log, participated in numerous sea trials and was the principal investigator for a multi-year DRDC funded project on repeat-pass interferometry.

“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Jeremy back to the Kraken team,” said Karl Kenny, president and CEO of Kraken. “His scientific and technical achievements speak for themselves, and I have great confidence that he will further strengthen our ability to lead the market in advanced acoustic sensors and underwater robotics.”

Previously Dr. Dillon was a control systems engineer at Honeywell Aerospace, a flight test instrumentation engineer at Canada’s National Research Council (NRC) Flight Research Laboratory and a research officer in guidance, navigation and control at NRC.

Dr. Dillon continues to have strong interests in acoustics, synthetic aperture imaging, GPU-accelerated computing, underwater navigation and vehicle control systems. His upcoming work will apply machine learning to further improve seabed imagery and to automatically recognize targets and other objects of interest on the seabed.
