camera, AXIS video Server, and Direct-X for audio/video playback.

Wintriss Engineering. (1999-2008) Software Developer, Consultant

1. Launched-Projectiles-Tracking - Designed and developed using C++/MFC

several software components for an embedded WinXP-based system for

detecting and tracking fast moving projectiles during their first few

milliseconds of motion. The instrument combined a camera, flash strobes,

radar, audio sensors, temperature sensors, and spatial alignment

sensors. My contribution to this project included: a DCOM server

providing database capabilities to local and remote clients; an image

analysis and management subsystem, a trajectory analysis and rotation

analysis subsystem and supporting mathematical components, a calibration

subsystem for measuring and correcting optical distortions, and several

graphical user interface components some of which were implemented with

C# and .NET. Also ported this software for a miniaturized device with
