Dr. Alan Samuels has been a research chemist at the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Chemical Biological Center since 1996 with an emphasis on remote sensing of chemical threat plumes by passive spectroradiometry. Since 2013 Dr. Samuels has focused on the evolution of the newer Integrated Early Warning concept and its reduction to practice starting with “slew to cue” and mobile sensor mission planning based on LIDAR and RADAR event cues and the reduction of raw sensor data into salient decision support situational understanding for the Assess-Protect-Mitigate formalism.  Dr. Samuels established a partnership with CCDC C5ISR Night Vision Laboratory and the Program Executive Office Command, Control, Computers – Tactical (PEO C3T) early on in these efforts to introduce the Integrated Sensor Architecture to the Chem-Bio Defense community, advancing the adoption of this publish/subscribe sensor data management environment across the chemical and biological sensor programs of record and the emerging CBRN Support to C2 program.
