Walter H. Delashmit, Ph.D.
Class of 1962
Dr. Walter H. Delashmit retired from Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control after 25 years and 39 years in the aerospace industry. He then was on the Adjunct Faculty of the University of North Texas and has performed independent consulting since 2005. He also reviews technical papers on a regular basis for journals and conferences.
December 2005 Independent Consulting
Dr. Delashmit does part-time consulting work with the Neural Decision Lab, LLC (NDL), the Image Processing and Neural Network Laboratory (IPNNL), Profiles International and Georgetown Rail Equipment Company. The consulting work is in the areas of neural networks, image processing and signal processing.
Dr. Delashmit has worked on two independent consulting contracts (non aerospace). These include (1) using image processing to perform railroad track tiles inspection starting in December 2005 for Georgetown Railroad Company. This was performed with the Neural Decision Lab and (2) helping to prepare a proposal (2008) for Nine Sigma, Inc. and on scratch detection on smooth surfaces. This proposal received extremely high evaluation scores although at the present the funding has been put on hold. This was performed at UNT.
August 2007 Adjunct Faculty
Dr. Delashmit was an Adjunct Faculty Member at the University of North Texas (UNT).
Dr. Delashmit taught courses at UNT including Project VI (Modern Electronic Communications), Project VII and Project VIII (Senior Design Projects), Modern Control Systems (a new course that he also developed in its entirety for the first time it was offered at UNT) and Circuit Theory I.
January 1982 Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control
To P.O. Box 650003
January 2007 Dallas, Texas 75265-0003
Dr. Delashmit was previously the Program Manager and Principal Investigator for the Seeker Technology and Software Development Program (2005 Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ 2007) and the Weapon Seeker Improvement Program (2001 Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ 2005). These two programs were developing advanced automatic target recognition algorithms for the next generation of laser radar (LADAR) sensors for future missiles and submunitions.
Dr. Delashmit was also the Manager of Signal and Image Processing (1985 Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ 2005) at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control - Dallas (LMMFC) [formerly Loral Vought Systems (LVS) and LTV Aerospace and Defense] and has over 39 years of experience in engineering. He developed the Signal and Image Processing Group as a new functional group at LMMFC.
From 1998 through 2000 he concentrated on implementing the Software Engineering Institute's (SEI) Capability Maturity Model (CMM) at Lockheed Martin to achieve the software capability for Level 2 and Level 3. During this time he was a member of the Software Process Group and previously a member of the Process Coordination Group. This assignment included developing and implementing the processes and participation in one Capability Based Assessment for Internal Process Improvement (CBA IPI) (Level 3 - November 1999) and two evaluations (Level 3 - August 1999 and Level 3 Enterprise effort - June 2000). He had the responsibility for leading the Enterprise (non-embedded, non-real-time, diverse environment) software process improvement effort. This Enterprise effort resulted in a successful evaluation of these unique software projects in June 2000. He has also taken specialized software process training at the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the Software Productivity Consortium (SPC), the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) and at Lockheed Martin.
He was previously the Principal Investigator for LMMFC for developing target recognition and image processing algorithms for a contract on the DARPA Autonomous Systems Technology (AST) Program and was also the Lead Engineer for the algorithm development activities for the Demonstration of Advanced Solid State LADAR (DASSL) contract. He was also previously the Principal Investigator for the LMMFC contract for the Joint Advanced Weapons Guidance (JAWG) Program. He also developed enhanced detection and aimpoint optimization algorithms for the ERINT Program (now PAC-3 Program) using neural networks and robust statistical signal processing techniques.
He has performed work in the areas of automatic target recognition (ATR) for both tactical and fixed, high-value targets, scene data base generation, development of target and missile trackers, application of neural networks, artificial intelligence and expert systems techniques, and development of new signal processing architectures for implementation of advanced algorithms.
He also developed the Image Processing Laboratory at LMMFC-D that consists of multi-user networked PCs running Linux and Windows, and peripheral equipment for displaying, recording, generating and manipulating various types of imagery. He also developed a separate Image Processing Laboratory annex for other specialized activities.
Dr. Delashmit has also developed image processing algorithms for the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) applications for the Interceptor Electronics (INTELECT) Program and under Advanced Space Defense Systems Studies IR&D. He developed the LMMFC-D plume track point determination algorithm that was recognized by the SDI Program Office as a Significant Technical Achievement in Research. He also directed and performed algorithm development in the area of hardbody localization and missile identification.
He was also previously assigned as Project Manager for the Anti-Satellite (ASAT) Digital Signal Processing Electronics (DSPE) Feasibility Study. This contract led to a design which showed significant improvements in ASAT performance capabilities and which was amenable to real-time implementation. This feasibility study resulted in a follow-on contract for which Dr. Delashmit was also Project Manager. This DSPE Preliminary Design Program performed further analyses and designed, constructed and tested an 8-channel breadboard. A critical element of this program was the design of an optimum real-time filter and an enhanced target location algorithm, which extracted the target signature from high-frequency noise and a low-frequency modulation signal that was five times as strong as the target signature. These DSPE contracts were successfully completed on time and within budget and resulted in a system that met stringent size, weight and electrical power constraints.
Algorithm and design work for scene matching correlation was extended under Internal Research and Development (IR&D) to develop an enhanced processing architecture using a new generation of DSP chips. This new design, the Real-Time Signal and Image Processing System (RTSIPS), was constructed and tested to process two- and three-dimensional imagery using enhanced target recognition and scene matching algorithms.
Prior to these assignments, Dr. Delashmit was the Lead Engineer for the Automatic Laser Target Classification (ALTC) Program and for Automatic Acquisition IR&D, developing algorithms for smart missiles using advanced ATR techniques. He developed algorithms for image enhancement, edge extraction, target detection, target segmentation and feature extraction. These algorithms included median and alpha-trimmed mean filters, hypothesis-based detection algorithms and synergistic target segmentation algorithms. Imagery processed included laser radar (LADAR) (range, intensity and Doppler signatures), passive imaging infrared and millimeter wave radar.
August 1976 Research Engineer
To The Pennsylvania State University
January 1982 Applied Research Laboratory
State College, Pennsylvania
Dr. Delashmit applied digital signal processing techniques to the detection and tracking of underwater targets. He was the lead engineer for the development and implementation of a real-time, bit-slice, microprocessor-based target detection algorithm for a prototype torpedo system. He also designed digital filters for various applications and developed least-mean squares processing techniques for the decoupling of target and interference sources. He also assisted U.S. Navy personnel in proposal evaluation and contract monitoring.
April 1972 Senior Engineer
To Martin Marietta Aerospace
August 1976 Orlando Division
Dr. Delashmit was involved in the development of correlation and spectral analysis techniques for correlation map-matching systems for missile terminal homing systems. He performed theoretical analyses and developed computer simulations for analyzing radar signal processing performance. A feature/edge correlation system was developed which resulted in improved accuracy over conventional systems. A detailed error analysis was performed to generate accuracy predictions and error sensitivities for an operational terminal homing system. He also performed control system design and analyses, tracking filter design and bandwidth optimization, and body-fixed guidance studies.
March 1969 Member of Technical Staff
To TRW Systems
April 1972 Houston Operations
Dr. Delashmit performed mathematical modeling of systems and computer simulation studies for Skylab missions. He also performed preflight and postflight analyses for Apollo missions. He was also a member of the Apollo 13 planning and analysis team. Major efforts involved the application of Kalman filtering techniques in the design of a real-time roll angle determination technique for Skylab and the evaluation of the effects of gravity gradient torques on Skylab for various inertial orientations.
