PCI Geomatics Expands Scientific Research Team

MARKHAM, Ontario, Canada – PCI Geomatics, a world-leading developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced today the expansion of its team of scientists to meet the dynamic and rapid changes occurring in the geospatial industry.

“PCI Geomatics continues to recruit and retain top talent within the remote sensing community,” said Terry Moloney, President and CEO. “To remain competitive in a growing and evolving global geospatial industry, PCI Geomatics has invested in developing its internal science team to continue to bring leading-edge capability to market.”

Promoted to the senior scientist team in January 2017, Dr. Gabriel Gosselin develops new tools and techniques for compact polarimetry and interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR). He also provides advanced SAR training to customers and partners worldwide. Dr. Gosselin received his PhD from the University of Montreal in 2013, where he advanced research in polarimetric decomposition to improve the classification of wetlands.

Wolfgang Lück joined the senior science team in June 2016. Mr. Lück brings extensive experience to PCI Geomatics in designing operational quantitative tools and workflows for Earth-observation imagery. His specific focus is on “big data” — large, complex data sets that challenge traditional processing software and hardware — and the automation of quantitative image-processing workflows. Previously, Mr. Lück was the manager of research development and implementation at the Earth Observation Service Centre of the South African National Space Agency (SANSA). He was responsible for the development of a multi-mission satellite ground segment that generated automated geospatial services and data sets for government and industry.

Other long-tenured members of the senior scientist team include Juliusz Ostrowski (algorithm research, optimization, and implementation), John Wessels (specialist in SAR image processing and lead InSAR scientist), Dr. Philip Cheng (specialist in photogrammetry), Dr. Gordon Deng (advanced optical image processing), Dr. Masroor Hussain (specialist in automation and object-based image analysis), Dr. Yong Hu (specialist in photogrammetry and digital image processing), and Dr. Zhen Xiong (senior scientist, photogrammetry and remote sensing).

The team is led by David Stanley, chief technology officer of PCI Geomatics. Mr. Stanley, a 35-year veteran of the company, has contributed countless product innovations during his tenure. He recently implemented Semi-global Matching (SGM) techniques for extraction of stereo elevation information from high-resolution aerial and satellite imagery.
