In today’s always-on environment, speed and accuracy of information are more critical than ever before. DigitalGlobe’s founder and CTO, Dr. Walter Scott, will demonstrate how the current state-of-the-art in satellite imagery technology – and innovations on the ground including DigitalGlobe’s geospatial cloud and value added solutions – are filling that need, changing the way we live and work by helping businesses and consumers alike create meaning out of what has proven to be so much more than mere pixels.
Walter brings over 24 years of experience in business and technical management of sophisticated space, defense, computing and remote sensing programs. Walter founded DigitalGlobe (as WorldView Imaging Corporation) in 1992 and managed the team that led to the successful launch of QuickBird in October 2001. He currently leads the team that is executing the company’s WorldView program, building DigitalGlobe’s next generation satellite and ground processing system. Walter previously worked at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), where he served as assistant associate director of the Physics Department, managed the “Brilliant Pebbles” Strategic Defense Initiative program, and led the development of computer automated design and manufacturing tools for wafer-scale integration. Prior to joining LLNL, Walter was president of Scott Consulting, a Unix systems and applications consulting firm. Walter received his doctorate and master of science degrees in computer science from the University of California, Berkeley; and a bachelor of arts in applied mathematics, magna cum laude, from Harvard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
