SELEX Galileo Ltd. (SELEX), UK

SELEX Galileo Ltd is a Finmeccanica Company, who is the UK’s foremost supplier of electronic systems for civil and military platforms in the air, at sea and on land.  Our involvement within this programme will be through our Land Systems and Electro-optics Sector business unit based in Basildon. SELEX specializes in developing world class integrated sensor solutions for land sea and air domains.  It is a leader in radar and IR/electro-optical surveillance, tracking, targeting and imaging systems.  SELEX are also a leader in the field of security and homeland defense supplying a range of integrated surveillance systems and products that are actively in use world-wide helping to maintain the security of borders and other key facilities. 

 

Alan Varco has worked within SELEX Galileo and its precursor companies for over 24 years.  In that time he has gained extensive experience in System Design and development and in the programme management of large and multinational design and product development programmes, and in the management of collaborative multinational research programmes.  In the last 6 years Alan has been responsible for the future product planning for Homeland Security products and capabilities, and is responsible for the technology acquisition and investment planning for the Homeland Security group based at Basildon.  Alan has extensive experience in the field of the management of research which includes internally funded development research and development programmes into reconfigurable complex system architectures and in the development of enhanced vision systems for helicopters.  More recently he has been involved in the PASR programme SOBCAH and in the setting up of a Defence Technology Centre responsible for the management of low maturity technology development within SMEs and Universities on behalf of the UK MoD.

 

Mr George Matich is Chief Technical Officer for Communication and Network Systems related technologies at SELEX.  George has been with SELEX for more than 20 years, during this time he has held a number of senior engineering roles seeing project through from concept definition to associated research/development, on to production and finally to in-service operation.  As well as his internal engineering responsibilities, George has represented SELEX on a number of international working groups/committees dealing with standardization related matters in the defense and aerospace domains.  For the past 5 years George has been very instrumental in the development of the SELEX strategy for network sensing systems, this activity has included the definition of a SELEX WiSNet technology platform with associated product/functional route maps that show clear links with the companies research activities in this domain through to required product capabilities. As far WiSNet related research is concerned George has been involved in the company's activity on a number of European Commission projects such as SOBCAH, AWARE and IMSK.  As well as the involvement in the research activities mentioned above, two years ago George was asked by the UK DTI to take part in a WiSNet related mission to the west coast of the USA.  The mission was tasked on behalf of the DTI to assess the current state of the art of WiSNet related technologies and product in the US, such that DTI could better planning future initiative in the UK. 

 

Dr Jason Lepley received a BEng in Electronic Engineering from Loughborough University in 1994 and an MSc (Laser Physics) and PhD (Photonics) from the University of Essex in 1995 and 1998 respectively.  Following his PhD, he spent a further two years as a research fellow, working on high speed optical telecommunications, before being recruited into two start-up companies where he lead the design of ultra-long haul optical networks.  He has been actively involved in several EU framework 6 projects including MUSE, UROOF and AWARE.  He is currently a Scientific Consultant to the Future Systems Group at SELEX with research interests in sensor networks, surveillance and imaging systems.
