WoodwardDr. Ronald M. Sega
Woodward Professor of Systems Engineering
Director of Graduate Studies in Systems Engineering
Colorado State University

RONALD M. SEGA is currently the Woodward Professor of Systems Engineering and the Director of Graduate Studies in Systems Engineering at CSU. Prior to that, he served as Vice President and Enterprise Executive for Energy and the Environment at both Colorado State University (CSU) and The Ohio State University (OSU). He holds a B.S. in math and physics from the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, an M.S. in physics from Ohio State University and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Colorado.

Dr. Sega was a faculty member in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, also serving as dean from 1996-2001. He also served as technical director of the Laser and Aerospace Mechanics Directorate at F.J. Seiler Research Laboratory at the U.S. Air Force Academy, and as assistant director of the Space Vacuum Epitaxy Center at University of Houston. Dr. Sega was Director of Defense Research and Engineering, the chief technology officer for the Department of Defense (DoD), from 2001-2005. He retired from the Air Force Reserve in 2005 as a major general in the position of reserve assistant to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff after 31 years in the Air Force, having served in various assignments at Air Force Space Command and as a pilot. He most recently was the Under Secretary of the Air Force from 2005-2007 where he served as the DoD Executive Agent for Space and led the Air Force team that won the overall Presidential Award for Leadership in Federal Energy Management for 2006.

Dr. Sega has authored and co-authored more than 100 technical publications, has served on numerous local, regional and national advisory and governance boards, and is a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). A former astronaut, he flew aboard Space Shuttles Discovery (1994) and Atlantis (1996).



A Systems Approach to Remote Sensing and Gaining Understanding in Various Applications

The evolution of individual systems and the increasing opportunities to gain insight and value when viewed from an integrated systems approach will be discussed. This presentation explores how LiDAR and geospatial data fits into the context of larger systems. The importance of the integration of multispectral sensing from both active and passive systems will also be discussed. This systems approach should enable us to continue improving our ability to rapidly move from data to information to knowledge and to understanding in various applications.
