Glenn R. Jocher

Founder and Chief Engineer

Mr. Jocher received his Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from Purdue University in 2004. A modeling and simulation expert with over 10 years of industry experience on various Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) contracts, Mr. Jocher currently leads Ultralytics' modeling and simulation efforts on several government funded scientific initiatives.

Mr. Jocher has authored several unclassified peer-reviewed scientific papers on the development of technologies required to support US counter-proliferation missions leveraging recent developments in the fields of neutron and electron antineutrino detection technologies, as well as independently developed enhanced structure from motion (SFM) techniques for 3D scene reconstruction from static imagery or live EO video streams. In 2014 Mr. Jocher founded Ultralytics with the core mission of better serving the IC and DoD research communities.

Kurtis Nishimura

Chief Scientist

Kurtis Nishimura received his Ph.D. in high energy physics from the University of Hawaii in 2010, for the study of rare B meson decays at the Belle experiment in Tsukuba, Japan.  During his graduate work and postdoctoral studies, he played a lead role in detector design, modeling, and analysis of novel particle identification detectors for future particle physics experiments.  He has worked on electronics designs for such detectors and many other applications, with emphasis on high resolution timing using multi-gigasample-per-second waveform sampling. 

Dr. Nishimura has since developed front-end electronics for x-ray cameras, low-noise high voltage systems, and other custom front-ends for a variety of applications.  In 2015, Dr. Nishimura joined Ultralytics to leverage his expertise in detector modeling, analysis, and electronics design on neutron and antineutrino detection programs.
