Dr. Socrates Deligeorges
Technical Director and Group Leader, Active Perception
Dr. Deligeorges leads the development of autonomous systems and sensing focused on edge processing and behavior driven closed-loop sensing at SSCI. His team works on modular autonomy stacks for small autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles and ground robots to support squad level operations and to create ‘taskable’ systems that can be given missions as if it were just another member of the team. Areas of interest include incremental development of autonomy, creating complex behaviors from simple building blocks, on the fly path and mission planning, smart sensing, and user interfaces to enable manned-unmanned teaming. Dr. Deligeorges background is in acoustics, neuroscience, neuromorphic technologies, and smart sensors, particularly to enable robotic systems and increase autonomy. Prior to joining SSCI, he ran BioMimetic Systems for 12 years specializing in hostile fire detectors and counter-sniper technologies, patenting technology and selling systems domestically and internationally, as well as running sensor programs with DARPA, ONR, ARL, C5ISR, Natick Soldier Center, Picatinny Arsenal, AFOSR, NIH, and the Institute for Collaborative Biotechnology.
Dr. Deligeorges holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Tufts University, M.S. and Ph.D. from Boston University in Biomedical Engineering with a specialization in Neuroscience.
