Yankee Foxtrot welcomes Dr. Z. Ron Ying

Dr. Z. Ron Ying is now Technical Advisor at Yankee Foxtrot, Inc.

An innovator in Computed Tomography (CT) technologies, Explosive Detection Systems (EDS), and advanced visualization, Dr. Ying has applied his expertise in pattern recognition and developed many threat detection algorithms for checked baggage screening and check-point screening. He invented practical methods in reducing dual energy CT technology to practice, allowing Analogic’s first dual energy volumetric CT scanner to be certified at “improved detection and reduced false alarm rates” commented by Clifford Wilke, CTO of TSA at Congressional hearing in 2005.

Dr. Ying developed advanced visualization and display technologies for security applications, and was awarded a research grant from the Science and Technology Directorate of Department of Homeland Security –“Evaluation of Screener Performance with 3D Display Systems for Security Technologies”. He was the Principal Investigator of the project.

Dr. Ying adds considerable strength to the Yankee Foxtrot team.
