Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)
Texas (As LLNL's Senior Executive for Engineering, Dr. Spiros Dimolitsas is
responsible for approximately one-half of the Laboratory’s scientific and
technical operations under contract with the US Department of Energy.
In this capacity, he leads the Engineering
organization in providing a variety of products and services to other
LLNL organizations and external customers in the fields of weapons, lasers,
nuclear energy, bioscience and biotechnology, precision manufacturing,
high-speed communications, microelectronics, materials, optics, information
technologies, and environmental remediation.
Engineering is a 2,100-people organization comprising principally
electronic, electrical, and mechanical engineers and technical support
personnel. In addition, Engineering
has custody of ~800,000 gross ft2 of facilities, including LLNL’s
machine shops and micro-technology center.
to joining LLNL in late 1995, Spiros was a Director at COMSAT Laboratories (the
R&D arm of the Communications Satellite Corporation) where he was
responsible for a business unit on test and evaluation services, and before that
for program and business development related to multimedia and fixed and mobile
wireless communications. As
Director, he also led systems engineering R&D activities related to speech,
facsimile, and data transmission over mobile communications networks and
secure-transmission systems. Prior
to COMSAT he was with United Technologies MOSTEK, a semi-conductor manufacturer,
and before that with the Mayo Clinic (Minnesota) and High Energy and Nuclear
Equipment SA (Switzerland) working in the biomedical and computer-aided design
and manufacturing fields.
holds a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering and Digital Signal Processing from the
University of Sussex; an M.Sc. in Nuclear Reactor Science and Engineering from
the University of London (1979); and a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Physics and Mathematics
from the University of Sussex (1977).
he is member of the American Management Association (AMA), and in 1996 was
elected to the AMA Council on Manufacturing and R&D.
He is also a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE), past US delegate and Chair of Working Party 2/15-Signal
Processing of the United Nations' International Telecommunication Union, and was
representative to the coordinating committees on Audio-Visual and Multi-Media
Services, Universal Personal Telecommunications (UPT), and Future Public
Land Mobile Telecommunications Systems (FPLMTS).
He was also Technical Program Chair at the 1995 IEEE Symposium on
Advances on Computers and Communications, and General Chair of the 1995 IEEE
Speech Coding Workshop. In 1992, he
was the recipient of the IEEE outstanding achievement Standards' Medallion, for
"contributions and technical leadership in the standardization of
source-coding technology for international telecommunications".
He currently serves on the Board of Maxoptix Corporation, a major
provider of optical storage media for the internet infrastructure.
He has authored ore than 60 refereed papers, holds 5 patents, was Editor for Speech Processing of the IEEE Transactions on Communications, Vice-Chair of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) standards’ coordinating committee, and has authored and presented more than 150 position papers to the International Telecommunication Union.
