Abridged Curriculum Vitae
Dr. Alan R. Pinkus
is an Experimental Psychologist who first worked at Systems Research Laboratories from 1973 to 1982. During that time period he was an Assistant Research Psychologist investigating workload assessment of Digital Avionics Information Systems & display image metrics whilst also earning his MA degree. He then began his Federal career as an ergonomic specialist for the Aeronautical Systems Division at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Wright-Patt is located in Dayton, Ohio, home of the Wright Brothers, the inventors of powered flight. As a human factors engineer, Alan worked on major weapon systems including LANTIRN, KE-3, Gunship 2, Air Force One, & the E-8 Joint STARS. In that position, he also developed the Mil-Prime Specification for Interior & Exterior Aircraft Lighting. In 1986 he transferred to Armstrong Laboratory thus returning to research to concentrate on applied vision challenges. As a Senior Engineering Research Psychologist, he worked in the areas of image display metrics, night vision goggles, apparent motion models, aircraft lighting, transparency analysis, test method standardization, vision from space, & the visual psychophysics of multispectral image enhancement. A large portion of his work focused on integration issues for night vision devices & aerospace transparencies. Also during this time frame, he studied visual psychophysics at Miami University where he attained his doctoral degree in Experimental Psychology. Alan received the USAF Science & Engineering Award in 1999 for his significant contributions to the testing & integration of night vision devices with advanced, large-scale weapon systems. He has lectured multiple times in Europe & Asia for NATO on the topics of night vision goggle human factors, aircraft lighting, display analysis, visionic system testing, & rotary-wing brownout mitigation. Dr. Pinkus was presented with the Award of Merit from & was made a Fellow of the American Society for Testing & Materials International (ASTM) in 2004 for his long-term committee leadership in development of test methodologies, conduct of inter-laboratory studies, & publication of multiple ASTM standards for Aerospace Transparencies. In 2014, he was awarded the NATO Science & Technology Organization's, Human Factors Medical Panel Excellence Award for work on "Rotary-wing Brownout Mitigation: Technologies & Training." His most recent research efforts were in the areas of multispectral imaging systems, human visual performance assessment methodologies for digital image fusion, visual search paradigms, & modeling observer vision through the atmosphereHe has 30 US patents & 89 publications. After eight years as a contractor & 35 years of Federal Service, both for the United States Air Force, Alan happily retired on January 3, 2017.
