TeleSecurity Sciences personnel have distinguished and successful backgrounds in scanning technology in both medical and security imaging markets. This research and development has led to significant advances in threat detection and the treatment of cancer and heart disease.
Key members of TeleSecurity Sciences staff and its associates have been involved in the founding of some of the most succesful imaging businesses. Example companies include Invision, Imatron, Analogic, Neurologica, Hinnovation, Terarecon, Techniscan, BSD Medical, Photo Diagnostic Systems,
A brief overview of some of the management team is provided below.
Douglas P. Boyd PhD is an internationally recognized physicist who has pioneered in the fields of Medical Imaging and Airport Security Imaging. While at Stanford University he conceived the first fan-beam, rotary Computed Tomography scanners using Xenon detector arrays which became the standard in the industry for 20 years. The fan beam CT patents were licensed to General Electric and sub-licensed worldwide. While Professor of Radiology (Physics) at the University of California, San Francisco, he developed the first scanning electron beam CT scanner (EBCT) and later founded Imatron Inc which commercialized EBCT and was the leader in cardiac CT imaging for 20 years until sold to General Electric in 2001. While at Imatron he worked on airport explosives detection and later founded Invision which was for many years the only certified Explosives Detection System (EDSS)in airports for which Dr. Boyd was awarded the Conway Safe Skies Award in 1993. Invision was sold to General Electric, and later Morpho/Safran and has recently shipped the 2000th unit . In 2008 he founded TSS to help introduce the next level of explosives detection technology. During these years, Dr. Boyd served on the boards of a number of small innovative high-tech companies, published more than 100 technical papers and was awarded 26 US patents.
Dr. Boyd is an Adjunct Professor of Radiology at the University of California, San Francisco and has authored over a hundred scientific papers. He is a frequent invited speaker at universities and symposiums. Dr. Boyd holds twenty six U.S. patents and several others pending.
Bernard M. Gordon M.S., Dr. Gordon is a distinguished businessman and renowned inventor and expert in imaging technology. Dr. Gordon received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has been awarded several honorary degrees in Engineering and Science.
He has founded a number of innovative businesses and many have grown into substantial corporations including Neurologica Corporation, which he co-founded and serves as its President, and Analogic Corporation, which he founded and served as its C.E.O. and President. More recently he founded Photo Diagnostic Systems Inc, a leading company in the PET imaging market and a partner with Telesecurity Sciences in the development of new CT scanning equipment. He remains an active entrepreneurial innovator. Dr. Gordon serves as the Chairman Emeritus of Lahey Clinic Foundation. He serves as a Trustee of Tufts University.
He is considered as the “father of analog to digital conversion” and widely known for his inventions and contributions to signal translation, medical tomography and other high precision instrumentation products and applications. He has received the National Medal of Technology from President Reagan and was elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering. He holds more than 200 patents worldwide.
A lifelong inventor, Dr Gordon’s creations include the fetal monitor, the high speed analog to digital converter, the instant imaging computer aided tomography scanner and Doppler radar. He is the primary architect of the multi slice dual energy computer tomography system that is used in over 1000 eXaminer scanners throughout the world.
Samuel M. Song, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, received the SB, MS, and Ph.D. degrees from MIT, UCLA and USC, respectively, all in Electrical Engineering. He has over twenty-five years of industrial and academic research and development experience in imaging and image processing systems.
Dr. Song has served on the faculty of the Department of Radiology at the University of California, San Francisco, and on the faulty of School of Electrical Engineering at Korea University, Seoul, Korea. Most recently, he served on the faculty of the College of Engineering, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, as an Associate and Full Professor. He has published nearly a hundred scientific papers in international journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Song holds four US patents and has several others pending.
Hui Hu, Ph.D., Chairman of the Board, has over twenty years of experience in medical imaging industry, particularly in multinational, midsize, and startup companies. He was a Senior Physicist at GE Healthcare where he designed several GE flagship products, including the LightSpeed (multi-slice) CT scanner, and received numerous awards. He is the founder, President and CEO of HInnovation, which was acquired by Vital Images.
Dr. Hu is an Associate Adjunct Professor of Radiology at several US medical centers and has published extensively in international journals and conferences. Dr. Hu is an inventor of over forty US patents.
Brian A. Chard, F.C.I.S., Chief Financial Officer is a qualified Accountant and Company Secretary. Mr. Chard is a UK Citizen and is also a Director of one of Telesecurity Sciences’s main stockholders, Global Secure Limited. He has many years experience in raising equity finance and was responsible for the financial management and control of the Belfry Property funds, a series of multi million $ UK commercial property funds . His particular emphasis was on the creation of funding relationships and investor liason.
Mr. Chard has been closely involved in the founding of a number of successful start-up and early stage property development and technology businesses.
