Joseph Murray – Principal

Mr. Murray has over eighteen years of experience in system architecture development, digital signal and image processing, software development, systems engineering, acquisition planning and program management. He has extensive experience in real-time systems design, system architecture, statistical analysis of complex phenomena and physical simulation. Mr. Murray specializes in the effective use of COTS hardware and software in low power, highly reliable modular systems.

At 3 Phoenix, Inc. Mr. Murray led the design and development of the Technology Insertion Photonics Mast. This activity has been focused on the procurement, integration, and testing of an alternative non-penetrating photonics mast for the VA CLASS submarines. In addition Mr. Murray was the System Architect for the AN/SPS-74 Periscope Detection Radar, a modern CVN-based processing system based on a Hybrid System Architecture. Mr. Murray has been an advocate for Hybrid System Architectures as a means to mitigate some of the issues that have arisen due to the rapid transition to pure server based combat systems and sensor processing systems.

Mr. Murray held the positions of Chief Scientist, Chief Technology Officer, the Director of Strategic Technologies, and Chief Engineer at Digital System Resources (acquired by General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems in 2004) . In these capacities, Mr. Murray had a diverse set of responsibilities including evaluation of new technologies, design of system architectures, and systems integration. Mr. Murray led the design, development, and fielding of the Technology Insertion Photonics Mast Workstation and the Submarine Common Imaging System as Chief Architect. Both of these systems are real-time network-enabled image processing systems. These systems were specifically designed to incorporate advanced image processing algorithms including detection, classification, and resolution enhancements in the real-time processing chain. In addition Mr. Murray was an active participant in the Submarine APB and TI Hardware working groups. In support of these activities Mr. Murray was a leading advocate for the adoption of COTS hardware and open software solutions for Sonar, Tactical Control, TSMS, and multiple training and analysis systems.
