Neya Systems, LLC is happy to welcome Dr. Mark Allmen, Dr. Chris Baker, Dr. Meenal Patel and Ted Kuhn as it continues to grow and expand our employee base to handle new DoD and commercial efforts.

Dr. Allmen joins Neya Systems most recently from Practical Perception, LLC and Lockheed Martin, where he has been involved in a variety of aerial and ground robotics efforts. As one of the first employees and a member of the board of directors at Perceptek, Mark brings over 20 years of experience in applied computer vision, unmanned systems development, program management, and business development.

Dr. Chris Baker joins Neya Systems from CMU NREC, and has a decade of experience in all aspects of unmanned vehicle systems development. Chris’s focus has been on application of 3D sensing and processing for outdoor platforms. He was the perception lead for Lockheed Martin’s Marlin system, for oil rig inspection, and perception lead for a recent aircraft maintenance system.

Dr. Meenal Patel is a recent graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, where she worked on computer vision and machine learning algorithms for Functional MRI analysis for diagnosis and treatment of depressive disorders. Meenal brings a unique perspective to unmanned systems, combining biomedical and perception experience.

Ted Kuhn has over a decade of experience in complex hardware systems design. Most recently, Ted was at Bodymedia (recently acquired by Jawbone), as a lead on the Bodymedia Fit Link hardware team. Ted’s experience in commercial hardware design is invaluable as Neya moves into the commercial product development space. Prior to Bodymedia, Ted was at QinetiQ North America, where he designed autonomy hardware for the DragonRunner(tm)-10 series of platforms.

“We are fortunate to be able to continue to grow our team with outstanding employees who bring diverse experience in unmanned systems development,” said Dr. Parag Batavia, president of Neya Systems. “Mark, Chris, Meenal, and Ted are all individuals who have their choice of organizations to work with, and I am honored and humbled that they all chose to join Neya”.
