Roger Stettner Advanced Scientific Concepts ASC 3D Flash LIDAR

Dr. Roger Stettner, Chairman of the Board

Dr. Roger Stettner is the Board Chairman of Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC.   As founder and visionary of ASC, Roger was instrumental in the major physics breakthroughs resulting in the 3D Flash LIDAR™ technologies for lightweight, robust, solid-state 3D time-of-flight cameras.   The companies' 3D cameras are used in applications ranging from automotive (ADAS, predictive suspension, etc.) to space-based operations (rendezvous & docking with the ISS, landing on asteroids, etc.), unmanned aeriel operations (mapping, helicopter brownout landing, imaging through water, autonomous aerial refueling, etc.), to ground vehicles operations (mining, security, etc).

Roger holds over fifteen (15) patents in fields ranging from 3D imaging LIDAR to underwater 3D imaging to automotive collision avoidance systems.

Roger received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Chicago and studied under Nobel Prize winning astrophysicist Professor S. Chandrasekhar, an MA in Physics from Columbia University, Bell Telephone Laboratory Program and his BS in Physics from the City University of New York.
