David founded Stratovan Corporation in 2005. He has over 25 years of software experience and has led numerous successful commercial software product efforts. To Stratovan, he brings extensive knowledge in the computer industry spanning hardware, software and services in the medical, life sciences and security industries.
Under David’s direction, Stratovan has revolutionized how software is designed, built and provided to physicians and surgeons to better address the needs of the medical imaging industry. He also spearheaded the company’s strategic expansion into the airport security industry, winning a large contract with the TSA in 2013.
In partnership with the TSA since 2013, David has led efforts to develop software infrastructure enabling open architecture within the airport security industry. This includes leading the development of the Digital Imaging and Communication in Security (DICOS) Software Development Kit (SDK) for image standardization among security equipment that hundreds of airport security vendors use; and the Open Platform Software Library (OPSL) Software Development Kit (SDK) that enables security equipment to operate screening workflows together in a standardized manner. David and Stratovan have worked extensively with numerous vendors, national laboratories, and regulators (both international and domestic) to demonstrate operational feasibility of these standardized platforms.
David earned his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of California, Davis, and served as a post-doctoral researcher for three years at UCD. He has published over 30 peer-reviewed publications in journals, conference proceedings and books. He is also the author of twelve US-issued and other pending patents for new software technologies.
