David Sappington has worked on a number of intensive computing projects, including data fusion algorithms in support of the U.S. Army. He has designed and implemented computer-based tools for application in the analysis of large data sets and has extensive experience in spatial data management, geographic information systems, simulation, optimization, and computational linguistics.
Mr. Sappington’s experience in software engineering for scientific and technical applications spans both serial and parallel computation. He has designed and implemented electronic intelligence data fusion algorithms, along with an associated test bed, a tactical electronic intelligence analysis, and a full graphical user interface. More recently, Mr. Sappington has spearheaded the development of a transcription and text recognition tool, addressing a significant technical challenge that had been pursued for many years.
