Clear Systems Solutions RD Inc. was founded in 2013 by Dr. Norman J. Goldstein, after 20 years of industrial experience in remote sensing, photogrammetry and mapping, and 10 years of research and teaching mathematics at university. The remainder of this section outlines Dr. Goldstein's work and education history, his professional memberships, and selected publications.
Work and Education
- President & CEO, Clear System Solutions RD Inc., 2013-Present.
Research Analyst, MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates, 1991-2013. Worked in various aspects of remote sensing, photogrammetry and mapping, including
- The analysis, design and implementation of software to prepare and process remote sensing imagery. Mostly implemented in C++ and Matlab.
- Designed and wrote software for self-calibration of cameras and to perform bundle adjustment (solving for refined geometry of the cameras).
- Wrote and supported in-house systems for new or improved remote sensing products such as ortho mosaics and digital Earth models, and including both optical and synthetic aperture radar imagery.
- Provided technical support to customers, and internally within the company.
- M Sc, University of British Columbia, 1988-91. Computer Science: Parallel Processing. Our lab centred around dozens of transputers connected via cross-bar switches. We studied the writing, loading and running of parallel programs.
- Research and teaching mathematics, University of British Columbia and Purdue University, 1979-88. Taught undergraduate and graduate courses. Published several refereed papers.
- Ph D, Cornell University, 1975-79. Mathematics: Transcendental Algebraic Geometry. This includes the geomtery of projective spaces, which are central to the pin-hole camera model and the full modeling of rotations in 3-dimensional space.
- Nonsingular efficient modeling of rotations in 3-space using three components, 2010, arXiv:1005.4661 [cs.MS]. http://arxiv.org/abs/1005.4661
- Inertiality implies the Lorentz group, Mathematical Physics Electronics Journal, Paper 2, Volum 13, 2007. http://www.ma.utexas.edu/mpej/Vol/13/2.pdf

- with H. Wehn and P. Wort, Accurate Coregistration of Remote Sensing Imagery. Proc. Int. Symp. on Spectral Sensing Research ISSSR, Nov. 1995, Melbourne, Australia.
- with A. Wagner, S. Chanson, J. Jiang, H. Larsen and H. Sreekantaswamy, TIPS: Transputer-based Interactive Parallelizing System. In proc. "Transputing '91", World Transputer user group, Sunnyvale, California, Apr 1991.
- The Geometry of Surfaces in the 4-Quadric, Rend. Sem. Mat. Univers. Polictecn. Torino 43, 467-499 (1985).
- A Second Lefschetz Theorem for General Manifold Sections in Complex Projective Space, Math. An. 246, 41-68 (1979).
