Lawrence Weintraub

Principal Physicist

Lawrence Weintraub joined Reservoir Labs in 2019 as Principal Physicist performing research on signal processing algorithms, particularly in relation to radar systems.  He currently works with the algorithms team, seeking out ways to apply innovative computational algorithms to allow for more accurate and efficient sensor systems.  Prior to joining Reservoir, Lawrence spent his career working on a wide variety of applications involving the radio frequency portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.  At Aerospace Corporation, Lawrence developed processing techniques for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), including autofocus algorithms designed to use multiple passes to generate 3-D interferometric topographic maps, coherent change detection techniques, and the development of a mathematical framework for producing wide-band interferometric images in the near field in the mm-wave portion of the spectrum.  


Some of the more interesting applications of this work include highly accurate topographic maps of the Lunar surface using the Goldstone Solar System Radar in collaboration with JPL, using multiple image collections to identify the location of the L-CROSS impact site on the Lunar surface, and the demonstration of a 95 GHz rooftop radar for topographic mapping at 1 cm resolution.  At Lockheed-Martin, Lawrence developed differential geometry based techniques for angle-of-arrival signal geolocation; while at Harris Corporation, he worked on research developing unique electronic warfare algorithms for identifying and disrupting surveillance radar.  Overall, he has 20 years of expertise in using statistical and mathematical modeling to solve problems in signal processing, time series analysis, image processing and geolocation.  


Lawrence earned a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics from Cornell University in 1998 and a Master of Science in Engineering in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001.
