APPENDIX A Biographical Sketches of Comrrnttee Members Kenneth I. Daugherty, chair, is currently chief scientist for E-Systems, Inc., where he assists the company in strategic planning and in moving systems engi- neering and information technology into new market areas. Previously he held a number of positions with the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA), that culminated with the position of deputy director, where he led efforts to develop a multi- agency Defense Hydrographic Initiative. Other positions at DMA included chief scientist, director of the DMA Systems Center, deputy director of Research and Engineering, and technical director of the Hydrographic/Topographic Center. Dr. Daugherty began his government career at the Aeronautical Chart and Informa- tion Center of the U.S. Air Force, where he pioneered work on World Geodetic Systems. Other positions include associate professor and associate director of the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics. Dr. Daugherty has a B.S. degree in mathematics, geography, and geology from Morehead State College, an M.Sc. degree in geod- esy from the Ohio State University, and a Ph.D. degree in geodesy from Uppsala University in Sweden. Jerry A. Aspland is president-designate of the California Maritime Academy, a unit of the California State University system. He recently retired as president of ARCO Marine, Inc. (AMI), a subsidiary of the Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO). AMI consists of ten U.S.-flag tankers that transport crude oil and other products. Mr. Aspland was responsible for the effective transportation of all ARCO-owned petroleum or crude oil on the water, including planning for the implementation of advanced navigation technologies in the fleet. His 30-year career includes all aspects of maritime operations. He was an officer in the U.S. Merchant Marine, holding all deck officer positions, including Master, on U.S.-flag 41

42 NAUTICAL CHART PROGRAM tankers. He is a member of the Marine Board of the National Research Council. Mr. Aspland has a B.S. degree from the California Maritime Academy and an M.B.A. degree from the California State University at Long Beach. G. Ross Douglas was the Dominion Hydrographer and director general of the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS). From 1960 until his retirement in 1995, Mr. Douglas held progressively more responsible positions within the CHS that involved all aspects of hydrography. During his tenure as Dominion Hydrogra- pher, Canada participated fully in the international effort to develop a standard for Electronic Chart Display and Information System and worked cooperatively with NOAA's Coast and Geodetic Survey to implement the transition to the digi- tal electronic chart. Mr. Douglas is president-elect of the Hydrographic Society. He has a B.Sc. degree in geology from Dalhousie University. James F. Ellis is vice president of the Boat Owners Association of the United States (Boat/U.S.), an association with more than 400,000 members. He is the executive director of the BoaW.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and previously served as president of the National Safe Boating Council. As president of the council, he directed activities such as the National Safe Boating Week Campaign (an outreach program that delivers safety information to more than 20,000 boat- ing clubs). Mr. Ellis is an accomplished sailor who has directed an offshore sail- ing school for 2,000 students and has raced nationally and internationally for most of his life. He received the 1991 Rolex Navigators Award and is a national honorary member of the U.S. Power Squadron. Mr. Ellis has pursued studies in civil engineering and journalism at the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and the University of Maryland. He served on the National Research Council Marine Board Committee on Shipborne Wastes. David J. Goehler is director of the Office of Corporate Research and Technol- ogy at Jeppesen Sanderson, a leading producer of aeronautical paper and elec- tronic charts and maps. Mr. Goehler oversees Jeppesen's research to improve chart production efficiencies and to facilitate new, innovative electronic chart applications, including airborne and ground-based applications of both paper and digital flight information, computer graphics technical support, and new product development activities. Before joining Jeppesen in 1990, Mr. Goehler completed a 20-year career as a captain in the NOAA commissioned officer corps, where he was deputy chief of the Aeronautical Charting Division. Mr. Goehler is an expe- rienced air-photo mission pilot and has over five years of sea duty aboard three NOAA vessels, including service as executive officer. Mr. Goehler has a B.S. degree in industrial engineering from Purdue University, an M.B.A. degree from the University of Santa Clara, and a certificate for advanced studies in geographic information systems from the University of Denver.

APPENDIX A 43 Hauke Kite-Powell is a research specialist at the Marine Policy Center of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Dr. Kite-Powell has analyzed the Inter- national Maritime Organization performance standards for the Electronic Chart and Display Information System (ECDIS), and was a technical consultant to the National Research Council Marine Board Committee on Nautical Charts and In- formation. He has written numerous publications on international technical stan- dards for ECDIS and on the general subject of marine technology for ships, in- cluding economic and risk analyses. Dr. Kite-Powell has a B.S. degree in naval architecture and marine engineering, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in ocean sys- tems management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Duane R. Niemeyer is the manager of the Military Services Department of the Applications Division of ESRI, which provides geographic information systems engineering services to the military and intelligence community. Mr. Niemeyer is the senior manager responsible for all on-going projects within his department. Projects include the Hydrographic Source Assessment System (HYSAS) and the Vector Product Format Automation Project for the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA). HYSAS is being developed to improve the systems capabilities of U.S. agencies responsible for the collection, maintenance, and dissemination of the national hydrographic and bathymetric data resource. Previously, Mr. Niemeyer was project manager for TASC, where he managed systems engineering support for the DMA Aerospace Center's integration of the Digital Production System. Mr. Niemeyer has a B.S. degree in mathematics and an M.A. degree in geography. Suzanne L.K. Rountree is the manager of the Transportation Information Sys- tems Department at Sandia National Laboratories. She manages projects that in- clude map display systems for emergency operations, research in object-oriented geographic information systems and spatial databases, business and process mod- eling for transportation planning, map-based vehicle routing and tracking, and discrete simulation modeling. Dr. Rountree has a B.S. degree in mathematics and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science with an emphasis on operations research, mathematical optimization, and numerical analysis. K. Stuart Shea is the director of geosystems at TASC where he serves as a senior advisor on technical affairs related to digital cartography, geographic information systems, and remotely sensed imagery acquisition and exploitation and their ap- plication to the development of emerging mapping technologies.
