Jacyna ’73 Named MITRE Fellow

The MITRE Corporation recently announced the appointment of Garry Jacyna ’73 to the position of MITRE Fellow. The title of fellow is conferred on senior members of the company’s technical staff who have made significant contributions to the state of the art in one or more technical disciplines. MITRE has appointed only 14 fellows since the position was created in 1962.

Jacyna is nationally known within the undersea warfare community. He has been appointed to numerous blue-ribbon committees and contributed to several important projects, including a critical analysis that helped reconstruct the Russian Kursk disaster.

“Dr. Jacyna’s achievements during his 15-year tenure at MITRE include the creation and validation of state-of-the-art analytical performance prediction models for ship and submarine sonar systems, which are improving fleet undersea warfare capabilities,” said MITRE president and CEO Martin Faga.

Jacyna is the chief scientist for MITRE’s program in netted sensors, where he is developing and directing research in distributed detection, classification, and tracking algorithms.

At Rensselaer, Jacyna earned his bachelor’s degree in physics, and master’s and doctoral degrees in applied mathematics.
