Bluefin's Bondaryk Appointed Director of Engineering
Dr. Joe Bondaryk, Director of Engineering for Bluefin Robotics.
It is the sign of the times for Bluefin Robotics. A flow of new contracts for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), upgrades, and subsystems are demanding that the MIT spin-off focus critical man-power to its most exciting projects. Bluefin announced the promotion of Dr. Joseph Bondaryk to Director of Engineering. He will be tasked with the primary responsibility of managing all engineering-related work.
“We are thrilled to have Joe in this new and influential role at Bluefin,” said Dr. Brian Abraham, CEO of Bluefin. “He has continuously demonstrated a knack for completing projects on time and under budget. Joe is well respected as a leader to our other project managers and engineers. I have no doubt that every project that comes through our door will benefit from his experience and enthusiasm.”
Dr. Bondaryk joined Bluefin in 2003 as Project Manager and was quickly promoted to Director of Project Management. He has managed Mechanical, Electrical and Software aspects of 9-in., 12-in. and 21-in. diameter AUV development as well as onboard and towed array payload integration. Prior to joining Bluefin, Dr. Bondaryk was a Principal Engineer at Titan Corp., Aerospace Electronics Division. His responsibilities include project management and technical direction for several DoD-sponsored R&D programs involving submarine sonar, image processing and multi-sensor data fusion. Prior to joining Titan, Dr. Bondaryk was a Scientist at the NATO SACLANT Undersea Research Centre in the Anti-Submarine Warfare Group, where he developed multi-static sonar models and designed and tested active risk mitigation sonar for marine mammal avoidance. While at Engineering Technology Center, Dr. Bondaryk investigated high frequency acoustic imaging to detect degradation of embedded containments of nuclear power plants, developed localization of transient noise sources on submarines via array processing and designed a Laser Doppler Velocimeter-based test bed to measure vibrations on submarine piping systems. Dr. Bondaryk has investigated structural acoustic wave interactions on submarine hulls through models and experiments and has designed arrays for towed sonar platforms. He has created morphology-based detection and Automatic Target Recognition algorithms for resolved and unresolved targets in visual, IR, radar, SAR and sonar imagery. A former Manager of the MIT Acoustics and Vibration Laboratory, he has lectured graduate courses in Spectral Analysis, Sonar, Radar and Seismic Signal Processing and is an expert in data acquisition and experimental design. Dr. Bondaryk is a member of IEEE, ASA, SPIE, EKN and Sigma Xi.
Dr. Bondaryk received a degree in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT, and his Ph. D. in Oceanographic Engineering jointly from MIT and Wood Hole Oceanographic Institution.
