Dr Jason Keen
Dr. Jason M. Keen began his career supporting Navy and Marine Corps Air Traffic Control and Landing Systems at Patuxent River Naval Air Station. Working as a contractor and then a civil servant, Dr. Keen developed radar software, radar data acquisition and analysis systems, and radar training packages. Upon returning to Clemson University for his doctorate, Dr. Keen’s research focused on the development of specialized Green’s Functions and hybrid computational approaches for the solution and simulation of RF penetration through small apertures and subsequently coupling into shielded and unshielded electronics systems through transmission lines, circuit boards, and wires. Additionally, Dr. Keen developed physics models for the radiation from computer systems and the associated detection systems to be able to reconstruct those data sets.
Dr. Keen transitioned to the missile world in 2004 and began to focus on the RF scattering phenomenology and wideband processing associated with missile defense. Additional technical efforts included the development of radome, radar absorbing material, and RF/EOIR signatures design tools. In 2009, Dr. Keen founded IERUS Technologies, growing it from its starting point of 2 employees to its current 100+ employee status. Dr. Keen has led IERUS to support all major defense contractors in areas ranging from advanced weapons to radars as well as capturing a variety of prime contract roles with the Air Force, Navy, Army, and Missile Defense Agency.
