Wolfgang Baer



Dr. Wolfgang Baer received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California at Berkeley. He worked at Ford Aerospace as a mission analyst for meteorological and communication satellites before starting a company to develop computer graphics and simulation software. Dr. Baer has run a multi-million dollar simulation development laboratory for the US Army at Ft. Ord California, written large image and graphics software applications. He held a research professor position at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey California. Teaching courses in network and network programming and quantum information systems. He developed high speed low cost processor networks to integrate compute intensive real time video realistic battlefield simulation and rapid terrain data base creation algorithms into battlefield knowledge systems. Dr. Baer is the primary author of the Perspective View Nascent Technologies (PVNT) software package with which he pursued unmanned aerial vehicles mission control, cognitive vision interpretation. His interest in cognitive brain functions has lead to several publications exploring the physics of consciousness, real intelligence, and research applications directed toward the extension of cognitive brain capability beyond its normal limits. His latest research in Dual-Eye Input systems addresses the question, "Why are we wasting two eyes on one computer screen?".
