This is more than you need to know, but if you're curious about what I've been up to, this part of a resume that would typically have been included in a proposal package for a potential customer.

Kenneth N. Cupery


Most recently (from December 2002 to November 2005) Mr. Cupery was working under contract to the Space Systems Division of ITT, (formerly the Commercial and Government Systems Division of the Eastman Kodak Company). In his last assignment, Mr. Cupery was responsible for the Verification Plan for a major ITT contract.

Mr. Cupery retired from Eastman Kodak in June of 2002. At retirement he was the Payload Engineer for a contract held by the Commercial and Government Systems Division of Eastman Kodak. Previously he participated in the preparation of the proposal for this contract as the West Coast on-site representative for Kodak during the summer & fall of 1998. Concurrently he supported several other contracts for Kodak as a Senior Systems Engineer.

Prior to this he served as the Optical Engineering Unit Director. As such, he was responsible for over 30 engineers and technicians supplying optical design, engineering, and testing services for precision aerospace imaging systems. Previously he was the Manager of Systems Engineering.

He also served as a Project Manager of Imaging Systems Group, within the Imaging Products & Systems Division, (IPS) of Kodak's Federal Systems Division. His group conducted a variety of imaging systems analyses and had special expertise in image restoration, data compression, and softcopy displays. He also managed a group in the same organization responsible for the development electronic cameras, precision film writers, and digitizers. This group developed what is thought to be the first portable digital SLR camera in the world!

From 1971 to 1982 he was Supervisor of Optics Research for the Engineering Research Center of Eastman Kodak. Prior to this he was a staff member of this Center and conducted work in optical testing, image quality specification, and electro-optic devices. He joined Kodak in 1965.
