Philip E. Ardanuy is Chief Scientist at INNOVIM. A meteorology graduate of Florida State University, Dr. Ardanuy has 31 years of professional experience participating in EPA, NOAA, NASA, NSF, and DoD environmental applications and remote sensing programs. He specializes in developing integrated mission concepts through government-industry-academic partnerships. Dr. Ardanuy’s research and development career extends across net-centric and system-of-systems concepts, telepresence-telescience-telerobotics, tropical meteorology, the Earth’s radiation budget and climate, satellite instrument calibration and characterization, remote sensing applications and systems engineering, scientific applications research-to-operational transition, and validation of environmental observations. Dr. Ardanuy has authored >50 publications on environmental and weather monitoring and modeling; sustainable exploration; utilization of operational environmental satellite data; environmental sensing; and applications development and refinement approaches.

He participates in numerous public service activities, including Associate Editor, International Society for Optical Engineering’s (SPIE) Journal of Applied Remote Sensing (JARS), Chair of the American Meteorological Society’s (AMS) Committee on Satellite Meteorology and Oceanography, and organizing and science planning committees for AMS and SPIE. Dr. Ardanuy is a member of the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Earth Studies which provides oversight on civil Earth observation space activities in the general areas of Earth sciences and other remote sensing applications.

The committee oversees ad hoc studies that identify policy issues and offer advice concerning priorities for civilian federal agencies with responsibility for Earth sciences research and operations. Dr. Ardanuy is also a member of the Committee on a Strategy to Mitigate the Impact of Sensor De-scopes and De-manifests on the NPOESS and GOES-R Spacecraft, Space Studies Board, National Research Council. Dr. Ardanuy previously served on the Committee on Environmental Satellite Data Utilization, Space Studies Board, National Research Council, which published Utilization of Operational Environmental Satellite Data: Ensuring Readiness for 2010 and Beyond, 2003-2004; Committee on Earth Science and Applications from Space (the “Decadal Survey”), Panel on Earth Science Applications and Societal Objectives, Space Studies Board, National Research Council, which published Earth Science and Applications from Space: National Imperatives for the Next Decade and Beyond, 2005-2006; Panel on Options to Ensure the Climate Record from the NPOESS and GOES-R Spacecraft, Space Studies Board, National Research Council, which published Options to Ensure the Climate Record from the NPOESS and GOES-R Spacecraft: a Workshop Report, 2007. Dr. Ardanuy was honored in 2007 for his career accomplishments by elevation to the position of Raytheon Engineering Fellow.

He has published >50 publications in the literature, and participates in numerous public service activities, including member of AMS and NAS/NRC Space Studies Board Committees. Dr. Ardanuy has also received multiple recent honors/awards, including Raytheon Excellence in Business Development Award and Raytheon Peer Award for “dedication in the excellence in his work and unimagined expertise in algorithms, ground processing, mission understanding, and mission experience.” ¨ Linkedin Profile www.linkedin.com/pub/philip-ardanuy/9/137/962
