RFC 1336:

Dr. Leiner joined Advanced Decision Systems in September 1990, where he is responsible for corporate research directions. Advanced Decision Systems is focussed on the creation of information processing technology, systems, and products that enhance decision making power. Prior to joining ADS, Dr. Leiner was Assistant Director of the Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science at NASA Ames Research Center. In that position, he formulated and carried out research programs ranging from the development of advanced computer and communications technologies through to the application of such technologies to scientific research. Prior to coming to RIACS, he was Assistant Director for C3 Technology in the Information Processing Techniques Office of DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). In that position, he was responsible for a broad range of research programs aimed at developing the technology base for large- scale survivable distributed command, control and communication systems. Prior to that, he was Senior Engineering Specialist with Probe Systems, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Georgia Tech, and Research Engineer with GTE Sylvania.

Dr. Leiner received his BEEE from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1967 and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1969 and 1973, respectively. He has done research in a variety of areas, including direction finding systems, spread spectrum communications and detection, data compression theory, image compression, and most recently computer networking and its applications. He has published in these areas in both journals and conferences, and received the best paper of the year award in the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Transactions in 1979 and in the IEEE Communications Magazine in 1984. Dr. Leiner was a Senior Member of the IEEE and a member of ACM, Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu.
