Dr. Greg Poe joined the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 1978 where he worked in a variety of applied-mathematics-research areas associated with remote sensing. Since 1984, he has been actively involved in the formulation, execution, and management of a wide range of defense-related efforts spanning theory, experiment, field-testing, systems analysis, program management, and critical review.
Dr. Poe left Livermore to join Photon Research Associates in 1988, and then became an independent consultant in 1990 working for the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization, the Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Office, and others. He served as the principal technical advisor for the Tactical Technology Office of DARPA from 1996 through 1999 and served in the same role for the Advanced Technology Office of DARPA through 2003. Since 1998 he has been a member of the Technology Advisory Group (TAG), which supports the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
In 1996, Dr. Poe founded Logos Technologies, LLC, a defense-and-energy technology company with offices in Virginia, North Carolina, and California. He is the CEO of Logos, which serves customers with a broad-range of technologies and services including system design and integration, remote sensing, information technology, social sciences, bio-fuel and nuclear technology, information security, and field operations. Logos is a leading producer of persistent-surveillance technology and a rapidly emerging developer of alternative-energy technology.
As President of Logos Technologies, Dr. John Marion is in charge of the company’s daily operations. Dr. Marion’s experience includes leading the team that developed and deployed the Constant Hawk payload for Iraq and Afghanistan and numerous advanced technologies for the Intelligence Community, Top Cover, Blue Grass, Blue Devil, Empire Challenge and Trident Spectre.
Dr. Marion was the Program Leader for the Sonoma Persistent Surveillance Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, demonstrating prototypical flight hardware and image processing capability for broad-area persistent surveillance. The system was adopted by the U.S. Army for the Mohawk Stare program, which became Constant Hawk.
Prior to that, Dr. Marion was Associate Director of the NSF-sponsored UC Davis/LLNL Bio-photonics Center and Professor of Pathology, was stationed in Paris, France as the Liaison for the French and American Inertial Confinement Fusion program, and was Hypervelocity Missile Technology Program Leader, developing concepts, CONOPs and technology for hypervelocity missiles and kinetic kill vehicles for Strategic Defense. Earlier assignments at LLNL were in the laser materials areas. Dr. Marion holds a Ph.D. in Materials Science from U. C. Berkeley and is the author of 50 publications.
Prior to joining Logos in 2002, Dr. David Fields was a staff physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His initial assignments were in experimental nuclear physics, where he became proficient in detection and sensor hardware and the analysis of complex multidimensional data. He expanded on that domain knowledge in sensors across the electromagnetic spectrum working programs in a varied set of projects, including laser plasma interactions, weapons physics, x-ray lasers, land mine detection using radar and infrared sensors, and hyperspectral sensor technology that ultimately flew on the WB-57.
In 1996, he became an IPA assignee at DARPA. He managed the Adaptive Spectral Reconnaissance Program that demonstrated the use of hyperspectral sensors as part of an effective real-time reconnaissance system, providing reliable target location and identification data suitable to current battlefield intelligence systems. The Advanced Fire Support System revolutionized fire support by linking a new, smart missile with emerging digital command, communications, and control systems. It transitioned to the Army as the NLOS-LS. He led several other programs in sensors, propulsion, non-lethal weapons, and defense architecture.
Since leaving DARPA, Dr. Fields has provided technical analysis and programmatic support to NGA, NRO, DARPA, MDA, and the U.S. Army.
Dr. Fields is a native of New Iberia, Louisiana. He received a B.S. in Physics from Tennessee Technological University, Cookeville, Tennessee in 1982 and a Ph.D. in Physics from Michigan State University in 1986. He lives in Northern Virginia with his wife and his children.
