George Kadziolka obtained the B. Eng. Degree in Engineering Physics from McMaster University in 1987. During his final year, he
was a teaching assistant for a senior year physics lab course in Data Acquisition and Computer Control. He also designed and constructed an array processor for a PC compatible computer, as part of a senior year thesis project.
From 1987 to 1995 and 1998 to 1999, he worked for Northrop Grumman - Canada, Ltd (formerly Westinghouse Canada Inc.) where, as a
sonar systems engineer, he was responsible for the development of underwater acoustic systems, primarily for ASW. This included the development of a MIMD signal processor with integrated data acquisition, DSP algorithm development for both active and passive sonar, and sensor/telemetry system development for hull mount and towed array sonars. From 1996 to 1997, he worked for Wescam as a systems engineer, where he was responsible for the integration of avionics, including gyro stabilized imaging sensors, remote control, and telemetry systems, to various platforms including an unmanned blimp, and both fixed and rotary winged aircraft. Since its incorporation in 1999, he has worked with Kaztek Engineering Inc (in Canada) and Kaztek Systems (in the US). Specific development projects with Kaztek include:
- A Multichannel DSP based PID Controller for a Piezo Actuator Shape Control System
- An Acoustic Signature Analysis System for a QC Application
- A High Ambient Temperature (2500 deg F) Data Logger
- A Robotics Vision and 2 way Audio System
- 3 Phase Motor Controller (soft start/power factor correction)
- Video Image Processor
- Ethernet Communications and Firmware Control Infrastructure for a Wafer Measurement Instrument
- MEMS IMU Development
- High Speed (250 MS/sec) Data Acquisition System
- EM Field Analysis Instrumentation
He has been providing Analog Devices processor workshops worldwide since 2000.
