BlueHalo: Dayton, OH Oct 2022 - Present
Senior Principal Scientist
DiDacTex, LLC: Dayton, OH May 2014 – Present
Founder / Principal
Created a women owned small business that focuses on extracting information within images. Boettcher runs the day to day operations of DiDacTex, Research and Development and performed direct support to customers. Currently, DiDacTex is for my educational outreach.
InfoSciTex a DCS Corporation: Dayton, OH Sept. 2012- April 2015
Physicist / Technical Leader
Technical leader for the Automatic Human Threat Detection group for AFRL’s Human MASINT program. Lead a group of computer scientist to create detection and classification algorithms of humans in EO imagery and Radar signatures. Personal research includes automatic classification of a person’s gender in EO FMV imagery (presented at MSS 2014) using extracted limb size. Examined human bio-metric relation to help uniquely identify a person (IEEE H&S 2015) and predict age. This research involves extracting silhouettes, developing detection algorithms, calibrating imagery: lab measure and from single imagery, and extracting anthropomorphic measures within the image with/without any meta data.
Jacobs: Dayton, OH Sept. 2011-Sept. 2012
Researcher working on a multifaceted challenge problem for AFRL at Wright Patterson AFB on Hyperspectral Imagery (HSI). The focus is to understand the variables that affect performance in automatic detection algorithms and provide the community with a rich source of data and experiments to further development.
