“SPIE’s election of Bob to Fellow is a testament to his leadership in the optics and imaging community,” said Chris Young, president of ITT Exelis
Geospatial Systems. “Bob’s work has influenced and served many across the fields of justice, defense, intelligence, and environmental sensing, making him a tremendous asset not only to our company, but our nation as well.”
A pioneer in modeling the imaging chain of digital cameras, Fiete created the imaging chain model for
IKONOS, the first commercial high-resolution imaging satellite. Fiete also leveraged his expertise to help the FBI and Department of Justice prosecute and convict individuals exploiting children in digital images. He is the author of “Modeling the Imaging Chain of Digital Cameras” and “The Formation of a Digital Image: The Imaging Chain Simplified.” Fiete is also the 2000 recipient of the Rudolf Kingslake Medal, awarded in recognition of the most noteworthy original paper to appear in SPIE’s
Optical Engineering journal.
