Dr. Dale Fried

Dr. Dale G. Fried is Founder and CEO of 3DEO®, Inc. Our vision is to bring the advanced capabilities of Geiger-mode lidar technology to bear on problems of interest to our commercial and government customers.  Previously, at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, he was co-program manager and technical lead for the Department of Defense-funded MACHETE lidar sensor, the world's most capable lidar system, which is now in daily operational use.  Earlier he was technical lead for the ALIRT Geiger-mode lidar, which mapped over 600,000 square kilometers at 1 m resolution for the DoD.  Prior to MIT Lincoln Lab, Dale was at Clarendon Photonics, an MIT venture-backed startup in the telecom sector.  Dr. Fried earned the PhD in Atomic Physics at MIT in 1999 for the experimental realization of Bose-Einstein condensation in trapped ultracold atomic hydrogen.  He has been granted nine patents and has co-authored numerous publications.
