Dr. Friedman (CEO) has been a strong proponent of team collaborations for technology development throughout his career with extensive experience in leading major ($70 million) research, development and manufacturing efforts. Thus in building up the technical capability of Integrated Sensors (I-S), Dr. Friedman built a team of collaborating partners from some of the leading universities and government laboratories in relevant technology fields (see “Collaborating Partners”).
Prior to founding I-S, Dr. Friedman was the Board Chairman and CEO of Photonics Systems, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of ruggedized plasma displays for the U.S. military, NATO and allied countries. Dr. Friedman was a recognized expert in the flat panel display and solar energy industries, having served as co-founder and first Technical Program Manager of the American Display Consortium, an editor and conference chairman for SPIE/IS&T, a member of the U.S. Defense Science Board (High Resolution Systems Task Force), and a technology expert witness to the U.S. Congress having testified before both the U.S. House Subcommittee on Technology & Competitiveness, and the U.S. Senate Governmental Affairs Committee on U.S. Competitiveness.
Dr. Friedman is the inventor of both plasma panel sensors (PPS) and ultra-fast, transmissive (UFT) radiation detectors for real-time beam monitoring of ionizing particles and photons in both vacuum and air. Applications include FLASH-Radiotherapy (i.e. FLASH-RT), external beam radiotherapy (EBRT), nuclear and high energy physics. Dr. Friedman and Integrated Sensors have been awarded 23 U.S. and foreign patents with additional patents pending on our newest FLASH-RT and EBRT technology, patient-specific quality assurance (PSQA), and six-way-cross based Scintillator Beam Monitors (SBM) for nuclear physics. Integrated Sensors has received continuous R&D funding from the U.S. government since 2007, primarily from the U.S. Department of Energy (Office of Nuclear Physics) and from the National Cancer Institute (NIH-NCI).
