Tim Schmidt, Vice President of Trilion Quality Systems, is one of the most experienced practitioners of 3D image correlation and point tracking photogrammetry in the world, particularly for field tests and high speed camera applications. Tim has run tests on days, nights and weekends for more than 10 years. He received a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree, with a major in Mechanical Engineering, from Cooper Union in 1989, with a four year full scholarship. He conducted part-time postgraduate research with the Laser and Optical Engineering Research Group at the University of Aberdeen from 1994-1996. Tim was Principal Investigator on Small Business Innovation Research Phase I and Phase II contracts from 2005-2008, "Revolutionary Materials Research Technology for High-Strain-Rate Ordnance Research", sponsored by the Air Force Research Lab Munitions Directorate at Eglin Air Force Base, to develop high speed 3D image correlation for high rate Hopkinson Bar testing. He has been retained as a consultant to NASA through Trilion since 2003, to provide ongoing support of ballistic impact and advanced tests for major programs including the Space Shuttle Return to Flight projects. Tim was presented with a Silver Snoopy award by Astronaut Mike Foreman in November 2011 for his leadership of the Space Shuttle external tank photogrammetry team, which measured the behavior of the external tank as it was filled with liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen at the launch pad. The Silver Snoopy is one of NASA's highest honors, the astronaut's personal award for professional excellence.
