After retiring from Raytheon Santa Barbara Remote Sensing (SBRS), Dr. Schueler joined Orbital Sciences Corporation in 2008 after leading the Commercially Hosted InfraRed Payload (CHIRP) technical proposal. As CHIRP chief scientist, he coordinated sensor modifications, testing and on-orbit experiment definition. He received degrees in Physics & Astronomy at Louisiana State University, followed by two years at Hughes Aircraft Company teaching F-14 radar, Maverick missile theory and field repair. He earned a Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering at UC Santa Barbara in 1980 under a Howard Hughes Doctoral Fellowship. He has also served on National Research Council (NRC) committees..
