Dr. Pestorius is now retired as Executive Director and Senior Research Engineer at Applied Research Laboratories, UT-Austin.

Previous to accepting this position, he served for twelve years as the Executive Director of the Applied Research Laboratories at the University of Texas at Austin.  ARL: UT is a Navy designated University Affiliated Research Center (UARC) and is one of five such university laboratories officially associated with the US Navy’s science and technology program. 

Dr.  Pestorius is a retired U.  S.  Navy Captain.  He served on active duty for close to 27 years, primarily in the submarine force.  Highlights of his career include command of the USS Mariano G.  Vallejo, SSBN-657, and command of SPAWAR Systems Center (then Naval Ocean Systems Center) in San Diego and serving on the Chief of Naval Operation’s Strategic Studies Group.  He is a graduate of the US Naval Academy and holds graduate degrees from Harvard University (Applied Physics) and the University of Texas at Austin. 

His research areas include underwater acoustics, signal processing, and satellite geodesy and information technology.  He is a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and serves as an officer of the Naval Submarine League. 

Dr. Pestorius will discuss ARL: UT’s association with the U.  S.  Navy’s Submarine force.
