PSG’s trusted leadership and expert technical teams have over 300 years’ collective experience in ISR analytics and data science, complex system-of-systems engineering, modeling and simulation, machine learning and automated image exploitation.
As PSG founder and president, Joe focuses the company on combining core competencies with research initiatives in a defined technology roadmap. His background includes service in the United States Air Force as a research and development engineer, and defense industry chief systems engineer and program manager on major system acquisition programs. He applies his experience with product development and delivery to market of large software development baselines to the PSG research agenda. His expertise in space systems, space to ground interfaces, and ground processing of satellite data is built on career experiences with space systems in both the government and industry.
Joe’s interest in systems engineering of complex systems has led the PSG research agenda toward autonomous systems, complex adaptive systems and robotics decision support systems. This research thrust resulted in Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) innovative research awards with the Department of Defense and Department of Energy. Under Joe’s leadership, PSG has forged research relationships with Arizona State University’s Sensors, Signals and Information Processing (SenSIP) industry consortium. This relationship is driving collaborative research in machine learning and artificial intelligence. He has published several technical papers on complex systems, modeling and simulation and systems engineering process maturity.
He entered the Air Force through the Arizona State University R.O.T.C. program and returned to Arizona after service with wife, Sharon, and children, Jared and Megan. He is a member of the International Council of Systems Engineers (INCOSE), and serves as a certified expert of systems engineering. He is also the Arizona State president of the Air Force Association. Joe received his BS in engineering science from Arizona State University and his MS in engineering science from Northrup University in Los Angeles, California.

Gary Mastin is a retired Lockheed Martin Senior Fellow with over 35 years of experience in defense-related research and development (R&D). When Gary wasn’t performing or leading R&D, he was working on programs that were early adopters of new technologies. Prior to joining PSG, Gary worked at the Lockheed Martin corporate level facilitating R&D partnerships with external laboratories, looking for disruptive technologies that could be applied to customer critical missions, and helping shape and implement Lockheed Martin’s corporate technology strategy. Gary is the chief scientist at PSG where his responsibilities include R&D consulting for customers and the pursuit of new technologies complementing PSG’s mission.
Gary has a BA in physics, an MS in electrical engineering, and a PhD in engineering science. His technical expertise is in digital image and signal processing, advanced algorithms (analytics) for remote sensing, and large high-performance computing data centers. In 2005, Gary was a U.S. Government technology fellow. He currently serves on the Chancellor’s Advisory Council for Ottawa University’s Arizona campus and participates in the Sensor, Signal, and Information Processing (SenSIP) NSF Center activities at Arizona State University.
