Dr. Robert H. Rines (1994)

Dr. Robert Rines’ contributions to military technology, specifically high-resolution image-scanning radar and sonar, began with research on modulation techniques for the microwave early-warning system developed secretly during World War II. His patents are the basis for nearly all the high-definition image-scanning radar used to provide early warning, weapons fire-control and artillery- and missile- detection systems used during Operation Desert Storm/Desert Shield.

Dr. Rines earned his bachelor’s degree in physics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, completed his doctorial thesis at Chiao Tung University in China and received an honorary law degree from New England School of Law. He holds more than 60 patents, lectures on patent law and is a successful composer of Broadway shows.

In 1963 Dr. Rines founded the Academy of Applied Science, whose primary mission is stimulating innovative thought in young people and adults. The academy and the Army sponsor the annual National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, a nationwide outreach program that encourages and honors research at the high-school level.

The Signal Regiment inducted him as a Distinguished Member in 1994.
