He was one of the early pioneers of modeling and simulation as a technology investment planning tool and for a rapidly changing national security environment, as well as a member of the U.S. delegation to the NATO Y2K integrated process team, a key adviser of the U.S. Air Force Requirements Oversight Council, a co-author of the Defense Critical Technologies Plan for the executive office of the U.S. President, and identified atmospheric refractivity effects on low-altitude radar propagation as well as extended quantum-mechanical computational technique to electromagnetic scattering. Notably, Mr. Stern held the rank of lieutenant colonel during his service in the U.S. Air Force Reserve.

As a prominent listee, Mr. Stern has appeared in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in the East, Who’s Who in the South and Southwest, and Who’s Who in the World. He received a BS with high honors from the University of Florida, followed by a MS in physics in 1977 supported by the J. Hills Miller Memorial Scholarship and the Ford Foundation. He joined the U.S. Army and served until 1979 to the rank of first lieutenant, followed by eight years with the U.S. Air Force with the final rank of captain, at which point he transferred to the Air Force Reserve.
