Team

Bellerophon Mobile ’s core team includes:

Thomas Wambold is a co-founder of Bellerophon Mobile , and previous graduate research fellow in the Applied Informatics and Secure Wireless Agent Testbed research groups at Drexel University. He has been a key developer for multiple mobile ad hoc networking projects for DARPA and US Army CERDEC. He has also previously interned in the WNAN program at Raytheon BBN Technologies, the Networks and Communication Systems Branch of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), and the Agent Technology Center of the Czech Technical University. Wambold has been a significant contributor to NRL's Nack-Oriented Reliable Multicast (NORM) implementation, Boeing/NRL's Common Open Research Emulator (CORE) network emulator, the NS-3 network simulator, and other open source projects. He is also the developer of the open source XMP3 lightweight pluggable XMPP server and the widely used EZProxy Redirect extension for Chrome.

 

Joseph Kopena is a co-founder of Bellerophon Mobile , and previous graduate research fellow in the Applied Informatics Group, Secure Wireless Agent Testbed, Geometric and Intelligent Computing Laboratory, and Intelligent Time-Critical System Laboratory research groups at Drexel University. He has developed and lead projects in mobile ad hoc, content-based, and delay tolerant networking for DARPA, NSF, US Army CERDEC, ONR, and DISA. He has also conducted significant research and development in artificial intelligence for the NSF and US Army CERDEC, specifically on the Semantic Web, ontology-based integration, multi-agent systems and frameworks, and engineering design. Kopena has previously interned at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Agent Technology Center of the Czech Technical University. In the past he developed the OWLJessKB open source Semantic Web ontology reasoner, and has been a significant contributor to the NS-3 open source network simulator project as well as an active participant in the IETF MANET and other working groups. He is also the developer for the RocketHaxe open source game library, used in games with hundreds of thousands of players. Publications are available at tjkopena.com.
