Australian Forests and Timber - - Foresttech -

JOES­CAN, Inc., a mar­ket leader in 3-D laser scan­ning technology, has ap­pointed Jason Farmer as vice pres­i­dent of en­gi­neer­ing who will man­age en­gi­neer­ing, over­see prod­uct de­vel­op­ment and con­trib­ute to strate­gic di­rec­tion.

“The mar­ket for JoeS­can’s prod­ucts is strong,” says Joey Nel­son, pres­i­dent and founder of JoeS­can. “The com­pany has grown con­sid­er­ably over the past few years. Jason brings a wealth of en­gi­neer­ing and man­age­ment ex­pe­ri­ence to our team that will help ac­cel­er­ate JoeS­can’s growth.”

Farmer started his ca­reer at Acu­light (now Lock­heed Martin Acu­light), where he led nu­mer­ous technology de­vel­op­ment pro­grams in solid state lasers and non­lin­ear op­tics. The suc­cess of these pro­grams led him to co-found a spin-out com­pany, nLight, with col­leagues from Acu­light. At nLight, Farmer held a se­ries of tech­ni­cal and man­age­ment roles in R&D, prod­uct de­vel­op­ment and busi­ness unit man­age­ment. He was in­stru­men­tal in help­ing the com­pany raise ven­ture cap­i­tal from lead­ing firms and grow­ing the com­pany to over 400 em­ploy­ees.

“JoeS­can has a great core technology and a strong team,” says Farmer. “I am ex­cited to work with them to en­hance and ac­cel­er­ate JoeS­can’s prod­uct roadmap.”

Farmer re­ceived his B.S. in Physics from the UCSB and his M.S. in As­tro­phys­i­cal, Plan­e­tary and At­mo­spheric Sci­ences from the CU Boul­der. He has co-chaired tech­ni­cal con­fer­ences, been a prin­ci­pal in­ves­ti­ga­tor on nu­mer­ous gov­ern­ment pro­grams, au­thored tech­ni­cal papers and is an in­ven­tor on over 20 patents.

Founded in 1999 and head­quar­tered in Vancouver, Wash­ing­ton, JoeS­can de­vel­ops re­li­able, easy-to-use 3-D laser scan­ning technology that im­proves re­cov­ery in sawmills.
