Maj Jason M. Bindewald is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Graduate School of Engineering and Management, Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. He leads funded research programs, develops and instructs graduate-level courses, directs and advises graduate students, and represents the Air Force as an expert in autonomous systems.

Maj Bindewald received his commission in April 2007 through Officer Training school after graduation from Gettysburg College, Gettysburg, Pa. During his 10 year career, he has served as a Cyber Operations officer and a Developmental Engineering. At his first assignment he served in various leadership positions within the 375th Communications Squadron, Scott AFB, Ill. Maj Bindewald then earned his Master’s degree as a Distinguished Graduate of the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. Prior to his current position, the Major successfully earned his Doctorate of Philosophy degree in Computer Science from the same institution.
