Dr. Jenkins holds a doctorate in medicine from Harvard University, where he became interested in computational models of human vision, leading to his interest in computer graphics, and how a 2D image is constructed from a known 3D representation.
In 1994 Jenkins developed 3D geometry processing and translation software that has been licensed to entertainment and industrial clients including Lucas Arts, Blur Studios, and Northrop Grumman. Subsequently, Barry developed the conceptual and technical framework underlying the GPEG visibility event protocol and has implemented the core components of the GPEG encoder in C/C++.
Jenkins is a diplomat of the American Board of Anesthesiology and a member of the American Medical Association, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Association of Computing Machinery and the International Neural Network Society.

Operations Manager & Scrum Master
Mr. Flanigan started his software career in the early 1990's working with Dr. Jenkins to develop 3D geometry processing and translation software. After selling the source code of this software to a 3D content development company called Acuris, Inc. in 1995, he was hired by them to continue the development and expand the capabilities of the software. In 1998, he was hired by Autodesk as a software developer and worked on the development of various products including Actix Technical, Architectural Studio, and the DWF Viewer. In 2001, while still at Autodesk, he began managing teams of developers as a project manager and later as a program manager. In 2013, Mr. Flanigan became a Certified Scrum Master and helped to introduce the Agile Scrum process methodology to a group of ten scrum teams at Envisage Information Systems, a member of the TIAA-CREF group of companies. In 2014, he introduced, trained and coached the first Agile Scrum development team in Volvo Trucks North America and successfully led the team to design and develop a new digital driver display for their instrument panel. Jim is currently the Scrum Master and Agile coach for the Primal Space Development team.
Software Developer & Co-Founder
Before making the switch to C++ development, Matthew worked as a Product Engineer for Analog Devices, Inc's next generation transceiver group where he was the primary engineer responsibly for testing and evaluation of the real-time quadrature-error correction algorithms controlled by the transceiver's embedded micro-processor. His major contributions to the group's transceiver development included a novel automated hardware and software RF testing apparatus, which allowed for high levels of test repeatability and reliability and greatly shortened software release and debug cycles.
Matthew is an avid gamer and is excited to be part of the next step in evolution of game and geometry streaming technology.
Mr. Haentschke received his Master of Science in Microwave Engineering from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. His research focused on Sub-Terahertz LNAs and coupling structures for use in short-range radar applications.
Software Developer & Co-Founder
Charles West is a graduate student working on his Computational Intelligence PhD at NC State University and a full time C++ developer at Primal Space Systems. He is the chair of the Eastern North Carolina IEEE Robotics and Automation chapter and chief organizer of the 2016 IEEE RoboResearch event.
Prior to joining the Primal Space team, he developed drone technology for NC DOT's Next Gen Air Transportation research group including a state estimation system, Differential GPS Update sharing system and a platform which allowed non-skilled spectators to control a live drone safely (shown at the 2015 NC State Fair).
Charles enjoys work with embedded software, neural networks, network applications and computational geometry in C/C++.
Charles received his Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from NC State University and has successfully defended his Computational Intelligence Master's thesis (PylonGPS Differential GPS update sharing software and HyperChord authenticated peer to peer network software).
