Among his leading inventions are: a) the UroCycler® which has been clinically proven to reduce 91% of fatal catheter-associated urinary tract infections; b) ROSA, the world’s first Nuclear Service Robot—a complex, high-tech robotic system for the maintenance, decontamination, and refueling of nuclear reactor electric power generation facilities; and c) the first imaging laser radar system (as CEO and founder of Laser Optical Corp); among other breakthrough innovations. Flinchbaugh holds 11 U.S. patents and founded four Florida companies. He is a Fellow of IEEE, Laser Institute of America, Optica (formerly the Optical Society of America), and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.

    The Florida Inventors Hall of Fame honors and celebrates inventors whose achievements have advanced the quality of life for Floridians, the state of Florida and the nation.

    Inductees are selected annually through a nomination process open to all inventors (living or deceased) with a connection to the state of Florida. The nominations are reviewed by a Selection Committee made up of distinguished experts in relevant fields of innovation.

    The 2023 class of distinguished inventors will be formally inducted into the Florida Inventors Hall of Fame at the 10th Anniversary Induction Ceremony and Gala on Friday, Oct. 6, 2023 at the Tampa Marriott Water Street in Downtown Tampa.
