SPS Atlanta Distinguished Industry Seminar @ GT – Radar Role: from Underground to Outer Space

November 13, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Atlanta Signal Processing Chapter is honored to host Distinguished Industry Speaker Dr. Alfonso Farina for a seminar on Radar technologies at Giorgia Tech.

Dr. Farina lecture will provide an in-depth look into the role of radar in several fields of engineering, providing a brief historical overview and presenting several real applications. This will include an overview of Radar applications from underground to earth imaging and Space Situational Awareness (SSA), SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) and SAR differential interferometry, mitigating the electromagnetic spectrum erosion, SKA (Square Kilometer Array) for radio astronomy, and the first detection of gravitational waves by dispersed interferometers. In conclusion, Dr. Farina will look at the future of Radar, and what is coming next.

The IEEE SP Distinguished Industry Speaker (DIS) Program provides means for chapters to have access to individuals who are recognized experts with a background in industrial applications in the signal processing area and are well versed in the ongoing issues and activities in industry. 

Dr. Farina has more than 30 years of experience in radar systems and radar signal processing in both industry and academia. His achievements are recognized internationally with more than 700 peer reviewed publications and some very prestigious awards, including the IEEE Dennis J. Picard Medal for Radar Technologies and Application in 2010 and the appointment to International Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, U.K. in 2005.
