History and Future of Radar and EW

Share

Aerospace Electronic Systems, and in particular Radar and EW, are one of the most active yet unappreciated fields in the Electrical Engineering community. The IEEE AESS members accounts for only 1% of the IEEE total, yet the AES market is estimated to be in the range of hundreds of billions of dollars. Radar and EW applications are typically unnoticed by the general public, yet they are the backbone of any military force worldwide, providing defense, security and peace. The history of radar and EW is also intriguing, and the East Coast played a significant role. Robert Buderi considered radar as “the invention that changed the world,” while General Patterson though that radars were the real reason why the Allied forces defeated the Axis powers. This talk will introduce you to the captivating history of radar/EW, leading to the most recent radar/EW systems worldwide and their applications. The talk will show you of what radars can do for the society and what the AES industry is looking for, in particular from young engineers. The talk will end with an overview of the IEEE AESS, its benefits to the members, and in particular to young professionals.

Biography:

Dr. Lo Monte has comprehensive experience in applied Radar, RF, DSP, EW system design and prototyping, from small companies, consulting, academia, research institutions, to large defense contractors and government agencies worldwide. He serves as Chief Scientist at Telephonics, a top-100 defense corporation specializing in ISR, with the role of translating research innovations into commercial products. Prior to that, he was an Associate Professor at the University of Dayton, where he created the courses “Intro to Radar,” “Radar/RF Systems Design,” and “Intro to Electronic Warfare.” He was also the Director of the Mumma Radar Laboratory. Dr. Lo Monte has published over 70 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers and two book chapters.

Throughout his career, he gained experience in HF-to-W Band radar systems prototyping, including monopulse, radar transmitters, early-warning radars, multistatic and MIMO radar, ISAR and tomography, GPR, passive HF/VHF/UHF systems, IED/EFP detection, ballistic missile defense radar, resonance exploitation, RF/IR integration, DRFM, EA/EP/ES, AMTI/GMTI/MMTI, clutter modeling and study, antenna/microwave design and measurements, instrumentation control, computational electromagnetics, inverse scattering, DSP, electrical/mechanical CAD design. 

Dr. Lo Monte is very active in the IEEE community, serving in the AES Board of Governor as a member, as the representative to the Sensors Council and the Young Professionals. He was the Vice Chair of the IEEE Dayton Section and Vice President of its AESS Chapter, while now he serves as Secretary at the Long Island Section and Region 1 representative for Young Professionals. Dr. Lo Monte is also the Topical Editor of the IEEE Sensors Journal for “Radiation Sensors,” and serves as a technical reviewer for eleven IEEE journals. Dr. Lo Monte is also an AESS Distinguished Lecturer. He taught many short courses in radar and RF worldwide, with a focus to underserved areas. Dr. Lo Monte also served as a technical panel member, steering committee member, judge, tutorial instructor, special session organizer, and session chair in many international IEEE conferences.
