Speaker information

Professor Hugh Griffiths, Thales/Royal Academy of Engineering Chair of RF Sensors, UCL, Hugh Griffiths holds the THALES/Royal Academy Chair of RF Sensors in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University College London, England. From 2006 – 2008 he was Principal of the Defence Academy of Management and Technology, Shrivenham. He received the MA degree in Physics from Oxford University in 1975, then spent three years working in industry, before joining University College London, where he received the PhD degree in 1986 and the DSc(Eng) degree in 2000, and served as Head of Department from 2001 – 2006.

Radar has been around for more than a century. It plays a vital part in applications such as air traffic control, environmental monitoring and in defence. Ever more demanding requirements, as well as congestion of the electromagnetic spectrum means that conventional approaches are no longer optimum, and intelligent, adaptive and even distributed systems will be necessary in the future. The lecture will review some of these approaches and the research that is necessary to realise them.
