  Alfonso FARINA, LFIEEE, FIET, FREng, Fellow of EURASIP, received the degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Rome (IT) in 1973. In 1974, he joined Selenia, then Selex ES, where he became Director of the Analysis of Integrated Systems Unit and subsequently Director of Engineering of the Large Business Systems Division. In 2012, he was Senior VP and Chief Technology Officer of the company, reporting directly to the President. From 2013 to 2014, he was senior advisor to the CTO. He retired in October 2014. From 1979 to 1985, he was also professor of “Radar Techniques” at the University of Naples (IT). He is the author of more than 800 peer-reviewed technical publications and of books and monographs (published worldwide), some of them also translated in to Russian and Chinese. He is consultant to Leonardo S.p.A. “Land & Naval Defence Electronics Division”, Rome (I).


  Dr. Mark E Davis has over 50 years’ experience in Radar technology and systems development. He has held senior management positions in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Air Force Research Laboratory, and General Electric Aerospace. At DARPA, he was the program manager on both the foliage penetration (FOPEN) radar advanced development program and the GeoSAR foliage penetration mapping radar. Dr. Davis wrote the text: Foliage Penetration Radar – Detection and Characterization of Objects Under Trees, published by Scitech Raleigh NC in March 2011,

  His education includes a PhD in Physics from The Ohio State University, and Bachelor and Master’s Degrees in Electrical Engineering from Syracuse University. He is a Life Fellow of both the IEEE and Military Sensing Symposia, and a member of the IEEE Aerospace Electronics Systems Society Board of Governors, VP Conferences, and past-Chair the Radar Systems Panel. He is the 2011 recipient of the AESS Warren D White Award for Excellence in Radar Engineering, and the 2018 IEEE Dennis J. Pickard Medal for Radar Technologies and Applications.


  Dr Hobbs leads Cranfield University’s Space Group.  Cranfield is a leading UK university for space engineering and runs the MSc in Astronautics and Space Engineering.  Dr Hobbs’ training is in physics and mathematics (at Cambridge University), and he has worked in instrumentation, data processing and system engineering for projects ranging from the aerodynamic performance of kites and insect migration to space debris mitigation.  His research has included radar system design and applications for the last 30 years and he is one of the leading European experts for geosynchronous radar.  He works with Beijing Institute of Technology as a “111 program scholar” in this area; his first visit to China was in 2007.  Dr Hobbs leads the G-CLASS science team proposing a geosynchronous radar for development in Europe.


  Aly E. Fathy (S’82–M’84–SM’92–F’04) received the B.S.E.E. degree, B.S. degree in pure and applied mathematics, and M.S.E.E. degree from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, in 1975, 1979, and 1980, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the Polytechnic Institute of New York, Brooklyn, in 1984. In February 1985, he joined the RCA Research Laboratory (Sarnoff)/ (currently SRI International), Princeton, NJ, as a Member of the Technical Staff. In 2001, he became a Senior Member of the Technical Staff. While with the Sarnoff Corporation, he was engaged in the research and development of various enabling technologies such as high-Tc superconductors, low-temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC), and reconfigurable holographic antennas. He was also an Adjunct Professor with the Cooper Union School of Engineering, New York, NY. In August 2003, he joined the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, currently he is a Professor and head of the antenna labs.   He has authored or coauthored numerous transactions and conference papers. He holds 12 U.S. patents.

  His current research interests include DBS Antennas, wireless reconfigurable antennas, see-through walls, UWB systems, and high-efficiency high-linearity combining of digital signals for base-station amplifiers. He has developed various microwave components/subsystems such as holographic reconfigurable antennas, radial combiners, direct broadcast antennas (DBSs), speed sensors, and low-temperature co-fired ceramic packages for mixed-signal applications. Dr. Fathy is a member of Sigma Xi and Eta Kappa Nu. He is an active member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (IEEE MTT-S) International Microwave Symposium (IMS) Technical Program Committee (TPC), the IEEE Antenna and Propagation Symposium, and the IEEE Radio and Wireless Steering Committee. He was the general chair of the 2008 IEEE Radio Wireless Conference.

  He was the recipient of five Sarnoff Outstanding Achievement Awards (1988, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1999), Gonzalez family research excellence award (2005), two research excellence awards from the College of Engineering, University of Tennessee (2009, 2011), Lamar Alexander Chancellor’s Excellence Award in superior teaching and scholarship in 2011, research and creative achievement award in 2013, and in 2014 he was recognized by the Excellence in Graduate Mentoring and Advising award.  Aly is a fellow of IEEE society.


  Ozlem Kilic received her D.Sc. and M.S. degrees from the George Washington University, Washington, DC in 1991 and 1996, respectively, and B.S. degree from the Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey in 1989, all in electrical engineering.  She joined the Catholic University of America in 2005, where she is currently serving as the department chair. Prior to that, she was an Electronics Engineer at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Adelphi MD, where she managed Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Programs for the development of hybrid numerical electromagnetic tools. Dr. Kilic has over five years of industry experience at COMSAT Laboratories as a Senior Member of the Technical Staff and a Program Manager with specialization in satellite communications, link modeling and analysis, and phased arrays and reflector antennas for satellite communications system.
