  Stuart J. Anderson received the B.Sc. (1st Class Honours) and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Western Australia in 1968 and 1972 respectively. As a Defence Scholarship student, he worked on the early Australian HF radar program in 1965-67, studying re-entry phenomena. In 1974, he was invited to join the team being assembled in the Australian Defence Science and Technology Organization to develop the Jindalee over-the-horizon radar system where he assumed responsibility for ocean surveillance and remote sensing. In the 1980’s he spent a year at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC, working as a visiting scientist on the US Navy Relocatable OTH Radar (ROTHR), and another year in the UK working on a related joint UK-US project. In 1998-99 he spent some months on attachment to the French OTHR project Nostradamus.

  Stuart holds or has held adjunct professor appointments at several Australian universities, including his principal appointment in the Physics Department at the University of Adelaide, having retired from DSTO in 2014 at age 68. In addition, Stuart is a professor at the Université Rennes I, France, which, in 2005, awarded him an honorary doctorate for his contributions to radar science. He is a regular visiting professor at University College London and at the Université Paris-Sorbonne, and remains highly active in research related to HF radar, including projects underway in ionospheric physics, oceanography, electromagnetic scattering, radiowave propagation, signal processing, inverse problems, nonlinear optimization and microwave polarimetry. Stuart was the recipient of the 1992 Australian Minister of Defence Science Award for Research Achievement. He has published well over 350 journal papers, conference papers, book chapters, and reports in these fields, and has presented numerous tutorials and lecture courses on HF radar and mathematical techniques. He is the principal author of the chapter on OTH radar in the authoritative Radar Handbook.
