Professor Hugh Griffiths
Professor Hugh Griffiths, THALES/Royal Academy of Engineering Chair of RF Sensors in the UCL Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, has been elected President of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society for a two year term from January 2012.
IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society is one of 45 constituent Societies covering different aspects of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Its activities cover engineering of complex systems for space, air, ocean, or ground environments, including navigation, avionics, radar, sonar, and command and control, within industry, academia and government research organisations.
Professor Griffiths has led radar research at UCL for more than 20 years. His group carried out some of the first experiments in passive radar, and recently published first results on the statistical nature of bistatic radar sea clutter. He is a past recipient of the IEEE Nathanson Award and the Maxwell and Mountbatten Premium Awards of the IEE, and he was elected to Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 1997.
