  • Covers state-of-the-art over-the-horizon (OTH) radar systems
  • OTH radar systems can perform surveillance around the curvature of the Earth, unlike conventional microwave radar
  • Written by leading global expert working on OTH at the Defense Science and Technology Organization (DSTO) in Australia
About the Author

Giuseppe Aureliano Fabrizio, Ph.D., received his electrical engineering and Ph.D. degrees from The University of Adelaide, Australia, in 1992 and 2000 respectively. The Ph.D. degree was awarded for original contributions in the field of signal processing with application to high frequency radar. Since 1993, Dr Fabrizio has been employed by the Defence Science and Technology Organization (DSTO), Australia, where he is currently a Senior Research Scientist leading the EW section of the High Frequency Radar branch. Dr Fabrizio is responsible for the development and implementation of innovative and robust adaptive signal processing techniques to enhance the operational performance of modern OTH radar systems. Dr Fabrizio is the principle author of over 40 peer reviewed journal and conference publications, and is a co-recipient of the prestigious M. Barry Carlton Award for the best paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems on two occasions (2003 and 2004). In 2007, he received the DSTO Science Excellence award for his contributions to adaptive signal processing in OTH radar and was granted a DSTO Defence Science Fellowship to pursue collaborative research in Rome, Italy. Dr Fabrizio has delivered OTH radar tutorials at the 2008 IEEE Radar Conference in Rome, Italy, and at the 2010 IEEE International Radar Conference in Washington D.C. He has served as Australian representative on the International Radar Systems Panel and as international liaison member on two IEEE radar conference boards. Dr. Fabrizio was selected as the recipient of the distinguished IEEE/AESS Fred Nathanson Memorial Radar Award in 2011 for his "Contributions to OTH Radar and Radar Signal Processing".
