Università "Federico II" di Napoli

Antonio De Maio received the Dr.Eng. (Hons.) and Ph.D. degrees in information engineering from the University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy, in 1998 and 2002, respectively. From October to December 2004, he was a Visiting Researcher with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, Rome, NY, USA. From November to December 2007, he was a Visiting Researcher with the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong. He is currently a Professor with the University of Naples Federico II. His research interest lies in the field of statistical signal processing, with emphasis on radar detection, optimization theory applied to radar signal processing, and multiple-access communications. He is the recipient of the 2010 IEEE Fred Nathanson Memorial Award as the young (less than 40 years of age) AESS Radar Engineer 2010 whose performance is particularly noteworthy as evidenced by contributions to the radar art over a period of several years, with the following citation for “robust CFAR detection, knowledge-based radar signal processing, and waveform design and diversity”. He is the corecipient of the 2013 best paper award (entitled to B. Carlton) of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON AEROSPACE AND ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS with the contribution “Knowledge-Aided (Potentially Cognitive) Transmit Signal and Receive Filter Design in Signal-Dependent Clutter”.

Dr. De Maio is a Fellow of IEEE and has been a member of the IEEE AESS System Panel (2010-2019). He gave many tutorials, co-authored many invited talks, lectured in NATO LS in different countries and on different topics.
Dr. De Maio co-authored more than 300 technical papers (mostly published on IEEE journals/conferences) and acted as the Editor of 5 books on radar topics (detection, waveform design, compressed sensing, cognitive radar).
