Giuseppe A. Fabrizio received his B.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Adelaide, South Australia, in 1992 and 2000. Since 1993, Dr Fabrizio has been with Australia’s Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group. From 2005 to 2015, he led the Electronic Warfare and Signal Processing section of the high frequency (HF) radar branch. In that role, he was responsible for the development and practical implementation of innovative electronic protection methods and robust adaptive array processing techniques to enhance the operational performance of the Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN). In 2016, Dr Fabrizio was appointed to Group Leader of the Microwave Radar Systems Science and Technology Capability in DST Group. In his current position, Dr Fabrizio has responsibility for all facets of research and development in active and passive phased-array radar systems (excluding HF) as well as providing advice to Government on major Defence acquisition projects. Dr Fabrizio is a Fellow of the IEEE and is the principal author of over 60 peer-reviewed journal and conference publications. He is twice the co-recipient of the prestigious M. Barry Carlton Award for the best paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems (AES) in 2003 and 2004. In 2007, he received the coveted DST Group Science and Engineering Excellence award for contributions to robust adaptive array processing applied in JORN. In the same year, he was granted a DST Group Science Fellowship to pursue collaborative research at La Sapienza University in Rome, Italy. Dr Fabrizio has delivered seven OTH radar tutorials in the national and international IEEE Radar Conference series. He is an Australian representative of the IEEE International Radar Systems Panel and is an AES Society Distinguished Lecturer. He served as Vice President of Education on the AES Board of Governors (2012-2015) and is currently serving as the AESS Executive Vice President (2015-2017). Dr Fabrizio has collaborated with several international defence agencies including NRL, AFRL, IARPA, DRDC and ONERA under MoU agreements and has represented Australia in NATO SET-179,182 and 227 task-group activities. He has engaged extensively with private industry, including Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems and CEA Technologies, and collaborated with numerous academic institutions in Australia and abroad. Dr. Fabrizio received the distinguished IEEE Fred Nathanson Memorial Radar Award in 2011 for his contributions to OTH radar and radar signal processing. His is the sole author of the text “High Frequency Over-the-Horizon Radar –Fundamental Principles, Signal Processing and Practical Applications”, McGraw-Hill, NY, 2013.
