Lorenzo Lo Monte, PhD
Dr. Lo Monte has comprehensive experience in applied Radar, RF, DSP, EW system design and prototyping, from small companies, consulting, academia, research institutions, to large defense contractors and government agencies worldwide. He serves as Chief Scientist at Telephonics, a top-100 defense corporation specializing in ISR, with the role of translating research innovations into commercial products. Prior to that, he was an Associate Professor at the University of Dayton, where he created the courses “Intro to Radar,” “Radar/RF Systems Design,” and “Intro to Electronic Warfare.” He was also the Director of the Mumma Radar Laboratory. Dr. Lo Monte has published over 70 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers and two book chapters.
Throughout his career, he gained experience in HF-to-W Band radar systems prototyping, including monopulse, radar transmitters, early-warning radars, multistatic and MIMO radar, ISAR and tomography, GPR, passive HF/VHF/UHF systems, IED/EFP detection, ballistic missile defense radar, resonance exploitation, RF/IR integration, DRFM, EA/EP/ES, AMTI/GMTI/MMTI, clutter modeling and study, antenna/microwave design and measurements, instrumentation control, computational electromagnetics, inverse scattering, DSP, electrical/mechanical CAD design.
Dr. Lo Monte is very active in the IEEE community, serving in the AES Board of Governor as a member, as the representative to the Sensors Council and the Young Professionals. He was the Vice Chair of the IEEE Dayton Section and Vice President of its AESS Chapter, while now he serves as Secretary at the Long Island Section and Region 1 representative for Young Professionals. Dr. Lo Monte is also the Topical Editor of the IEEE Sensors Journal for “Radiation Sensors,” and serves as a technical reviewer for eleven IEEE journals. Dr. Lo Monte is also an AESS Distinguished Lecturer. He taught many short courses in radar and RF worldwide, with a focus to underserved areas.
