Anthony F. Martone received the B.S. (summa cum laude) degree in electrical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA, in 2001 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA, in 2007. He joined the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Adelphi, MD, USA, in 2007 as a researcher in the RF Signal Processing and Modeling branch where his research interests include radar, cognitive radar, sensing through-the-wall technology, spectrum sharing, and radar signal processing. Dr. Martone has established himself as a subject matter expert (SME) for radar spectrum sharing and nonlinear radar research within ARL and academic communities. He is currently leading multiple Cognitive Radar research investigations at ARL where he is overseeing, directing, and collaborating with multiple universities to address spectrum sharing for radar and communication systems, software-defined transceiver control, and adaptive processing techniques.
Dr. Martone received the Army Commanders Award for Civilian Service in December 2011 for his research and development of sensing through the wall signal processing techniques, the ARL-SEDD Honorary Award for Entrepreneurship in 2019, the IET Radar, Sonar & Navigation Premium Award for best paper in 2021 and was named IEEE Fellow in 2023 for “contributions to the development and validation of cognitive radar systems.” He has likewise received multiple Army awards for customer service and mentorship. Since joining ARL, he has authored more than 140 journal and conference publications, 2 book chapters, 10 patents, was invited to draft 5 new spectrum sharing standards for the IEEE 686 Radar Standards document, and provided the Plenary presentation at the 2022 IEEE Radar Conference (New York, NY).
Dr. Martone has served as a Ph.D. committee member for 7 graduate students at The Pennsylvania State University, the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and Bowie State University. He currently serves as the General Chair of the 2023 IEEE Radar Conference, an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems since 2017, and as a member of the Spectral Innovation, Standards, and Publications Committees on the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society Radar Systems Panel since October 2019.
