Warsaw University of Technology

Prof. Krzysztof S. Kulpa received his M.Sc., Ph.D. and D.Sc. degrees from the Department of Electronic Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) in 1982, 1987 and 2009, respectively. From 1985 to 1988 he was employed at the Institute of Electronic Fundamentals, WUT. From 1988 to 1990 he was an associate professor at the Electrical Engineering Department of the Technical University of Bialystok. From 1990 to 2005 he worked as a scientific consultant in WZR RAWAR. Since 1990 he has been a professor at the Institute of Electronic Systems in WUT. In 2014, he was appointed as a full professor by the President of Poland. Currently, Prof. Kulpa is the head of the Radar Technology Research Group and the Scientific Director of the Defense and Security Research Center at WUT.

Prof Kulpa’s research interests are in the areas of the digital signal processing and radar signal processing. Specifically, his research interests include 2D and 3D maneuvering target tracking, maritime patrol radar, low RCS target detection and tracking, noise and passive radars and synthetic aperture radar imaging. His most recent research interest is in airborne passive radars. Prof Kulpa’s work has been implanted in several radars produced by the Polish radar industry, and he was involved in the creation of the first Polish SAR system. Presently hi is involved in several research projects related to PCL, ESA and Noise radars and also SAR and ISAR imaging.

Prof Kulpa published more than 500 papers in international journals and conferences, and recently authored a book entitled “Signal Processing in Noise Waveform Radar” published by Artech House Publishers.
Prof Kulpa delivered several lectures and seminars at the international conferences and universities in Europe and USA. He regularly serves in the Technical Program Committees of several conferences in the field of radar including the International Radar Symposium IRS (co-chair since 2004), European Synthetic Aperture Radar Conference EUSAR, European Radar Conference EURAD, RADARxx, Fusion, Signal Processing Symposium (chairman since 2003). In 2008, he was a guest-editor for the IET-Radar, Sonar and Navigation Journal; in 2010 and 2011 – for APPA and JET, and in 2014 – for the IEEE AESS System Magazine. Presently, he is an associate editor for the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies, the International Journal of Electronics and Telecommunications and IEEE AES Transaction.
He is an active participant in the NATO’s Science and Technology Organization taking part in SET and SCI panels and Specialist Meetings. In 2005, he was the co-director of NATO’s Advance Study Institute. Currently, he is the Member at Large in NATO STO SET panel. He is also a member of Electronics and Telecomunication section of Polish Academy of Science.
