We welcome suggestions from members on how the AESS can improve.

Wolfgang Koch, VP Member Services
Jane Buckingham, AESS Executive Assistant


Summer is approaching for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, so it's time to brighten up our smiles! I hope you're able to dedicate the next few months to the activities you love the most: family, holidays, adventures, and maybe work, possibly without compelling deadlines

In this third edition of the2018 QEB we report great accomplishments of AESS members, as several awards have been presented recently to colleagues and friends. Please join me in congratulating all the awards winners, whose contributions make AESS an extraordinary society to work and learn. A new section entitled "Society Happenings" has been introduced, which includes contributions from AESS members leading activities or promoting initiatives within the Society. In this issue we have the message from Dr. Kathleen A. Kramer, VP Education, that illustrates, with her customary enthusiasm, the many opportunities for our young members. This edition also features a new article for the section "The story behind a success", written by the recipients of the Student Paper Competition Awards at the 2018 IEEE Radar Conference in Oklahoma City. I hope their stories will encourage student members to actively participate in AESS conferences by submitting their outstanding works. To this purpose, please have a look at the list of upcoming conferences and related deadlines, as well as announcements for journal special issues and AESS Awards, and start planning for the remainder of the year!

Warmest regards,

Fabiola Colone
Editor-in-Chief, AESS QEB

As the recipients of the Student Paper Competition Awards at the 2018 IEEE Radar Conference, it is our pleasure to share our success with the AESS community.

First, let us express our sincere gratitude to those who were involved in organizing this competition. In particular, we would like to take this chance to thank Dr. Brian Cordill and Dr. James McSpadden not only for the perfect organization of the contest but also for calming down our nerves before our presentation. Special thanks to the panel of judges who attended our special closed-door session, instead of enjoying the sunset view over Oklahoma City and the happy hour that the conference had generously offered. Our gratitude also goes to everyone who stopped by and congratulated with us, we feel lucky to have had the opportunity of sharing our work in such a valid environment.

Now, for those of you who didn't get the chance to see our presentations or who only saw us from afar the night of the banquet, we would like to take this chance to tell you a little bit about ourselves.

Samuel Prager
It is with great honor that I share my story with the AESS community as the recipient of the IEEE Radar Conference 2018 best student paper award. I am fortunate to have received guidance from a number of highly esteemed and talented mentors; My advisor, Professor Mahta Moghaddam, an infinite source of wisdom and exemplary excellence, Professor John Stang, Dr. Tushar Thrivikraman, Dr. Mark Haynes and Dr. David Hawkins, whom I thank for their creativity and invaluable expertise. The foundation of any successful endeavor is the support of giants and I feel lucky to be surrounded by such exceptional people.

I am from Sacramento, California where I was raised to love the outdoors. I have found that the meditative power of a long hike on a great trail to be the best source of creativity and inspiration. Akin to a colony of ants or a hive of bees, my research focus is the development of sensor platforms that work together to perform radar tasks in a cooperative, dynamic manner. At the core of this effort is the development of algorithms and methods for implementing multi-mode radar systems within a single low-cost and accessible hardware platform.

In our paper titled "Ultra-Wideband Synthesis for High-Range Resolution Software Defined Radar," we explore one such implementation and demonstrate the USRP platforms potential for such sensors. It is our belief that autonomous sensor networks will soon perform many radar and imaging tasks as a lower cost and higher effectiveness than traditional systems. Our continued work is in the conceptualization and development of these smart sensors with the forward-looking view of their place in future scientific efforts.

Francesca Filippini
I felt truly honored to have my work, titled "Target DoA estimation in passive radar using non-uniform linear arrays and multiple frequency channels," selected among the three best student papers at the 2018 IEEE Radar Conference, an accomplishment I could not have reached alone.

My deepest gratitude goes to my mentor Professor Fabiola Colone, for her unwavering support and never failing to push me to give my best to whatever task I am facing. I also would like to thank all the members of the Radar Remote Sensing and Navigation research group at Sapienza, a team I'm lucky enough to work with, for creating a working environment which is not only stimulating and challenging, but also comfortable and pleasant to be in, that makes me very happy to go to work every day.

The goal with this work as well as with my PhD research is to push the boundaries of passive radar systems a bit forward. I am determined to bring something new to the table with the research I am leading and with all the work that I hope will follow in the future.

Surely, seeing my work get recognition in an environment filled with people and professionals I admire is a tremendous incentive to go forward with the research and to work hard to reach my goals, giving my very best.

Amir Laribi
As one of the top three award winners of the IEEE Radar Conference 2018, i am very honored to share my experience as a PhD student and member of the radar team at Daimler research and development center in Ulm, Germany. The radar team in Ulm started more than 40 years ago with the design of mm-wave components, among others for a 35 GHz automotive collision avoidance radar. Since then team members stayed with same company, however, the name changed from AEG-Telefunken to AEG to Daimler-Benz Aerospace to DaimlerChrysler Aerospace and finally to Daimler AG.

During my journey at Daimler, I had the opportunity to learn from many passionate and devoted colleagues, all committed to implement visions of research and advanced engineering. I had the chance to focus on and push the cutting-edge radar technology in the field of autonomous driving, which is considered as one of the greatest challenges of this decade.

The interactions and discussions with team members helped a lot. I would like to express my special thanks to my advisors Dr. Markus Hahn, Dr. Jürgen Dickmann and my Professor Christian Waldschmidt for their continuous support and invaluable advices. They paved the way not only for my contribution at the AESS IEEE Radar Conference but also provided an environment for thriving and substantial research.

Our paper "Vertical Doppler Beam Sharpening Goes Self-Parking" tackles the problem of radar-based height estimation of objects located in self-driving vehicle's surroundings. This task is essential for collision avoidance systems and for the achievement of full autonomous driving, as it enables traversability classification of the sensed targets and offers a three-dimensional environment for better localization and mapping.

Compared to other height estimation approaches, our proposed method is a hardware efficient software-based solution, which does not require multiple vertical transmitting / receiving antennas.

2018 marks the beginning of the second year of this innovative AESS program that helps connect students and young professionals with more experienced AESS members for two-way exchange. This program has been a great success. In 2017 we registered 28 new mentees into the program, matching 15 with a mentor, with 9 in the process of being matched.

Our vision is a flexible international program that is carefully implemented, attentively supported, and singularly focused on providing benefits to AESS members.

We have an excellent core of distinguished international members distributed across industry, academia, and government, who are experts in their field and who are willing to share their time and experience to develop future leaders within the AESS.

More information is available on the
AESS website. Mentors and mentees, it is easy to sign up for the program. Join us today!
In May 2018, Mentor, Ganesh Subramanian met at his lab with Tamil Selvan and Arvind Sundaram, students he'd met through the AESS Mentorship Program. During their meeting he introduced the IEEE Aerospace Mentoring Program, discussed the applications of UAV, explained FAA, and went over other countries' guidelines to operate UAV.

Here's what Mentee, Tamil Selvan had this to say about the AESS Mentoring Program: "First, I would like to thank the IEEE mentor program to give me this opportunity. Today I met with my mentor Dr. Ganesh Subramanian. He has given a brief intro about aerial robotics. We also drafted to build the octocopter and the process will be started within two weeks."

Piotr Graca - IEEE Young Professionals AG Chair, Poland Section

Young Professionals Meet-Ups in Poland Section play a significant role in the national IEEE community and are the biggest networking events dedicated not only to Young Professionals, but also to students, scientists, industry representatives, and anyone seeking new international contacts.

This year the event was organized at the 22nd International Microwave and Radar Conference (MIKON 2018), which was a part of the 8th Microwave and Radar Week (MRW 2018). It was held on May 16, in Poznan (one of the Poland's oldest cities) and had nearly 130 attendees, including both IEEE members and non-IEEE members, from countries including: Austria, Belgium, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, and the USA.

The meet-up started at 6:00 PM and began with opening speech from Piotr Graca (IEEE YP Chair, Poland Section) who also provided brief information about YP activities in Poland. Next the welcoming speeches were given by Prof. Krzysztof Kulpa (MIKON 2018 General Chair), Prof. Mariusz Malinowski (IEEE Poland Section Chair), Prof. Dominique Schreurs (MTTS President) and Prof. Jacek Misiurewicz (AESS Representative, AP/MTT/AES Joint Chapter Vice-Chair). Their messages were focused on the importance of IEEE as well as Societies membership in the professional life. Lastly, with more than three hours of networking all attendees had a chance to expand their personal and professional contacts, learn about the IEEE, Societies and YP program benefits and discuss new career possibilities.

It should be emphasized that the event was organized by IEEE Poland Section - Young Professionals Affinity Group and co-sponsored by two IEEE Societies: Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society (AESS) and Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTTS).

Thanks to their great support all participants could join the event for free and enjoy nice food and drinks.

The organizing YP team would like to especially thank Lorenzo Lo Monte for his support in organizing the event and looks forward to future cooperation.

The IEEE Central Texas Section Joint Chapter SMC/AES 28 met on 23 February 2018 to celebrate Engineer's Week by hearing a presentation from Ron Mathis on "Systems Engineering - The Wright Way."

In his book Vision of a Flying Machine, Peter Jakab stated the question remains "How were these two men, working essentially alone, with little formal scientific or technical training, able to solve a problem so complex and demanding as heavier-than-air flight in only a few short years, when it had defied better known experimenters for centuries?" Mark Eppler's book, The Wright Way, attempts to answer that question. Mr. Mathis reviewed the Wright Brothers' many accomplishments in overcoming the technical challenges of human flight and described several approaches that these pioneers of aviation adopted, which are examples of fundamental systems engineering practices.

About the speaker: Ron Mathis is a Senior Program Manager in the Department of Electromechanical and Optical Systems of the Applied Physics Division at Southwest Research Institute. He is an ardent enthusiast of early aviation, the individuals, their methods and attempts to achieve flight.

IEEE Central Texas Section Joint Chapter SMC/AES 28 met on 16 March 2018 to hear a technical presentation by Daniel A. Tazartes of Northrop Grumman, who was attending the Gyro and Accelerometer technical panel meeting in San Antonio, Texas that week. The subject of his technical presentation was "A Historical Perspective on Inertial Navigation." This was a great example of collaboration between a technical panel and local chapter, to allow members of the Central Texas Section to learn more about this interesting technical field-of-interest.

Inertial navigation provides a unique ability to know where one has been, where one is currently, and where one is going, given only a starting position. The laws of physics permit the sensing of dynamic motion without external information, making inertial systems impervious to jamming, masking, or spoofing. Measurements of six degrees of freedom are required - three linear accelerations, and three angular rates - to fully propagate the velocity, position, and orientation of the system. The first inertial sensors are traced to the early 19th century and specialized inertial guidance systems appeared in the 1940s, yet inertial navigation systems did not become commonplace until the 1960s. This is largely due to the fact that requirements for navigation accuracy inertial sensors - accelerometers and gyroscopes - are very challenging. In the past fifty years, significant evolutionary and revolutionary changes have taken place in the designs of inertial sensors and systems. These include the progression from fluid-filled to dry instruments and the transition from mechanically complex stabilized inertial platforms to computationally intensive strapdown systems. Gyroscopes have evolved from large mechanical devices to highly refined precision mechanical sensors. Optical rotation sensors such as the ring laser gyro and the fiber optic gyro have enabled new system designs and capabilities. Coriolis vibratory gyroscopes such as the hemispherical resonator gyro are capable of extreme accuracy and reliability; new opportunities for miniaturizing these types of sensors will lead to new classes of accuracy for inertial navigation systems. Advanced gyroscope technologies such as the nuclear magnetic resonance gyroscope which uses atomic spin to detect rotation have already been demonstrated to achieve navigation accuracy requirements. Cold atom technologies may also provide the opportunity for very high accuracy accelerometers and gyroscopes in the future. Inertial navigation technologies and applications of the past, present, and future are discussed.

About the speaker: Daniel Tazartes is a Northrop Grumman Fellow at Northrop Grumman's Woodland Hills campus where he has successfully introduced several generations of new instrument technologies into inertial and integrated navigation systems. Mr. Tazartes holds 62 patents in the fields of inertial sensors, control algorithms, electronics, and signal processing and has published numerous articles and reference texts on inertial sensors and on strapdown navigation technology.

Mr. Tazartes is the 2010 recipient of the IEEE's Aerospace and Electronics Systems Pioneer award for his work in optical gyroscopes and strapdown navigation systems and was recognized as the Engineers' Council 2010 Engineer of the Year. He is the recipient of the Institute of Navigation's 2002 P.V.H. Weems Award, the Engineers' Council 2000 Distinguished Engineering Achievement Award, and the Litton Industries Advanced Technology Awards in 1992, 1995, and 2000.

He is a member of the Institute of Navigation and of IEEE. He received his M.S.E.E from the California Institute of Technology and his B.S. in Physics from the University of California at Los Angeles.

Education - Expanding Offerings and Serving More Members
By Kathleen Kramer, AESS VP Education

AESS Education Committee has a mission to meet the life-long learning needs of the society's diverse set of members by providing timely, relevant and interesting topics in the AESS technical fields interest. Our core offerings include Distinguished Lectures and Tutorials, and we've been expanding our Education offerings to better reach and engage emerging engineer members with a portfolio of young professional and student activities, including the Robert T. Hill Dissertation Award. AESS educational contributions are exceptional in breadth of technical interests, diversity of prerequisite experience, breadth of leadership engagement, and impact on membership.

AESS Distinguished Lecturer and Tutorial Program is in many ways first among our Education offerings. The program has dramatically increased in recent years, both in terms of lectures and the Distinguished Lecturers who give them, growing 600% in the last five years to reach 95 lectures last year. This was accomplished by providing more Distinguished Lecturers from a wider array of regions and by representing a stronger breadth of the technical areas of AESS, based upon a gap analysis of technical and geographic needs across the society. The AESS Short Course Initiative, piloted in the South Australia Chapter and led by society Distinguished Lecturers, looks to expand from the single lecture format into a one-day or few-day workshop that meets the educational needs of local industry-based members.

While the Distinguished Lecturer and Tutorial Program and its 23 lecturers has long been the primary connection locally, we have expanded the availability of our Education offerings with the new AESS Resource Center portal. This collaboration between Education and Publications is designed to directly deliver content to members. It provides not only AESS Tutorials online, but also an opportunity for CEUs, along with one stop shopping for AESS publications, education, research tools, and data to support members' educational, career, and research needs.

In addition to collaborating with Publications, the committee, which includes AESS Board of Governors members Fredrik Gustafsson, Lance Kaplan, Lorenzo Lo Monte, Jason Williams, sees AESS Conferences as an important resource for expert and timely content. We have a major initiative to better connect Education resources from these into the AESS Resource Center - including FUSION2018, the International Conference on Information Fusion in Cambridge and RADAR2018, the International Radar Conference in Brisbane.

The Education Committee has also been dedicating a portion of virtually every new initiative, activity and conference to benefit the Education needs of emerging engineer members. These include the "Radar Summer School" offered at the IEEE Radar Conference, and involvement in IEEE Young Professionals signature events where AESS technical interests can be advanced, including the IEEE Rising Stars Conference and Young Professionals in Space.
