Aveillant – which has developed three-dimensional radar systems which can distinguish onshore wind turbines from other aircraft – has appointed an intelligent radar expert as its new chief technology officer.
Professor Chris Baker succeeds Dr Gordon Oswald, who now becomes Chief Science Officer.
Aveillant’s Holographic Radar technology uses a flat-panel stationary array which provide considerable benefits over traditional rotating radars – including high update rate (updating every half second to two seconds); 3D coverage providing real-time target information (in terms of position, elevation and speed) and intelligent characterisation and identification of returns.
With the rapid development of Aveillant’s technology and capabilities – from the recent demonstration of its 40NM PSR offering, to successful 5NM drone trials with the CAA – Aveillant is keen to bring new talent into the group.
Prof. Baker is currently the Research Scholar in Integrated Sensor Systems at Ohio State University. Previously, he was the Dean and Director of the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the Australian National University. He is a double recipient of the IEE Mountbatten premium and is a visiting professor at Strathclyde University.
