NJIT professor Alexander Haimovich named IEEE Fellow

A pioneer in the field of signal processing in adaptive arrays and multiple sensor radar, NJIT Professor Alexander Haimovich has been named an IEEE Fellow. His work has contributed greatly to the advancement and application of electrical engineering and technology.

Unlike conventional radar in which targets are probed with a single waveform, in multiple sensor radar, targets are probed with multiple waveforms simultaneously. As a result, targets can be localized with significant higher accuracy than with conventional radar. His most recent work focuses on new signal processing approaches that may lead to significant reductions in the cost of multi-sensor radar. Five doctoral students work with him.

"We have long applauded Dr. Haimovich's important work at NJIT. But we are especially thrilled when others from outside the university say the same thing. This is a very important honor. Congratulations, Alex," said the NJIT Newark College of Engineering (NCE) Acting Dean Basil Baltzis."

Haimovich's most recent work--all co-authored presentations--have or yet will appear in the following conference proceedings: "Compressive Sensing with Unknown Parameters," to yet appear in Proceedings of the Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems and Computers, Monterey, CA, (Nov. 4-7, 2012); "Performance Bound for Time Delay and Amplitude Estimation from Low Rate Samples of Pulse Trains," in Proceedings of the 20th European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 2012), pp. 455-459, Aug. of 2012; "Spatial Compressive Sensing in MIMO Radar with Random Arrays," in Proc. of Information Sciences and Systems (CISS), 2012 46th Annual Conference on (CISS), pp. 1-6, 21-23 March of 2012.

The Ying Wu Endowed Chair in Wireless Telecommunications at NJIT, Haimovich teaches in the NCE Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research interests focus on advanced radar, sensing, and communication systems including multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar, geolocation, compressed sensing for target localization, and signal design. Over the years, Haimovich's research has been supported by the US Air Force, National Science Foundation, the U.S. Army and industry. His work has been published in over 200 journal and conference publications.

In 2003-2005, Haimovich served as the director of the New Jersey Center for Wireless Telecommunications, a state-funded consortium. Members included NJIT, Princeton University, Rutgers University and Stevens Institute of Technology.

In 2003, Haimovich served as chair of the Globecom Communication Theory Symposium. He was for many years an associate editor for the IEEE Communications Letters and more recently was named a guest editor for the EURASIP Journal of Applied Signal Processing Special Issue on Turbo Coding.

Haimovich received his doctorate in systems from the University of Pennsylvania, his master's degree in electrical engineering from Drexel University and his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the Technion, Israel.
