Conquering Your Electronic Countermeasures and Surveillance Design Challenges

This webcast will provide an overview of the challenges and solutions for Electronic Countermeasure, Protection and Surveillance system applications. Wideband signal capture and analysis using next generation RF devices and high speed converters will be discussed including Size, Weight, Power and performance tradeoffs. Example signal chains including a detailed RF frequency conversion will be used to illustrate the methods and techniques shown.

Gerald Cornwell received his BSEE from New Jersey Institute of Technology in 1967. He has over forty years of experience in this industry addressing all aspects from design and development to production. Prior to joining ADI, he has been at Raytheon working on EW systems, at M/A-COM as Vice President of Engineering of the microwave subsystems group serving the EW, Radar and Missile Markets, Chief Technologist of the Aerospace and Defense division, and at Cobham as Director of Technology in the Business Development group. Mr. Cornwell joined ADI as Senior Business Development Manager for Modules and Subsystems.

Rob Reeder is a senior system application engineer with Analog Devices in the High Speed Converter and RF Applications Group in Greensboro, North Carolina. He has published numerous articles on converter interfaces, converter testing, and analog signal chain design for a variety of applications. Formerly, Rob was an application engineer for the Aerospace and Defense Group for five years, where he focused on a variety of radar, EW, and instrumentation applications. Previously he was part of the high speed converter product line for nine years. His prior experience also includes test development and analog design engineering for the Multichip Products Group at ADI, where he designed analog signal chain modules for space, military, and high reliability applications for five years. Rob received his M.S.E.E. and B.S.E.E. from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois, in 1998 and 1996, respectively. When Rob isn’t writing papers late at night or in the lab hacking up circuits, he enjoys hanging around at the gym, listening to techno music, building furniture out of old pallets, and, most importantly, chilling out with his two boys.
