About this book

This book provides a breadth of innovative and impactful research in the field of telecommunications led by women investigators. Topics covered include satellite communications, cognitive radars, remote sensing sensor networks, quantum Internet, and cyberspace. These topics touch on many of the challenges facing the world today and these solutions by women researchers are valuable for their technical excellence and their non-traditional perspective. As an important part of the Women in Engineering and Science book series, the work highlights the contribution of women leaders in telecommunications, inspiring women and men, girls and boys to enter and apply themselves to secure our future in.

Maria Sabrina Greco is Full Professor with the Dept. of Information Engineering of the University of Pisa. She’s IEEE fellow since Jan. 2011 and she was co-recipient of the 2001 and 2012 IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society’s Barry Carlton Awards for Best Paper and recipient of the 2008 Fred Nathanson Young Engineer of the Year award for contributions to signal processing, estimation, and detection theory.. She has been general-chair, technical program chair and organizing committee member of many international conferences over the last 10 years. She has been lead guest editor of the special issue on “Advanced Signal Processing for Radar Applications” of the IEEE Journal on Special Topics of Signal Processing, December 2015, guest co-editor of the special issue of the Journal of the IEEE Signal Processing Society on Special Topics in Signal Processing on “Adaptive Waveform Design for Agile Sensing and Communication,” published in June 2007 and lead guest editor of the special issue of International Journal of Navigation and Observation on” Modelling and Processing of Radar Signals for Earth Observation published in August 2008. She has beenEditor-in-Chief of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Magazine, Senior Editorial board member of IEEE Journal on Selected Topics of Signal Processing (J-STSP) and is Editor-in-Chief of the Springer Journal of Advances in Signal Processing (JASP). She’s also a member of the IEEE SP Board of Governors and she’s President Elect of IEEE AESS. Her general interests are in the areas of statistical signal processing, estimation and detection theory. In particular, her research interests include clutter models, coherent and incoherent detection in non-Gaussian clutter, CFAR techniques, radar waveform diversity and bistatic/mustistatic active and passive radars, cognitive radars. She co-authored many book chapters and more than 200 journal and conference papers.
