The IEEE Kingston Communications and Computer Chapter is proud to sponsor the following IEEE lecture:
A Perspective on the Development of Defence Electronic Systems
Date: Thursday, September 8th, 2016.
Venue: S4214 (Sawyer Building), Royal Military College of Canada
Speaker: Robert Inkol (previously with Defence Research and Development Canada – DRDC)
Abstract: In the development of defence electronic systems, there are inevitably numerous challenges and pitfalls that must be identified and addressed if useful results are to be realized. This presentation draws on the author’s previous experiences with Defence R&D Canada to explore real world issues in the development of defence electronic systems. While this presentation is of particular interest to engineers who are or will be involved in the development, procurement and life cycle management of defence electronic systems, it will also be of interest to those having a broader interest in system engineering.
Speaker Bio: Robert Inkol (M’73 – SM’86) received the B.Sc. and M.A.Sc. degrees in Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 1976 and 1978, respectively. From 1978 to 2012, he was a Defence Scientist with Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) where he was responsible for the technical leadership of various electronic warfare related projects and research programs. He was responsible for numerous contributions to the application of very large scale integrated circuit technology and digital signal processing techniques to electronic warfare systems. In addition to having produced numerous publications, Mr. Inkol holds four patents. He is a Senior Member of IEEE, and has served as a reviewer for various publications and as a Technical Program Committee member for several IEEE conferences. In 2012, he received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal. Since 2014, he has carried out several studies and investigations on EW related topics for MDA Corporation.
