on looking up an inventor of one of his patents for the waveguide i came across this.... he has a dr working for him...
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers meeting.
by Fred Nadeau, Section Chair
The April Section meeting was attended by twenty members. We would like to increase meeting attendance
throughout the remainder of the year.
This month's presentation on Police Radar and Laser Detectors was given by Dr. Marwan Nusair, a consultant to
Michael Valentine, developer of the first commercial radar detector. Dr. Nusair made a sterling presentation of the
past, present and future technology of police radar and laser detectors. He stressed that the less expensive
commercial detectors have reduced hardware and software technology that lead to frequent and annoying false
alarms. Advance detectors, Dr. Nusair stated, provide not only the newly developed police radar capabilities but
also provide users with directional information (forward, rear, left or right). Future detectors are already being
developed by detector manufacturers to incorporate counters to recent innovations in police radars and will probably
be in the market place at the same or nearly the same time as the police capabilities, Dr. Nusair stated. I wish to
sincerely thank Dr. Nusair for his presentation to the section and chapter members.
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION: The presentation for this month's meeting will cover the latest in Police Radar and Laser Detectors including limitations and uses of laser/radar detectors in their everyday life. The presentation will be sufficiently technical to interest electrical engineers of various backgrounds, but also of interest to non-technical people. The presenter will be Dr. Marwan Nusair. Dr. Nusair is a member of both IEEE and Sigma Xi. He completed his Post-doctoral fellow (2 years) and was an Instructor for 2 years in the University of Toronto Physics Department. He has 5 publications in refereed Physics journals and 7 patents (all related to microwave design). He started own business in 1982 and has been in RF-related fields since then. He was a visiting Professor of Physics, University of Cincinnati, 1987-1988.
He currently in involved in design and development of antennas, feedhorns, and microwave receiver circuitry, and other design work in RF projects varying from military radio antennas to 900MHz cellular system design for low power data systems and is currently part owner of a sales rep firm covering Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and W. Pennsylvania. He also is now working as a design engineer for a local radar detector manufacturer on a consulting basis.
its great to know that the best engineers are working at valentine research....
lets hope he can design a stealth v1 antenna!
this info is very facinating...
