Professor Emeritus Anthony J. Weiss

Researcher & Scientist at the Electrical Engineering School, Tel Aviv University


About Me

My main interests are signal processing in general and multi-channel array processing in particular. Some keywords that describe my interests are:

Direction Finding (DF, DOA, AOA)

Localization by time difference of arrival (TDOA, DTOA, TOA)

Localization by Differential Doppler (DD, DFOA, FDOA)

Localization by Received Signal Strength (RSSI)

Localization by Finger Printing.

I received the B.Sc. degree from the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology, in 1973, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1982 and 1985, all in electrical engineering. From 1973 to 1983, I was involved in the research and development of numerous projects in the fields of communications, command and control, and emitter localization. In 1985, I joined the Department of Electrical Engineering-Systems, Tel Aviv University. From 1996 to 1999 I served as the department chairperson and as IEEE Israel Section Chairperson. From 2006 to 2011 I was the chairperson of the EE School at Tel Aviv University. I served as editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications for several years.  I published nearly 200 papers in professional magazines and conferences and I hold 11 U.S. patents. I was a recipient of the IEEE 1983 Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing Society’s Senior Award and the IEEE third millennium medal.
