International conference on radar systems
22 - 25 October 2012 | Glasgow, UK
Mr Kinghorn graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1978 and then joined industry to work initially on radar signal processing. He has now amassed over thirty years’ experience in the field of radar, principally airborne radar, and has played a leading role in the technical research and development of a number of key systems and technologies, including the Captor multimode radar for Eurofighter Typhoon and the AMSAR active phased array radar research and development programme for the UK/Fr/Ge MoDs.
Mr Kinghorn has a broad background in radar systems design, with particular interests in phased-array radar, medium PRF airborne radar, radar mode and waveform design, pulse-Doppler signal processing, radar performance prediction, antenna and radome design, and overall avionics system design. He has been responsible for a number of key innovations in radar technology and is the author of several patents. In his present role he has technical responsibility for all research and development work related to radar and RF systems within Selex Galileo.
Mr Kinghorn is a Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of the IET.
