Abstract:


Timothy T. Lee

Bio: Timothy T. Lee (SM’03) is very active in the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society where he is serving on the Administrative Committee as chair of the Electronic Information Committee, Society Webmaster and member of the Long-Range Planning Committee. He has also served on the Technical Program Committee for the International Microwave Symposium for the last six years. He was Local Arrangement Chair for the IMS 2005 Conference in Long Beach, CA and has served as the Coastal LA Section MTT- 17 Chapter Chair during 2002 through 2004. For the last five years, as member of the steering committees, he has pioneered the development of an electronic Program Guides for PDAs and smartphones for the IMS conference. In 2005, he was awarded the Walter Cox Award for service contribution to the MTT-S Society. Currently he is volunteering as Local Arrangement Chair for the 2007 Radio and Wireless Symposium. Since 2002, he has been Senior Scientist in the RF and Digital Electronics Product Group at Boeing Space & Intelligence Systems in El Segundo, CA, responsible for the insertion of advanced RF microelectronics and photonic devices into communications and sensor applications. He is an internationally recognized technologist in the development of microwave/millimeter-wave GaAs and InP ICs and MMIC-based modules. He has over 26 years of experience and has held technical/managerial positions at Hughes Space and Communications, MA-COM,/Microwave Signal, Inc., and COMSAT Laboratories, where he performed MMIC and microwave active module R&D/product development. While at COMSAT, he performed payload hardware verification for INTELSAT VI satellites, performed in-orbit test (IOT) of various INTELSAT V-A spacecrafts and developed PHEMT MMICs for V-band and W-band applications. At MA-COM, he led the development of MMIC chipsets for the commercial LMDS and millimeter-wave digital radio applications. At Boeing, he formed a fabless MMIC design and test center which successfully developed over 30 space qualified MMICs for commercial and government satellite payloads.

Dr. Baruch Levush

Baruch Levush, Ph.D., SES

Bio: Dr. Baruch Levush received his M.Sc (Physics) from Latvian University in Riga in 1972. His Ph.D. (Physics) he received from Tel-Aviv University in 1981 followed by a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Laboratory for Plasma and Fusion Energy Studies at the University of Maryland (UMD). In 1985 Dr. Levush joined the Institute for Plasma Research at the UMD, where his research focused on the physics of coherent radiation sources and the design of high-power microwave and millimeter wave sources such as gyrotrons, relativistic backward-wave oscillators and free electron lasers. He joined the Electronics Science and Technology Division (ESTD) at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) as the Head of the Theory and Design Section of the Vacuum Electronics Branch in 1995 and in 2003 he became the Head of the Vacuum Electronics Branch. In 2012 Dr. Levush entered the Senior Executive Service (SES) as the Superintendent of the ESTD. ESTD’s mission is to perform a multi-disciplinary, broadly based fundamental research program that includes but not limited to research activities on electronic materials, devices and components that ensure Navy’s ownership of the electromagnetic spectrum for communications, sensors, electronic warfare and directed energy.

Michael Marcus

Michael MarcusBio: Director of, Marcus Spectrum Solutions LLC, Dr. Michael Marcus is experienced in both wireless technology and the practical aspects of spectrum policy through almost 25 years at the FCC, exchange posting at its Japanese counterpart, and consulting for the European Commission on spectrum issues.
He is an IEEE Fellow and was recognized “for leadership in the development of spectrum management policies”, he is also the recipient of the first IEEE-USA’s Electrotechnology Transfer Award, and the IEEE ComSoc Award for Public Service in the Field of Telecommunications “For pioneering spectrum policy initiatives that created modern unlicensed spectrum bands for applications that have changed our world.”

Michael’s accomplishments included proposing and then implementing the FCC unlicensed spread spectrum rules in the early 1980s that form the basis for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, most of the cordless phones sold in the US, and a variety of other niche products. Similarly, he pioneered the rules for civil use of spectrum above 60 GHz. Michael’s main focus is to help solve spectrum policy problems associated with the introduction of new technologies.
