 Personal information
First name, Surname:   Matthias Weiß
Title:   Dr.-Ing.
Organisation:   Fraunhofer FHR



Matthias Weiß is research scientist at the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques (FHR). He graduated from the Technical University Braunschweig / Germany in electrical engineering with the focus on high frequency and optics. In 1992 he started to work at the Technical Faculty of Engineering at Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel, Germany, where he received his PhD in electric engineering in 1998. In 2001 he joined Fraunhofer FHR, where he works on digital radar signal processing, digital beamforming, multistatic, and MIMO radar/sensor networks. Dr. Weiß is author and co-author of numerous papers and frequently serves as a reviewer for various international journals and conferences. He was member of the scientific program committees of several international conferences and served as an Associate Editor for a Special Issue on EUSAR 2010 and EUSAR 2012 in IEEE Transaction Geoscience and Remote Sensing.

He is EUSAR Executive and was the Program Chair of the European Conference on Synthetic Aperture in 2010 and 2012. Likewise he organized several NATO symposia, workshops, and Lecture Series <see here>.

He was responsible for the technical organization of the International Workshop on Compressive Sensing applied to Radar (CoSeRa 2012 and CoSeRa 2013).
