Vincent Fusco is an academic engineer who is active in the antennas field. He is distinguished for his work in the area of active antennas, particularly those using phase-conjugating techniques for real-time beamforming. He is responsible for creating frameworks for their analysis, synthesis, their physical implementation and measurement in the microwave through sub-millimetre wave regimes. His publications and patents have stimulated academic and industrial work on the topic worldwide.
He has pioneered this subject over several decades and created engineered self-tracking antenna arrays that are capable of real life application in satellite and in complex terrestrial wireless communications scenarios.
Vincent received the IET Mountbatten Medal in 2012 and the Royal Irish Academy Gold Medal for Engineering Sciences in 2019. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Irish Academy of Engineering, the IEEE, IET and is a Member of the Royal Irish Academy.
