Signal Processing & Communications Society


Chapter Chair: Hector A. Martinez,Concurrent Technologies Corporation, Largo FL
Hector has a BSEE and MSEE degree from FSU-FAMU College of Engineering, Tallahassee, FL. His bachelor's
emphasis was in Communications Systems. His master's research emphasis was in Small Signal Modeling of
Microwave Field Effect Transistors using Artificial Neural Networks. This research resulted in a thesis and a published
paper in the October 2007 IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement on Small Signal Modeling of
MESFETs. From January 2003 to July 2005, he was with RCC Consultants as an intern in which he was involved
with RF and Microwave Systems for Public Safety applications. From August 2005 to December 2008, he was part of
the ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) group of HNTB Corporation. With HNTB he was involved in the planning,
designing, integrating and testing of Fiber Optic and Wireless
Communication Systems for ITS applications. In December of 2008 he joined Concurrent Technologies Corporation
to work in the design, modeling, testing and implementation of a High Speed Data Communications System Test Bed
for the local Public Safety and ITS agencies. This system is meant to provide interoperability and information sharing
in case of emergencies between these agencies. His goal as a consultant and IEEE member is to continue to learn
about new technologies available and provide the best solutions to our everyday problems, maintain our quality of
life, protect the public and our nation's safety and improve our international competitiveness.
