Professor Ian Proudler FIMA, FIEE is a member of the Advanced Signal Processing Group within the School of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering at Loughborough University. He previously was a Senior Fellow in the Signal Processing Group at QinetiQ Malvern. He is recognised both nationally and internationally for his work on adaptive filtering. This includes the fundamental theory as well as numerical stability and real-time implementation issues. He has been working in this field for more than 25 years and has published some 60 research papers, contributed to three textbooks and holds a patent on an adaptive filtering architecture.
He has been the principal researcher on many MoD research projects. Some of these have addressed basic signal processing needs such as numerical stability and efficient computation. Others have focused on the application of adaptive signal processing algorithms to military systems such as a ‘smart’ antenna algorithm for HF communications, signal separation for ESM purposes, magnetic detection for maritime surveillance, and GPS anti-jam systems. He was awarded the John Benjamin Memorial Prize, in 1992 and 2001, and the IEE J.J. Thomson Medal, in 2002, for his work on signal processing algorithms.
