Dr Jaco de Witt obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Pretoria, in 2004.
In 2011, he obtained his PhD degree in Electronic Engineering, from Stellenbosch University. His PhD thesis focussed on strategies to compensate for the non-idealities of analogue quadrature-mixing radio front-ends, using digital signal processing techniques.
In 2007, Dr De Witt joined the Radar and Electronic Warfare group at the CSIR in Pretoria, where he is currently employed as a senior radar systems engineer. At the CSIR, he has been involved in many radar-related activities, gaining technical experience in both the digital signal processing side, as well as hardware front-end design aspects related to high performance radar systems. As systems engineer, he has been involved in the development of multiple radar demonstrators and facilities, ranging from high-resolution radar systems, to compact airborne radar systems.
