Francois le Chevalier – Thanks a lot!

Dear friends,

Many thanks and warm gratitude to each of you for this superb day in Delft: with my wife Danièle, we have really been deeply moved, and admirative of the seamless organization, the quality and good humour of the presentations, the variety of persons, from the younger students – to which I owe a lot for so many good questions and lively discussions – to the … less young colleagues (but still younger than me – take care!), friends now!

Thanks to each of you, those who were there, and also to those who couldn’t come: these years shared between TU Delft and Thales are certainly my richest professional experience with human nature – and also the best part of my research! And those mornings in Delft, cycling along the canals – even when the weather was not …exactly Italian! – I will miss them, for sure…

Attached are several pictures selected by my wife – just a glimpse of so many exchanges and laughs! She especially appreciated the blue and yellow colours, Vermeer-style she tells me, of the ambiguity functions presented by Pascal. Also, the lifelines sketched by Nikita provide us with a … millenarist view of research achievements!

We will meet again, here or there – anyway, I need Delft from time to time, and there are conferences: Radar 2019 in Toulon, France! The splendid Delft-blue plate you offered me is on the wall, and my thoughts are with you: good health, open and creative thinking, human understanding and joined efforts – and perseverance!

Sincerely, I wish you the best
François

Invited lecturer

In the second quarter of current teaching year all our lecturers are involved into the course “EE3340TU: Microwave Sensors and Radars for Airport Applications”, which is a part of the Aerospace BSc program minor “Airport of the Future”. Traditionally we also invite world-wide recognized specialists in the field of radars and avionics to give a few lectures. This year our guest is Prof. Felix Yanovsky from the Kiev International University of Civil Aviation, Ukraine. He is currently providing students a set of lectures “Airport Surveillance Systems”.
