University of SalentoItaly

Danilo Orlando was born in Gagliano del Capo, Italy, on August 9, 1978. He received the Dr. Eng. Degree (with honors) in computer engineering and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering, both from the University of Salento (formerly University of Lecce), Italy, in 2004 and 2008, respectively. From July 2007 to July 2010, he has worked with the University of Cassino (Italy), engaged in a research project on algorithms for track-before-detect of multiple targets in uncertain scenarios. His main research interests are in the field of statistical signal processing and image processing with more emphasis on adaptive detection and tracking of multiple targets in multisensor scenarios. He has held visiting positions with the department of Avionics and Systems of ENSICA (now Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace, ISAE), Toulouse (France) in February-March 2007, where he has worked with Prof. O. Besson on adaptive radar detection in presence of mismatched signals, and with the NATO Undersea Research Centre (NURC), La Spezia (Italy) in September-November 2009, where he collaborated with Dr. F. Ehlers on track-before-detect strategies for multistatic sonars. Since 2010, he has been collaborating with Dr. C. Distante of National Institute of Optics (INO-CNR) in developing innovative strategies for motion detection and visual tracking.
