Dušan Kocur was born in Kosice, Slovakia, in 1974. He received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree in Radioelectronics from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Košice, in 1985 and 1990, respectively. Nowadays, he is the full professor at the Department of Electronics and Multimedia Communications of his Alma Mater. His main research interests include ultra-wideband (UWB) radar systems, real-time operating UWB localization systems, UWB sensor network, UWB radar with synthetic aperture and UWB impedance spectroscopy. He has dealt also with UWB radar signal processing focused on short-range localization and tracking of moving and static persons and on contactless monitoring of breathing frequency and heart rate of human beings. He has published more than 220 scientific papers in books, journals and conference proceedings.

Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology is a radio technology that uses electromagnetic waves with a very low power spectral density occupying a bandwidth of more than 25% of a centre frequency, or more than 0.5GHz, for short-range remote sensing, high-bandwidth communications or object positioning. The detailed analyses of state-of-the-art UWB technology has shown that this technology is very interesting and promising with a great application potential. Following these facts, our book attempts to present current and emerging trends in research and development of UWB systems. The book is focused on basic components of UWB systems such as antennas, filters, photonic approach for signal processing methods, as well as on some applications of UWB systems (human target analysis, cancer detection).
