Biography
Brian D. Jeffs received B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from Brigham Young University in 1978 and 1982 respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Southern California in 1989, also in electrical engineering. Since 1990 he has been in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Brigham Young University and is currently a professor. He lectures in the areas of digital signal processing, digital image processing, and circuits.
Research interests include digital signal processing for radio astronomy, multiple antenna wireless communications, and digital image restoration and reconstruction. He directs the radio astronomy research group at BYU which is actively developing experimental astronomical instrumentation and signal processing algorithms. This group has recently completed a small array of radio telescope dish antennas located on the roof of the Clyde engineering building. This array can form synthesis images of deep space microwave radio sources and is being used to develop and study algorithms to mitigate man made interference while observing space objects.
Dr. Jeffs has recently completed a yearlong sabbatical at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, where he collaborated with ASTRON in developing and analyzing techniques for self calibration of the LOFAR low frequency radio astronomy array.
Previous employment includes Hughes Aircraft Company where he served as a sonar signal processing systems engineer in the antisubmarine warfare group. Current research interests include high data rate digital multiple antenna wireless communications systems, adaptive interference mitigation algorithms for radio astronomy, and blind image restoration.
Dr. Jeffs was a Vice General Chair for IEEE ICASSP2001, held in Salt Lake City Utah. He was a member of the executive organizing committee for the 1998 IEEE DSP Workshop, and served several years as chair of the Utah Chapter of the IEEE Communications and Signal Processing Societies.

Curriculum Innovations
Dr. Jeffs teaches a wide variety of graduate and undergraduate courses in the areas of signals and systems, and electronic circuits. At the graduate level his regular lectures include Digital Image Processing (ECEn 678), Advanced Digital Signal Processing (ECEn 777), and Stochastic Processes (ECEn 670). Undergraduate offerings include Introduction to Digital Signal Processing (ECEn 487), Realtime DSP laboratory (ECEn 487 Lab), Probability theory (ECEn 370), Software Radio Senior Project (ECEn 490), Signals and Systems (ECEn 380), Introduction to Circuits (ECEn 212), and Electronic Circuits and Devices (ECEn 313).
The following list itemizes some of the curriculum innovations and new courses developed and introduced by Dr. Jeffs.
 ECEn 487, DiscreteTime Signal Processing lecture and RealTime Digital Signal Processing Laboratory. The lecture course was revised and moved to the undergraduate level by Dr. Jeffs. This permitted much more advanced offerings at the graduate level. The associated realtime DSP lab, developed by Dr. Jeffs, uses the TMS320C6701 floating point signal processor evaluation module. Students develop code for filters, a spectrum analyzer, acoustic direction finder, and adaptive noise canceller.
 ECEn 490, Software Radio Senior Project. In this lab course, teams of upper division students (four per team) design a complete operational DSPbased digital communications receiver in a competitive environment. The 924 MHz QPSK receiver is implemented in realtime DSP code on a Texas Instruments TMS320C6701 floating point evaluation board. Students must design and build the antenna, radio frequency frontend circuits, and develop code for the digital demodulation. Teams compete based on lowest transmit power required for a specified bit error rate at a fixed distance. Winning teams receive a significant cash award from corporate sponsors.
 ECEn 212 lab, Circuits Laboratory. This course is based on a semesterlong major project where the students design and build a complete stereo audio amplifier and speaker system, and in the process apply all of the major circuits principles taught in class.
 ECEn 380 Signals and systems. Dr. Jeffs led the effort in 1991 to have this course on linear systems and transforms expanded and moved from the graduate level to be taught at the Junior level. The current course syllabus was developed and first taught by Dr. Jeffs.
 ECEn 316, Signals and Systems Laboratory. This companion to ECEn 380 included opamp and DSPbased experiments to study principles of both analog and digital linear systems.
 ECEn 687, Advanced Digital Signal Processing. Includes topics of statistically optimal signal processing, array processing, adaptive filtering, parametric spectral analysis, etc.
 ECEn 619, Advanced Digital Image Processing. Includes in depth study of iterative and regularized methods for image restoration and medical image reconstruction. The illposed inverse problem is analyzed.

The major area of focus for Dr. Jeffs' research includes the related disciplines of digital signal processing, sensor array processing, and digital image restoration. The following list describes research topics Dr. Jeffs has been involved with, with the most recent activities listed first.
 Phased array feeds for radio telescopes dishes: A new trend in developing the next generation of radio telescopes is to use a compact array of antennas at the focal plane of a large dish reflector. Compared to traditional single waveguide feeds, these phased array feeds (PAFs) can increase the instrument field of view and sky survey speed. Unique challenges associated with PAF observations, including extremely low signal levels, longterm system gain stability requirements, spatially correlated noise due to mutual coupling, and tight beamshape tolerances, require the development of new array signal processing techniques for this application. We are studying calibration and beamforming strategies for PAFs including interference mitigation with power spectral density (PSD) estimation bias correction. We have extended key efficiency metrics for singlefeed instruments to the array case and are using these to verify performance of the algorithms. We are collaborating with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) validate these techniques using an experimental PAF prototype on the Green Bank 20Meter Telescope.
 Self calibration for low frequency radio astronomical arrays: There is growing interest in radio astronomical observations in the low frequency range where it may be possible to detect the most distant, and highly redshifted celestial objects yet observed. Instruments must detect signals at unusually low frequencies (10350 MHz) and over large apertures (100 km). Major projects include the Dutch Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT), the Long Wavelength Array (LWA), and lowfrequency retrofits to the Very Large Array (VLA) in New Mexico, and the Murchison Wide Field Array in Australia. Our research addresses the most significant outstanding calibration challenge for large lowfrequency arrays, i.e. correction for ionospheric phase distortion. At these frequencies the Earth's ionosphere acts as a random refractive sheet which over the large aperture induces sourcedirectiondependent gain and phase errors that must be estimated and calibrated out. Due to direction dependence, existing self calibration techniques cannot be applied. We have studied the direction dependent calibration problem in detail for the LOFAR and VLA arrays from a parameter estimation theoretic perspective. Self calibration algorithms have been proposed, and CramerRao lower bounds (CRB) have been developed to guide further algorithm development and array geometry design.
 Adaptive interference mitigation for radio astronomy: Radio astronomical observation is increasingly plagued by manmade interference from ground based broadcast, mobile wireless communications, and satellite downlink sources. We have studied several mitigation approaches. Realtime signal processing tools have been developed to cancel spacebased interference using adaptive filtering techniques. This has been successfully demonstrated at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) 100m Green Bank Telescope (GBT). New algorithms have been developed and analyzed for algebraically projecting out interference seen in imaging arrays like the Very Large Array in New Mexico. Kalman tracking techniques have been adapted to improve data time blanking for removing aviation radar interference seen at the GBT. Adaptive beamforming cancellation has been employed with a phased array feed on the Green Bank 20 meter Telescope dish to remove mobile interference. Estimation bias caused by array interference cancellation has been studied and correction algorithms proposed.
 Multiple antenna arrays for wireless communication: Recently developed algorithms for spacetime coded Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MIMO) wireless systems have been shown to be theoretically capable of increasing channel capacity by an order of magnitude or more. This gain is achieved using multiple antennas at both the transmit and receive ends of a wireless link to exploit the presence of multipath scattering, without increasing radio frequency bandwidth requirements. We have studied both the indoor and outdoor MIMO channel environments with an experimental channel sounding platform. Based on these observations, statistical models to enable realistic channel capacity calculations were proposed.
 Multiframe blind restoration of adaptive optics telescope images: This research is directed at high resolution restoration of multiframe adaptive optics (AO) telescopic images. AO systems remove in real time much of the atmosphericturbulenceinduced blur, but a residual timevarying component remains. While observing a single object, the sequence of AO image frames has a different unknown residual blur pointspread function per frame. This constitutes a multiframe, blind image restoration problem. Algorithms based on Bayesian restoration using Markov random field models for the unknown object and psf's have been developed and shown to provide high quality restorations.
 Deblurring of point source images: We have shown that for pointlike images (star fields, biomagnetic imaging, optical target tracking, etc.), restoration and reconstruction methods which exploit the known pointlike structure far outperform conventional methods. Two techniques to identify and localize the image point sources corresponding to individual stars have been studied: an optimization theoretic approach based on a sparseness metric, and an image subspace decomposition method.
