Dr. William Barott
Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering
Specialty: Electromagnetics, Radio Frequency Systems, Antenna Design, Avionics, Radio Astronomy
Dr. William C. (Billy) Barott brings his expertise in antennas, phased arrays, and radio frequency systems to the ECSSE Department's avionics core. A graduate of Georgia Tech, he joined the ERAU faculty in 2006. He teaches the electricity & magnetism and radio frequency sequences in the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program, and also supervises electrical engineering senior design projects, including the electrical team of the multi-disciplinary EcoCAR project. He also sometimes teaches the EGR 115 course for the Department of Freshman Engineering, as well as guest lecturing for several sections of freshman courses each year.
His primary research includes weak signal detection and precision high-speed phased-array processing for radio astronomy and radar systems. He works with the SETI Institute (SETI: Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) developing instrumentation for Hat Creek Radio Observatory. Closer to home, he is involved in the Daytona Small Radio Telescope project of the Daytona Section of the IEEE.
