Adriano Camps was born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1969. In 1993 he joined the Electromagnetics and Photonics Engineering Group, Department of Signal Theory and Communications, UPC, as an Assistant Professor, Associate Professor in 1997, and Full Professor since 2007. At present he is the Scientific Coordinator of the CommSensLab-UPC María de Maeztu Excellence Research Unit, and director-founder of the UPC NanoSat-lab (https://nanosatlab.upc.edu/en). In 1999, he was on sabbatical leave at the Microwave Remote Sensing Laboratory, of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His research interests are focused in microwave remote sensing, with special emphasis in microwave radiometry by aperture synthesis techniques (MIRAS instrument onboard ESA’s SMOS mission), remote sensing using signals of opportunity (GNSS-R), detection and mitigation of RFI, and nanosatellites as a tool to test innovative remote sensors. He has published over 212 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 7 book chapters and the book Emery and Camps, “Introduction to Satellite Remote Sensing. Atmosphere, Ocean, Land and Cryosphere Applications,” Elsevier, 2017, 860 pages), more than 453 conference presentations, holds 12 patents, and has advised 25 Ph. D. Thesis students (+ 10 on-going), and more than 140 final project and M.Eng. Theses. According to Google Scholar/Scopus his h-index is 51 / 39, and his publications have received more than 10657/7139 citations. He has received numerous awards including the European Young Investigator Award in 2004, two ICREA Academia Awards, two Duran-Farell awards for technology transfer, and the 2017 ESA Sentinel Small Satellite Challenge and overall winner of the Copernicus Masters competition for the FSSCat mission project, which is composed of two 6U Cubesats: 3Cat-5/A carrying onboard the FMPL-2, a dual GNSS-R and L-band microwave radiometer, and 3Cat-5/B carrying onboard HyperScout-2, a VNIR/TIR hyperspectral imager enhanced with the PhiSat-1 board, implementing AI techniques to discard images covered by clouds. FSSCat was successfully launched on September 3rd 2020, and it will be the first CubeSat mission contributing to the Copernicus system. He and his Ph D students were key personnel on the writing of the Strategic Plan on New Space for the Catalan government.
