Gerhard Krieger received the Dipl.-Ing. (M.S.) and the Dr.-Ing. (Ph.D.) degrees in electrical and communication engineering from the Technical University of Munich, Germany, in 1992 and 1999, respectively. From 1992 to 1999, he was a Scientist at the Ludwig-Maximilians University, Munich, where he worked in several interdisciplinary research projects related to the modelling of biological and technical vision systems by applying higher-order statistics and nonlinear systems theory. In 1999, he joined the Microwave and Radar Institute (HR) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. From 1999 to 2001, he developed signal processing algorithms for an innovative forward-looking radar (SIREV). Since 2001, he has been the Head of the New SAR Missions Group at DLR (HR). His technical interests include the development and analysis of innovative SAR system concepts based on bi- and multistatic satellite formations, digital beamforming, SAR interferometry, and tomography, as well as advanced signal and image processing techniques.
