Bruce McGuffin is a Staff Member at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, in the Advanced Sensor Techniques group.
From 1986 to 1988 he worked for the System Engineering Division of Stanford Telecommunications in Reston, Virginia, designing satellite systems used to support NASA's space programs, including the follow-on Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS), and the Second TDRSS Ground Terminal (STGT).
In 1988 he went to work for MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, Massachusetts, in the Satellite Technology Group, where he was involved in defining the Milstar Medium Data Rate (MDR) air interface.
In 1995 he moved to the group currently called the Advanced Sensor Techniques Group, where he works on performance modeling, signal processing, and system design for wireless and mobile communications. Topics of particular interest are LPI/LPD communications, modeling the effects of jamming and unintentional radio interference, and interference mitigation. Applications he has worked on include tactical military communications, cellular telephones, commercial mobile satellite communications, robust radio navigation, aeronautical radio, and small-sensor networks.
In 1998-1999 he was chairman of the Boston Chapter of the IEEE Communications Society.
In 1999-2000 he was a Visiting Fellow at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
