Dr. Julio A. Navarro Senior Technical Fellow, Boeing Research & Technology The Boeing Company


R


adio frequency technology is advancing rapidly and Dr. Julio Navarro’s expertise and vision allows Boeing to translate these advances into products that benefit their customers. Dr. Navarro is a leading expert in the Radio frequency (RF) field of phased array antennas and micro-electronics. He has received more than 25 patents, authored 40 papers in peer-reviewed publi- cations, and co-authored the first reference textbook in the field, “Integrated Active Antennas and Spatial Power Combining.” He is a recognized expert in RF sensors, circuits, antennas and integrated electronics. Dr. Navarro introduced innovative phased-array concepts, which have increased functionality while at the same time re- duced costs. His phased-array designs have been integrated onto terrestrial, naval, airborne and space platforms. He applies the latest finite-element and tools to resolve complex electromagnetic problems in a range of transmission media. As a senior technol- ogy fellow, his base includes millimeter-wave oscillator/amplifier design, anechoic chamber measurements, low-observable radia- tors and radar cross-section research. Dr. Navarro has also made contributions through his partici- pation at STEM-based workshops and conferences. He devotes a significant amount of time to educating next generation engi- neers, and he mentors colleagues, new engineers, interns, as well as college and high-school students. He is active in the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), Great Minds in STEM (GMiS), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the Boeing Hispanic Employees Network (BHEN). Navarro inspires students and colleagues through frequent presentations and workshops at conferences for GMiS and SHPE, and Hispanic Engineering, Science and Technology (HESTEC) Week at the University of Texas-Pan American. He also conducts an online workshop, ‘RF circuits and Antenna Design for Commercial Applications,’ for graduate students at the University of Puerto

Focal Darrell W. Warner, a quality director for Boeing Network and Space Systems. “Engineers consistently seek out his advice, and he has captured the imagination of colleagues, college interns and high school students as he mentors these future aerospace leaders. His leadership and compassion are invaluable in helping us build the diverse Technical Fellowship of the future,” Warner said.


Julio Angel Navarro was born in Argentina. His parents immigrated to the United States in 1970 and he and his siblings joined them in 1974. After a few years in New York City, the family moved to Houston, Texas, where the children grew up.
