Hirsch is a 30-year veteran of radar cross section, antenna, and material measurements. He oversees the development and operation of BerrieHill Research Division of ARA’s own RF measurement facilities and various on-site RF measurement support contracts.

Previously, Hirsch worked for Mission Research Corporation where he participated in the design, construction, and verification of the Air Force radar signature measurement facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. After acceptance testing, he served as manager of the facility and directed all facets of its operation. This facility is still the premier indoor compact range for the USAF, and maintains leading-edge capabilities not found in any other measurement range of its kind. Hirsch also developed a unique antenna system for law enforcement vehicles for the Department of Justice and participated in numerous RF signature exploitation programs.

Hirsch is an active member of the adjunct faculty at Wright State University, where he teaches RF Measurement Techniques, Linear Systems Theory, and Electromagnetics, and has been tasked with writing the chapter on “Indoor Antenna Measurements” for the McGraw-Hill Antenna Engineering Handbook, 5th Edition, to be published in 2017.

He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and the American Radio Relay League.
