Dev Palmer · · · 9 MG Nadeau Bio Major General Roger A. Nadeau, Commanding General, U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command. Major General Nadeau, a native of Rhode Island, was commissioned in 1974 following graduation from the University of Rhode Island as a Distinguished Military Graduate of the Reserve Officers Training Corps. In 1987 he earned a Masters Degree in Business Administration from the Florida Institute of Technology and in 1996 a Masters Degree in National Resource Strategy from the National Defense University in Washington, DC. His military education includes the Armor Officer Basic Course, Armor Officer Advanced Course, US Army Ranger School, Command and General Staff College and the Industrial College of the Armed Forces. Prior to assuming duties as the DCG for SOSI, Major General Nadeau served as the Program Executive Officer for Ground Combat Systems. He was responsible for developing, acquiring, fielding and sustaining Army Ground Combat Systems. Some of the systems included: the Abrams tank systems, the Bradley Fighting Vehicle systems, the Stryker Brigade Combat Team vehicles, Future Combat Systems, Paladin, Joint Lightweight Howitzer and Robotic Systems. He has worked previously as the PEO in CS & CSS with 220 different programs. He has also served as the Deputy for Systems Acquisition (DSA), Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM). As the DSA, Major General Nadeau was responsible for the development, fielding, sustainment, and divestiture of selected Army aviation and missile systems. Other previous jobs include tours as the Assistant Deputy for Systems Management and Horizontal Technology Integration in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology; the Chief of Staff to the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics and Technology)/Army Acquisition Executive; the Project Manager for Tank Automotive Weapons Systems, United States Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command, Warren, Michigan; Product Manager for the Breacher Program, Program Executive Office, Armored Systems Modernization in Warren, Michigan; and Abrams tank systems coordinator/liaison officer, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Research, Development and Acquisition), Washington, DC. Major General Nadeau's troop time includes service as Battalion Executive Officer, 1st Battalion, 37th Armor, 1st Armor Division, United States Army Europe and Seventh Army, Germany and Southwest Asia during Desert Storm. Major General Nadeau's awards and decorations include the Legion of Merit (4 Oak Leaf Clusters); Bronze Star; Meritorious Service Medal (3 Oak Leaf Clusters); Army Commendation Medal; Parachutist Badge; Air Assault Badge; Ranger Tab; and Army Staff Identification Badge.
Dev Palmer · · · 10 Nader Engheta (S’80–M’82–SM’89–F’96) received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran, in 1978, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Pasadena, in 1979 and 1982, respectively, both in electrical engineering. From June 1982 to June 1983, he was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow with Caltech. From June 1983 to June 1987, he was a Senior Research Scientist with the Dikewood Division, Kaman Sciences Corporation, Santa Monica, CA. In July 1987, he joined the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania, where he is currently a Professor of electrical and systems engineering. He is also a member of the David Mahoney Institute of Neurological Sciences, University of Pennsylvania, and a member of the Bioengineering Graduate Group, University of Pennsylvania. He was the Graduate Group Chair of electrical engineering from July 1993 to June His research interests and activities are in the areas of fields and waves phenomena, metamaterials and complex media, bio-inspired/biomimetic polarization imaging and polarization vision, plasmonic optics, nano-electromagnetics and optics, small antennas for wireless applications, bio-inspired hyperspectral sensing, biologically based visualization and physics of sensing and display of polarization information, through-wall microwave imaging, electromagnetics/electrophysics of brain cortical potentials [e.g., electroencephalography (EEG)], fractional operators, and fractional paradigm in electrodynamics. He was an Associate Editor for Radio Science (1991–1996) and was on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Electromagnetic Waves and Applications. Dr. Engheta is a Guggenheim Fellow and a Fellow of the Optical Society of America. He is a member of the American Physical Society (APS), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Sigma Xi, Commissions B and D of the U.S. National Committee (USNC) of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), and a member of the Electromagnetics Academy. He is an associate editor of the IEEE Antennas And Wireless Propagation Letters (2002– present), and was an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions On Antennas And Propagation (1996–2001). He served as an IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Distinguished Lecturer (1997–1999). He was the chair (1989–91) and vice-chair (1988–89) of the joint chapter of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (IEEE AP-S) / Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (IEEE MTT-S) in the Philadelphia Section. He is an elected member of the Administrative Committee (AdCom) of the IEEE AP-S since January He has guest edited/co-edited several special issues, namely, the special issue on “Wave Interaction with Chiral and Complex Media” of the Journal of Electromagnetic Waves and Applications (1992), the partial special issue on “Antennas and Microwaves of the Journal of the Franklin Institute (from the 13th Annual Benjamin Franklin Symposium) (1995), the special issue “Electrodynamics in Complex Environments” of the Wave Motion (with L. B. Felsen) (2001), and the special issue on “Metamaterials” of the IEEE Transactions On Antennas And Propagation (with R. W. Ziolkowski) (2003). He was a recipient of the IEEE Third Millennium Medal. He was the recipient of numerous awards and distinctions for his scholarly research contributions and teaching activities including the UPS Foundation Distinguished Educator term Chair (July 1999-June 2000), the Fulbright Naples Chair Award for Naples, Italy (1998), a National Science Foundation (NSF) Presidential Young Investigator (PYI) Award (1989), the S. Reid Warren, Jr. Award for distinguished teaching from the School of Engineering and Applied Science, University of Pennsylvania (1993 and 2002), the Christian F. and Mary R. Lindback Foundation Award (1994), and the W. M. Keck Foundation’s Engineering Teaching Excellence Award (1995). Nader Engheta Bio
