Dr. Dev Palmer is a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office where he manages a portfolio of research on sub-millimeter-wave and terahertz electronic sources, sensors and control components, vacuum electronics, antennas, and computational modeling of electromagnetics and electronics.
Dr. Palmer came to DARPA from the Army Research Office (ARO) in Research Triangle Park, N.C., where he was a member of the Electronics Division. He joined ARO in 2001 as a program manager for electromagnetics, microwaves, and power, and was responsible for a portfolio of basic research projects aimed toward the next generation of DoD systems for radio communications, sensing, and electronic warfare. He developed and sustained relationships between academic researchers, industry technologists, and Army scientists and engineers that led to significant technology transitions, including multi-year, multi-million-dollar, advanced development programs as well as fielded applications. His success in guiding fundamental basic research for the benefit of the warfighter led to his selection for the Army Research Laboratory Award for Program Management in 2010, the Army Superior Civilian Service Medal in 2011, and the Secretary of Defense Award for Excellence in 2013.
Dr. Palmer is an IEEE Fellow, a registered Professional Engineer, a member of the Association of Old Crows, the Materials Research Society, and Sigma Xi, and a member-at-large of the United States National Committee for The International Union of Radio Science. He holds an Amateur Extra class radio operator’s license and is an inventor on four patents. He has published many articles in refereed journals, conference records, and commercial magazines, authored two books and two book chapters, and delivered numerous conference presentations.
Dr. Palmer received the Bachelor of Arts in Physics, and the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Electrical Engineering from Duke University where he studied electromagnetic theory and microwave circuits.
