Moshe Kam (Ph.D.,P.E.) is the Robert Quinn Professor and Department Head of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Drexel University. He also serves as the Technical Coordinator of the US Department of Defense funded project ACIN (Applied Communication and Information Networking) and as Director of the Drexel University's Center for Excellence in Information Assurance Education. Kam served as Principal Investigator on more than 20 large-scale projects funded by the NSF, ONR, NSWC, the US Army, Lockheed Martin, and DARPA. Educated in Tel Aviv (B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering 1977) and Drexel University (M.S. 1985, Ph.D. 1987), Kam is a Fellow of IEEE "for contributions to the theory of decision fusion and distributed detection," (2001) and recipient of an IEEE Third Millennium Medal. He received a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award (1990-1995) and is a Licensed Professional Engineer registered in the State of Pennsylvania. He served IEEE (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) as Vice President for Educational Activities, as Director of Region 2 (Eastern USA), and President and CEO.
He spends part of his work week at the ACIN Center in Camden, NJ where a group of 12 Drexel University faculty and close to 50 students work on projects sponsored by the US Army CERDEC and other DoD units focused on supporting the warfighter. Projects include modeling and simulation of large scale communication networks, design and implementation of mobile ad hoc networks, and design and testing of new military communication subsystems. The ACIN Center is also the development site for Drexel's Secure Wireless Agent-based Testbed, SWAT.
