|Bio||Kapil R. Dandekar is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Drexel University and is the Director of the Drexel Wireless Systems Laboratory (DWSL). DWSL has been supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation, Army CERDEC, National Security Agency, Office of Naval Research, and private industry. He has published articles in several journals including IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Transactions on Communications, IEEE|
Transactions on Vehicular Technology, and IEE Electronics Letters. In 1992, he worked at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington D.C.
From 1993-1997, he was at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington D.C., where he developed virtual reality hardware and software systems in the Information Technology Division and the Navy
Center for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence.
|Lab||Drexel Wireless Systems Laboratory (DWSL)|
|Lab Description||The main objective of the Drexel Wireless Systems Laboratory is to bridge the gap between existing research in communications and electrophysics. Towards this end, DWSL seeks to: (i) Demonstrate the feasibility of next generation wireless systems through the design, construction, testing, and characterization of prototype wireless hardware, (ii) Design and develop new techniques for wireless communication using not only novel radio frequency techniques (MIMO, UWB, etc.), but also "non-traditional" communication modalities (ultrasound, optical, etc.) and (iii) Build forum for transfer of interdisciplinary knowledge between Academia and Industry.|
