Misc. Notes

Keats A. Pullen received a BS in Physics from Caltech in 1939 and a Doctorate in Electrical Engineering from the Johns Hopkins University in 1946. He is a Life Fellow of IEEE and holds a P.E. license in Maryland. He was a recipient of the Marconi Memorial Medal of the Veteran Wireless Operators Association in 1982 for his contributions to communications technology. Dr. Pullen's experience extends over the early development of guided missile and satellite electronics. He made many contributions that supported satellite and deep-space electronics, and he has made contributions to the design of reliability into electronics. He is an expert on tactical grounding problems and on many aspects of electronic circuit and system design. He holds six patents and has published nine books ranging from circuit design and network topology to design of communication systems. He has contributed to two McGraw-Hill engineering-series handbooks and to their Encyclopedia of Science and Technology.

Dr. Pullen has been active in AIEE/IRE/IEEE: since the late 1930s in AIEE, since the late 1940s in IRE, and since 1962 in IEEE. He served the Baltimore Section of IEEE (and the Maryland Section of AIEE) in the 1950s and 1960s and was president of the Aberdeen Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications Association.
