Dr. Peter J. Collins is a Professor of Electrical Engineering with the Air Force Institute of Technology, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH.  Dr. Collins’ research interests are in the areas of low observables, electromagnetic materials design, and remote sensing along with the underlying foundational disciplines of electromagnetic theory, computational electromagnetics, and signature metrology.

During his time at AFIT, Dr. Collins has advised over 40 graduate students and served on as many master and doctoral committees.  Prior to AFIT, Dr. Collins completed a 20 year active duty career in the United States Air Force serving in a variety of assignments primarily in the technology development, test, and acquisition areas.  His technical leadership impacted many organizations from the laboratories to the pentagon where he last served as Chief Scientist, Office of Research.  Of particular note was his tenure as director of the National RCS Test Facility (a.k.a. “RATSCAT”) during which he shepherded a significant improvement in RCS metrology.  Dr Collins is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), Senior Member and 2015 President of the Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA), member of the Eta Kappa Nu and Tau Beta Pi honor societies, and is author or co-author of over 90 technical papers, 2 book chapters, and 1 US Patent.
