Robert Morrow received a Bachelor of Science degree from the United States Air Force Academy, a Master of Science degree from Stanford University, and a Ph.D. degree from Purdue University, all in electrical engineering. Bob taught undergraduate engineering and was the Director of Research at the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he also piloted the aircraft used by the Wings of Blue parachute team. A few years earlier he jumped out of a perfectly good airplane several times so the parachute team wouldn't accuse him of being chicken. As Deputy Head of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the Air Force Institute of Technology, he flew a desk and taught graduate-level engineering courses. At various times during his Air Force career, Bob instructed in turbojet, turboprop, and reciprocating military aircraft. Dr. Morrow is a senior member of the Institute ofElectrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), has published over two dozen technical articles, holds a U.S. patent, and is an Advanced Class Amateur Radio operator. He authored the book Bluetooth Operation and Use, published by McGraw-Hill in 2002. Bob presently serves as a consultant and short course instructor in short-range wireless networks.
