Professor Debashis Adhikari

Ultra-Wideband Systems

MIT Academy of Engineering

Dr Debashis Adhikari obtained his BTech in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering from the Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics at the University of Calcutta, India, and his ME from the Defense Institute of Advanced Technology (DRDO), India, in Aerospace Engineering. He completed his PhD in the area of Wireless Communication (ultra-wideband communication systems) at the DRDO.

He has served the Indian Air Force as a Commissioned Officer for 23 years and has achieved vast experience in the field of surface to air missile (SAM) systems and wireless systems (tropospheric communications and SATCOM). He was actively involved in the indigenous modifications of IAF’s SAM systems. He has also served as an instructor of these systems at IAF training institutes and has delivered guest lectures at various defense public sector units. He is a member of IEEE and IET, and is a Fellow of the IETE. He is also a reviewer of two SCI-indexed international journals in the area of wireless communications.

Debashis took premature separation from the IAF in order to pursue his passion for teaching. He served at the Defense Institute of Advanced Technology for five years and at the Symbiosis Institute of Technology, India, for three years. Presently, he is a Professor and Dean (Faculty & Staff Affairs) at the MIT Academy of Engineering, India, where he has been since 2016. He has offered courses on Wireless Communication, Detection and Estimation Theory, and Random Variables and Stochastic Processes at postgraduate level, and Digital Communications, Antenna and Wave Propagation at undergraduate level. His particualr areas of interest are ultra-wideband systems and MIMO systems of wireless communication.
