The tribute below was written by Jim Jenkins, founder and president of ATIcourses.
Dr. Richard (Dick)Wiley passed away February 2, 2015 in Singapore. He was in Singapore doing what he was passionate about – teaching a class on electronic warfare.

He was a friend and colleague. He will be sorely missed by all.

Before RAS, he had been employed by Syracuse Research Corporation and Microwave Systems, Incorporated. Dr. Wiley also was a First Lieutenant with the US Army Security Agency Special Projects Unit. During his distinguished career, he contributed to a number of national intelligence and electronic warfare efforts, and he was the author of five books and more than twenty papers on the subject. He was active in electronic warfare research, most recently in LPI detection and enhanced de-interleaving techniques. He was elected an IEEE Fellow “for contributions to radar signal interception and analysis.” Dr. Wiley had over 40 years of experience in ELINT/EW, specializing in signal analysis and receivers. Dr. Wiley was active with the Association of Old Crows and frequently presented training courses to varied audiences. He held a BS/MSEE degree from Carnegie-Mellon University and a Ph.D. from Syracuse University.
