Dr. Noneaker has industrial experience in both hardware and software design for communication systems. From 1979 to 1982 he was with Sperry-Univac, Salt Lake City, Utah, and from 1984 to 1988 he was with the Motorola Government Electronics Group, Scottsdale, Arizona. He was a Research Assistant in the Coordinated Science Laboratory, University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois from 1988 to 1993. Since August 1993 he has been with the Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clemson University, Clemson, SC, where he holds the position of Professor and served as Department Chair from 2014 to spring 2020. He is currently the associate dean for research in Clemson University’s College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences.

Professor Noneaker is engaged in research on wireless communication for both military and commercial applications with emphases on spread-spectrum communications, error-control coding for fading channels, and protocols for mobile radio networks. He has published numerous papers on the design and analysis of multiple-access systems for both cellular communication and ad hoc packet radio networks. He contributes to the engineering profession through service as a conference technical-program chair and conference-board activities.
