He was born in November 1969 in Ankara. He attended Ankara Namık Kemal Primary and Secondary School, and then he graduated from the Industrial Electronics Department at Balgat Technical High School. He graduated from Physics Engineering Department at Hacettepe University in 1993 with the second-best degree and then started to study for his graduate degree in the same department in 1996. His graduate thesis was supported by TÜBİTAK 1001 project with the number TBAG-1378. After working as a Research Assistant here between 1993 and 1999, he completed his short period of military service in Izmir. Between 1999 and 2012, he worked as a Researcher and Senior Researcher at the Materials Institute and Information Technologies Institute at TÜBİTAK Marmara Research Center and BİLGEM, respectively. Here, he took part in many R&D projects as a Researcher and Assistant Project Leader. Among these projects, Subsurface Detection System: Microwave (Imaging) Tomography Sensor, Earthquake Radar, Microwave Absorber Materials, Security Fence Radar, Sahara and Cave Tomography Device (SAMATO), Development and Testing of Radar Absorbing Materials, Camouflage Textiles Project, Surface Wave High-Frequency (HF) Radar Concept Demonstration Project, Subsurface Detection System: GPR and Metal Detector (Dual Sensor) projects. Between 2002 and 2003, for a year,  he was a Visiting Scientist at the ElectroScience Laboratory within the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Ohio State University, USA, and he conducted research and investigations on subsurface sensing, antenna parameters, and RCA measurements. He completed his doctorate in Kocaeli University (KOU) Electronics and Communication Engineering Department in 2006. This thesis was supported by an international (Israil Magal Inc. and Türkiye TUBITAK MRC) project named “Security Fence Radar”. He received his Associate Professorship in Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) area from UAK in 2011 and was appointed as a lecturer in the same department (ECE) at KOU in 2012. He still works as a Professor (obtained 2020) and the Deputy Head of the Department in the same department. In 2014, he established a 3 m Anechoic Chamber as part of a project (Installation of Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Anechoic Chamber - BAP Project), using also local facilities, in which measurements such as antenna parameters, RCS, and SAR can be made in the 900 MHz - 20 GHz range (expandable up to 40 GHz). This anechoic chamber is the first and only anechoic chamber established in a university for this purpose and in this frequency range in the Anatolian side of Istanbul and the Eastern Marmara Provinces (Kocaeli, Sakarya, Yalova, Düzce, and Bolu). In 2015, he established the MILTECH (Millimeter Wave, Electromagnetic and Security Technologies) Laboratory. MILTECH's research areas include microwave and millimeter-wave antenna design, electromagnetic characterization of radar absorbing materials (RAM), reflectivity and shielding efficiency measurements, RF and microwave radiation safety and ELF/RFR electromagnetic field measurements, passive and active millimeter-wave / microwave circuit design, passive millimeter-wave imaging, magnetic field probe design. Prof. Dr. A. Oral Salman was a guest lecturer in the field of electromagnetics and microwaves at the (National Defense University) Naval Academy, Gedik University, and Istanbul Şehir Universities in the Electrical and Electronics Engineering departments at graduate and undergraduate levels. He took part in 14 national and international projects so far, authoring 20 articles, 27 conference papers, 47 publications in total, 1 international book chapter author (Subsurface Sensing), 1 book translation editor (Advanced Engineering Electromagnetics), all from Wiley, and a chapter translator (Antenna Engineering) in 1 book. He worked as a referee, editor, and expert in some cases in many projects and publications. His research interests are electromagnetic and millimeter waves and microwave, antenna design, electromagnetic properties of radar absorbing materials, millimeter-wave passive sensing, subsurface sensing, optical photonics, wave propagation, electromagnetic wave-environment interaction, magnetic field probe design, optical and atomic properties of materials, quantum optics and photonics. He is currently working as a researcher for electromagnetic shielding measurements in Atatürk University and KOÜ joint project "GNP Coated Chain Structured MXene Ti3C2Tx Nanostructure and a Modified Original Sandwich Composite Armor Modified with NonNewtonian Fluid". Administratively, he served as Laboratory Supervisor at TÜBİTAK MAM, Department Deputy Head, Member of the Academic Board of the Department, and Responsible for MÜDEK Measurement and Evaluation at KOÜ. The awards he received, respectively, were the department second-best degree in 1993, the TÜBİTAK MAM Achievement Awards in 2000 and 2005, the Young Scientist Best Paper Award in 2001, the TÜBİTAK MAM BTE Certificate of Appreciation in 2009, and the TÜBİTAK MAM Incentive Award in 2009.
