(listed by the project award date)

Radar Networking(Status: Completed -- Project Award Date: 09-30-2013)
ITTC researchers will explore how multiple radars can participate cooperatively with one another and other spectrum users, such as communication and navigation devices, within the same and/or nearby frequency bands.
Miniaturized, Power Efficient C-Band Telemetry(Status: Completed -- Project Award Date: 03-15-2013)
The overall objective is to successfully develop the concept and design of a miniaturized, power efficient C-Band telemetry transmitter.
Preamble Assisted Equalization for Aeronautical Telemetry (PAQ)(Status: Completed -- Project Award Date: 03-06-2013)
This research is to identify equalization algorithms suitable for use with SOQPSK-TG that are capable of exploiting the presence of a periodically inserted pilot block.
BRIGE: Heterogeneous Traffic over Heterogeneous Relay Networks(Status: Active -- Project Award Date: 09-01-2012)
This research will increase the understanding of providing reliable service for heterogeneous traffic over heterogeneous relay networks. The objective of the proposed research is to develop a unified fundamental framework for the analysis and design of heterogenous relay networks that can efficiently deliver heterogeneous traffic with statistical delay constraints.
NeTS: Small: Exploiting Adaptive Protocols in Packet-Based Broadband Wireless Networks(Status: Completed -- Project Award Date: 08-01-2012)
The proposed networking technology and systems research addresses how to hide the transmission of information within the RF environment created by packet-based broadband wireless (infrastructure) networks, like LTE and WiMAX.
Multidimensional Signal Processing for Sensing & Communications(Status: Completed -- Project Award Date: 06-01-2012)
The primary objective of this effort is to enhance sensitivity for radar and multi-mode communication systems in the presence of strong interference, especially clutter which is non-homogeneous, spread in Doppler, coherent with signals of interest, relatively high power, and can be coupled across the dimensions of space, slow-time, and fast-time according to the operating mode.
Burst-Mode Synchronization for SOQPSK (SYNC)(Status: Completed -- Project Award Date: 09-09-2011)
ITTC researchers will design practical synchronization algorithms that approach the theoretical performance limits and implement these algorithms into a hardware prototype. These efforts support the ongoing migration to iNET.
Lunar and Martian Surface Communication Systems with Efficient Miniature Antennas(Status: Completed -- Project Award Date: 07-03-2008)
Researchers will develop communication systems able to operate under severe size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints. Additionally, these systems will be required to transmit large amounts of data wirelessly and efficiently during future space missions.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
