Perrins Named Area Editor


From KU News
By Michelle Ward

Erik Perrins, an associate professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, has accepted an invitation to serve as an area editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications. His duties include assigning papers to the 13 editors within the modulation and signal design area, monitoring their performance and assisting the editor-in-chief.

"Erik is an internationally renowned researcher in the field of modulation and signal design for telecommunication systems. He has served as an editor for several years and has done an excellent job in this capacity," said Robert Schober, a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia, who nominated Perrins for the position. "This made him a natural choice when the position of area editor became vacant."

Perrins' research expertise is in wireless communications. He recently received a Department of Defense research grant to help develop new communications architectures for flight test telemetry --measuring at a distance. By simultaneously allowing multiple tests to take place over hundreds of square miles, the integrated Network Enhanced Telemetry program is a significant upgrade in aircraft testing. He conducts research at KU's Information and Telecommunication Technology Center.

He also helped build a communication system able to transmit large amounts of scientific and operational data while adhering to severe size, weight and power constraints needed for future space missions. Perrins' team developed miniaturized hardware for the NASA project.

Prior to area editor, Perrins served for four years as an editor for the journal.

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.
