Glenn Prescott, professor of electrical engineering and computer science, was awarded the NASA Special Service Award for his involvement in establishing the NASA Earth Science Enterprise Advanced Information System Technology program.

The program annually awards up to $15 million to researchers whose work helps NASAs Earth Science Enterprise to better understand changes to global environment from natural and human activities. Prescott worked for the enterprise from May 1999 to mid-August 2000.

Prasad Gogineni, distinguished professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences, said his colleague was a worthy recipient of the NASA honor.

It has been a pleasure working with him; hes an excellent researcher as well as teacher and Im glad to call him a colleague, he said. Hes always done more than what is expected of him. He did that at NASA and too, and thats what got him the award.

Prescott also received the Terra Award, which is one of the highest honors given by NASA.

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.
