Ed Komp joined ITTC in September 1998. He has more than 15 years experience in designing, implementing, and managing commercial software products. His primary interests include specialized computer language design for application specific domains, functional programming, software development environments, and networking. He received his B.A. in mathematics and his M.S. in computer science from KU in 1976 and 1979, respectively. He was the primary software architect for the Block Oriented System Simulator (BOSS) and helped found a local company to commercialize this tool. He also was the primary software architect and manager for the Block Oriented Network Simulator (BONeS), a second commercial product success. Cadence Design Systems eventually purchased the start-up company that Komp co-founded. He stayed with the company and continued to specialize in graphical simulation tools.

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.
