The Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) program has announced its latest round of contract awards, and Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE/ISR) is associated with two of them.

He will continue his work with InTank, Inc., of Laurel, Md., on the MIPS project, "Ultrasonic Nondestructive Inspection of Tanks." This project is developing an effective and efficient ultrasonic testing system for use in robots that inspect commercial storage tanks such as gasoline, fuel oil, and chemicals.

Liu also is working with Maryland Semiconductor, Inc., Clarksburg, Md., on "Wireless USB Broadband Connectivity," a new project that will develop high-speed, wireless universal serial bus (USB) hardware and software to interconnect office devices at data rates of 55 to 480 megabits per second.
