MIPS contracts for Liu, GuptaISR faculty are associated with two new Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) contract awards. The MIPS program provides matching funding for university-based research projects that help companies develop new products. MIPS projects must deal with innovative technological or scientific concepts and have direct commercial applications.
Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE/ISR) is working with Mobitrum Corp., of Silver Spring, Md., on high-speed, ultra-wideband wireless communications system for smart devices to transmit data to and from consumer electronics, PC peripherals, and other devices, with speeds of 55 to 480 MB per second.
Associate Professor S.K. Gupta (ME/ISR) is continuing his work with Automated Precision, Inc., of Rockville, Md., developing mathematical models, algorithms, and prototype software to facilitate the inspection of automobile and aerospace parts. The new system could enable 100 percent inspection, as well as reducing both its time and cost.
