Davis, Makowski, Milner receive optical wireless networks contracts

Professor Christopher Davis (ECE/ISR), Professor Armand Makowski (ECE/ISR) and ISR Senior Research Scientist Dr. Stuart Milner have been awarded a contract for Omni-Directional Optical Wireless Networks by the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command.

They will design, prototype, and field test a unique prototype optical 3-dimensional communication node and demonstrate its utility as part of a diverse wireless network, which can provide assured and robust communications between sensors over short ranges by diffuse reflection - (e.g., in areas of dense vegetation.) In addition, a specification of a network service model and protocols for control of topology, link management, service discovery, transport and interoperability with other communication protocols will be provided.

In addition, Davis and Milner have been awarded a contract for Three Dimensional Optical Wireless Networks by the Army Research Laboratory. They will design, develop and prototype a unique three-dimensional optical communication node and demonstrate its utility as part of a diverse, reconfigurable wireless network.
