Liu, Milner, Baras participating in MIPS awards

The Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) program has announced its latest round of contract awards, and ISR-related faculty are associated with three of them

Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE/ISR) will be working with InTank, Inc., of Laurel, Md., on the new MIPS project, "Ultrasonic Nondestructive Inspection of Tanks." This project will develop an effective and efficient ultrasonic testing system for use in robots that inspect commercial storage tanks such as gasoline, fuel oil, and chemicals.

ISR Senior Research Scientist Stuart Milner will be working on a MIPS communications project with LumenLink, Inc., of Rockville, Md. The project will develop actively tracked optical wireless links for "bursty," high-data-rate communications between moving platforms.

Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR) will be working on a Phase II MIPS project with Hughes Network Systems on "Broadband Internet Applications over Satellite," which will develop new and innovative Internet applications exploiting the increased bandwidth of forthcoming high-data-rate satellite constellations for HNS's DIRECWAY product.
