ISR News Story

Baras, Liu, Davis receive MIPS grants

ISR faculty are associated with three 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 deal with innovative technological or scientific concepts and have direct commercial applications.

Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR) is developing software that will enable first responders and emergency management organizations to seamlessly use wireless phones and devices during a catastrophic network outage, regardless of the phone services they are using. He is partnering with CI Technologies, LLC, Frederick, Md.

Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE/ISR) is partnering with Mobitrum Corp., Silver Spring, Md., to develop a software library for manufacturers of 802.11n wireless Internet equipment to use in easily programming wireless routers, switches and PC cards.

ISR-affiliated Professor Christopher Davis (ECE/ISR) is working with MFX Technologies, Inc., College Park, Md., to develop algorithms and a searchable database of signatures for explosive and non-explosive liquids and solid chemicals. These will be coupled with MXF’s advanced X-ray technology to detect and identify explosives at checkpoints in bottles, containers and luggage.
