Baras wins MIPS award to develop satellite communication algorithms

Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR) and Frederick-based Cerona Networks Corporation have received $161,500 in funding from the Maryland Industrial Partnerships Program (MIPS). The project will develop algorithms for Internet via satellite communications to improve upload speeds from users to the Internet, support more subscribers per satellite and enable communications on the move.

The funding is part of Round 46 of MIPS awards, which total $3.3 million to 16 teams of Maryland companies and faculty developing commercially promising technology products. The projects combine $1.9 million from participating companies and $1.4 million from MIPS. Funding supports research in the laboratories of participating university faculty, who work closely with partner companies to advance their products.

MIPS is an initiative of the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech) at the University of Maryland.

"Programs such as MIPS are critical to our 21st-century technology economy in Maryland," says Governor Martin O'Malley. "Blockbuster companies in Maryland like MedImmune, Martek, and Hughes Network Systems have leveraged MIPS to create thousands of jobs in the region, generate $19.5 billion in revenue and develop products that enhance, protect and save lives."
