The NYU WIRELESS research center announced it will build an advanced programmable platform to rapidly design, prototype, and validate technologies vital for the millimeter wave (mmWave) radio spectrum, which is potentially key to launching the next ultra-high-data-rate generation of wireless communication, or 5G.
Harris Corp. has received a three-year, $54 million ceiling, single-award IDIQ contract from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory to provide electronic warfare (EW) technology and engineering services for the Advanced Decoy Architecture Project (ADAP). The contract was awarded during the first quarter of Harris' fiscal 2016.
Rice University researchers have won $2.4 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to conduct the most extensive experimental research yet of wireless technology that uses 100 or more antennas per base station to send tightly focused beams of data to each user, even as they move.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced that Fraunhofer Research Institution for Microsystems and Solid State Technologies EMFT (Fraunhofer EMFT) is the first low-frequency noise measurements reference center able to demonstrate the Keysight EEsof EDAs E4727A Advanced Low-Frequency Noise Analyzer in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India (EMEAI).
Two wireless charging standards are competing for market share as the next generation of resonant wireless technologies is nearing readiness. ABI Research forecasts that through 2020, 713 million Qi and 213 million Powermat/Rezence chargers will ship, along with a small number of proprietary technologies.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a four-year, $750,000 grant to NYU WIRELESS and the NYU Stern School of Business to evaluate the engineering and economic aspects of millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum and resource management. The mmWave bands are a promising new set of frequencies for next-generation cellular networks that offer orders of magnitude increased data rates relative to current 4G systems. The goal of the grant is to develop new technologies, economic models, and spectrum policy to realize the full potential of these bands.
