ITTC Project

KU Antenna Range Improvements (cont)

Project Award Date: 05-23-2003


This project will focus on the addition of capabilities to the University of Kansas Outdoor Antenna Range. The University of Kansas (KU) will perform the primary work activities with technical and project over-sight provided by Honeywell FM&T. The Antenna Range activities will include improved data collection software, hardware enhancements, and antenna gain measurements.

The following is a partial list of antenna range measurement capability improvement requirements and tests to be performed by KU:

Evaluate methods to store data in text files rather than Excel to potentially speed up data collection and make the data files storage process more manageable. Develop easy methods to view or graph data, possibly using Excel.

Evaluate and implement improved RF Switch box to make it easier to bring inside for safe storage, and for ease of reconnections.

Measure gain patterns for a given set of antennas on the antenna range and do an evaluation of how well the range performs. Evaluate measurement methods.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
