ITTC Project

Planetary Advanced Radio Sounder

Project Award Date: 12-01-2004


A graduate student will develop models in collaboration with NASA to simulate radar sounder performance. He or she will collect wideband radar data over the Greenland ice part of NASA's Program for Arctic Regional Climate Assessment. During his or her second year on the project, the student, under the guidance of Prasad Gogineni, will create and test clutter reduction algorithms using data collected with the wideband radar. He or she will also develop model-based signal processing algorithms for the wideband radar for interpreting radar data from Europa. In the third year, Goginenis student will continue to analyze wideband radar data for reducing range sidelobes and clutter and synthesize results for publication in refereed journals

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.
