ITTC Project

RFID Tag Analysis and Trade Studies

Project Award Date: 06-29-2005


This project will focus on the discovery and operational testing of small RFID tags to determine their availability and compare their operational capabilities. ITTC researchers will conduct market research to determine the availability of small passive and semi-active RFID tags and to evaluate their operational performance characteristics. A report shall be generated to describe the physical properties of the tags, where they may be purchased, how much they cost (in small quantities), identify the pros and cons of each tag type, and document the performance characteristics of tags/antennas when in free space or mounted on various materials.

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.
