ITTC Project

Adaptive Distributed Radio Open-source Intelligent Network (ADROIT)

Project Award Date: 10-01-2005


ITTC will work as a subcontractor for BBN Technologies. The Center will provide 10 Agile Radios, a software defined radio, for use in developing and demonstrating capabilities needed for the DARPA project. The subcontractor will design, prototype, and implement a radio frequency module for the Agile Radio to transmit and receive signals in the 2.4 GHz ISM band. Additional adjacent RF frequencies may be included. Researchers will define and quantify a set of war fighting, Mission-Oriented Communications Properties necessary to specify a radio communications system for military personnel. ITTC will (a) develop a language to describe software defined radios and (b) develop a library of Radio Components for the Agile Radio. This task will involve design, implementation, testing, and evaluation of software radio components.

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.
