ITTC Project

Aspects of Adaptive Pulse Compression

Project Award Date: 08-01-2007


The underlying Reiterative Minimum Mean-Square Error (RMMSE) approach, previously developed by Blunt and Gerlach at the Naval Research Laboratory, has demonstrated evidence of remarkable flexibility. RMMSE is expected to yield significant performance benefit for numerous applications, including multi-user communications in the presence of significant multipath' effects and advances in the extraction of simultaneously received multistatic radar signals. Furthermore, in conjunction with RMMSE estimation, other aspects of pulse compression enabled by adaptive processing will be addressed. In particular, the estimation and subsequent compensation for waveform phase and amplitude jitter will be addressed in order to mitigate errors that are introduced by high-power components in the radar transmitter.

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.
