ITTC Project

A Functional Programming Environment for Design and Implementation of High Performance Radio and Synthetic Aperture Radar Processing Functions

Project Award Date: 0000-00-00


This project has three research focus areas:

(1) The design and implementation of a Functional Programming Environment (FPE) to express signal and image processing algorithms, mapping (compiling) those algorithms to field programmable gate array (FPGA) architectures, and managing adaptive computing resources.

(2) The implementation and demonstration of radio communication functions with the FPE and mapping these functions onto field programmable gate arrays.

(3) The implementation and demonstration of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) processing algorithms with the FPE and mapping these algorithms onto FPGAs.

The first area creates an important technology for expression and manipulation of signal and image processing algorithms.

The second and third areas will be used to evaluate the FPE and implement important radio communications and SAR processing functions and modules.

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.
