Information & Telecommunication Technology Center

 

Radar & Remote Sensing Lab

The Bioinformatics and Computational Life-Sciences Laboratory (BCLSL) advances methods and tools geared to biological, biochemical, and medical applications. BCLSL investigators work with collaborators in the life sciences to identify research, develop, and apply key computational approaches. These efforts directly involve the biological and medical domains in areas of modeling, analysis, and data management. In addition, concomitant research in traditional computational methods such as algorithm optimization, data- and compute-intensive methodologies, and statistical methods are pursued to meet the specialized needs of these problem domains. This interdisciplinary work in applied and basic research involves investigators from computer science, electrical engineering, mathematics, and life-science and medical disciplines. 

Information Assurance Lab

The Information Assurance Laboratory (IAL) focuses on developing, verifying and fielding high-assurance information systems. Its purpose is to provide a University-wide focal point for those involved in information assurance research, education and implementation. IAL faculty and students perform research including theoretical modeling, high-assurance system synthesis and verification, security modeling and analysis, network security, and database security. IAL faculty manage and implement the MSIT program in information security as well as teach information assurance principles throughout the University. Finally, IAL staff affiliates are responsible for developing and implementing information security across the University.
 

Communication & Signal Processing Lab

The Communications & Signal Processing Laboratory investigates the transmission of information-bearing signals through physical channels and the processing of signals from physical sources. Research encompasses the disciplines of communication theory, signal processing, information theory, and estimation and detection. Faculty and students are engaged in projects in a wide range of applications, including energy-efficient wireless communication, error correction coding, optical communications, waveform diverse radar, receiver synchronization, and audio signal processing.

Computer Systems Design Lab

The Computer Systems Design Laboratory (CSDL) focuses on the design, implementation and verification of systems whose primary components include computers. CSDL research addresses the design of computing systems ranging from small embedded elements to large distributed computing environments covering all aspects of the system lifecycle from requirements analysis through testing and validation. 

Networking Systems Lab

The Networking Systems Laboratory investigates all aspects of information processing and transport. Faculty and graduate students in NSL work on high-capacity networks, optical systems, agile and software defined radios, innovative transmitter and receiver design, and reliable and robust mobile networks. The laboratory integrates leading edge research with practical implementation and applications. The focus of NSL is to efficiently deliver reliable communications services across a wide range of challenging mediums to user applications. Recent projects involve radio design, Bluetooth and RFID evaluation, optical sensors for biology, and radio spectrum measurement and management.
