AFRL Awards Jayaweera $600K to Explore mmWave Spectrum

ECE Professor Sudharman K. Jayaweera was recently awarded a five-year, $636,199 grant from the Air Force Research Laboratory for a cutting-edge project entitled "Communications-theoretic Foundations for Advanced EHF Satellite Systems."

Jayaweera will use this money to investigate, explore and develop foundational methods that will expand emerging and future RF communications systems to a new spectrum, called the "mmWave spectrum," that ranges from 30GHz to 300 GHz.

Jayaweera plans to investigate communication-theoretic foundations that will enable the use of this spectrum for satellite and other communications.
