NYU Tandon Wins Spot in DARPA Consortium to Jumpstart Wireless Innovation

While fifth-generation (5G) wireless  technologies and protocols are still in development, researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering are reaching even further into the future as partners in ComSenTer, a newly formed hub for advanced wireless and sensing research founded by a consortium of industrial participants and the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

In a highly competitive selection process, NYU Tandon was chosen to join the lead institution — University of California, Santa Barbara — in this effort. Other researchers are from University of California, Berkeley; University of California, San Diego; Cornell University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  ComSenTer is the latest initiative in the Joint University Microelectronics Program (JUMP), a sweeping, five-year, $200 million industry/academia partnership to accelerate innovation in microelectronics-based technologies, including wireless communications.
