ECE faculty get large DARPA grant

Prof. Arye Nehorai and Prof. Danilo Ericolo from the ECE department have just learnt unofficially from DARPA that they have secured a very large grant from DARPA. The award has been approved and public announcement will be made shortly. This is the second large grant that these two faculty have received recently (their earlier one was the MURI grant).

The project title is “Adaptive Waveform Design for Detecting Low-Grazing-Angle and Small-RCS Targets in Complex Maritime Environments.”

Arye is the PI. The co-PI’s are from: UIC (Danilo), ASU, Princeton, Purdue, Raytheon, and U of Melbourne (in collaboration with DSTO of Australia). Phase I will be 15 months, and the optional Phase II for another 21 months.
