AUSTIN, TX, October 28, 2010
Kuma Signals, LLC has been awarded a contract with the Department of Defense to study and develop low-complexity blind MIMO receivers. The project is being funded by the National Security Agency’s Laboratory for Telecommunications Sciences (LTS).
“Kuma will bring the state-of-the-art closer to reality with this research,” said Kuma Signals CEO Steven Peters. “In a typical structured network, the receivers know how and when the transmitters are sending data. In a blind system, such as a cognitive radio capable of adapting to its environment, that information has to be learned from scratch. This research will really push cognitive radio to its limits.”
