Virginia Tech and UT-Battelle signed a five-year memorandum of understanding to collaborate on wireless communications and cognitive radio research at Virginia Tech. UT-Battelle, which manages and operates Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), will work with Wireless@Virginia, one of the largest U.S. university wireless research groups.

Wireless@Virginia Tech, formed in 2006, includes several notable laboratories of wireless technologies. The aim of the collaboration is to pursue and execute joint programs in wireless communications and to create joint intellectual property in the form of software, algorithms and research papers. Special emphasis will be on developing cognitive radio systems, radios that incorporate artificial intelligence into their operation.

Both groups have a strong research program in this area, yet have pursued different applications for the technology.

"UT-Battelle will be able to provide Wireless@Virginia Tech with third-party resources, such as waveform-specific wireless testbeds and hardware development," said Mark Buckner, director of the ORNL cognitive radio program.
