Abstract : The primary purpose of this initiative is to forge a strong link between private sector R&D and University applied research, to speed the development of new knowledge and the transfer of technology to the public and private sectors. To this end, communications infrastructure and R&D facilities have been developed. Relationships with private companies engaged in R&D have been advanced. Important research has been carried out in areas of interest to the DOD and national security. These areas include nanotechnology, haptics, image analysis, materials, energy efficiency, communications, network technologies, remote sensing, malaria, biofouling and corrosion, and underwater optical sensing.
