Ephremides, Ulukus, Tassiulas Part of New MURI Grant

Professor Anthony Ephremides, Assistant Professor Sennur Ulukus, and Research Professor Leandros Tassiulas are part of a recently announced Department of Defense Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) grant under Army Research Office topic "Cross Disciplinary Approach to the Modeling, Analysis and Control." The lead institution is the University of California, Santa Cruz, where J.J. Garcia-Luna-Aceves is the principal investigator. The grant provides for up to five years and $5 million in funding, and the Maryland team's portion represents about 20 percent of the total.

The project will address energy efficiency, cross-layer optimization, interaction between physical layer, MAC, routing, compression, and scalability of protocols. In addition, special attention will be given to sensor networks where there is a need to map mission-specific performance measures to classical networking performance metrics.

Dr. Ephremides is the principal investigator for the Maryland portion of the MURI. Besides UCSC and Maryland, other participating institutions include the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Stanford University; the University of Illinois Urbana-Chamgaign; the University of California, Berkeley; and the University of California, Los Angeles.

The MURI is one of 26 Department of Defense awards announced at the end of February.
