Limitless Bounds: An Interview with Ding Nie, Marconi Society Young Scholar

November 3, 2018

NDEE alumni, Ding Nie was named a Marconi Society, Paul Baran Young Scholar. His radical theory work invites electrical engineers to move in an opposite direction of what has always been taught in terms of coupling. The result is limits that are literally boundless. In this personal interview, Ding shares more about the man behind the theory and his journey as an electrical engineer.

Ding Nie Honored with 2018 Marconi Society Young Scholar Award

RadioHound Project Announces First Partner Release

June 15, 2018

The RadioHound project is advancing and building the enabling technologies to create large-scale geographic maps of activity in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum. Combinations of these technologies will enable commercial and government entities to advance situational awareness, efficient spectrum utilization, and enforcement of regulations and spectrum sharing etiquettes to significantly advance numerous applications of the RF spectrum such as communications, sensing and radar, positioning, and electronic warfare.
