Leadership in Information Technology

In the year 2000, CSL emerged at the forefront of a major information technology initiative by the National Science Foundation. Of the $90 million in research awards, CSL received $7.8 million - more than any other laboratory in the country.

With these and other grants, CSL continues to explore reliability, survivability, and information protection in wireless communications. CSL is also laying the foundation for network-based control, in which objects, such as an automated highway system or surgical robots, can be controlled through a wireless network or the Internet.
