UCLA Public Safety Network Systems Laboratory
Raytheon Company has given seed funding of $1 million for three years to UCLA for its partnership to create a new Public Safety Network Systems Laboratory. The mission of this Laboratory is to bring together academia, industry, and public safety agencies to provide technical leadership to perform collaborative research and to establish standards for public safety networks based on the 4G LTE standards. Other public and private organizations that meet the membership requirements of UCLA will also be invited to join the Laboratory. The co-directors of the Laboratory are Distinguished Professor Kung Yao and Distinguished Professor Izhak Rubin of the Electrical Engineering Department in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science (HSSEAS). This Laboratory is affiliated with the Institute for Technology Advancement (ITA) in the HSSEAS of UCLA.
