UCLA ECE Professors Suhas Diggavi, Mani Srivastava, and Paulo Tabuada are part of a four-institution consortium that has been awarded the Collaborative Research Alliance (CRA) on Internet of Battlefield Things (IoBT) by the Army Research Laboratory. The CRA is being funded for $25M for an initial 5-year period (with UCLA’s share being approximately $4M), and will have a potential extension for another 5-years for a total of $67.6M. The CRA will develop the scientific foundations of a next-generation Internet of Battlefield Things (IoBT) that is intended to enable new, predictive battlefield analytics and services. UCLA will lead the research area on autonomic IoBTs to enable intelligent services, and also engage in research on cyber-physical security, distributed analytics, and mathematical foundations of composable and adaptable IoBTs. Besides UCLA the consortium includes the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, as the lead institution, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the University of Southern California. The alliance also includes Carnegie Mellon University, SRI International and the University of California, Berkeley as subawardees.
