The Elisha Yegal Bar-Ness Center for Wireless Communications and Signal Processing Research (CWCSPR) at the New Jersey Institute of Technology was established in 1985. Since its inception, it has contributed to technological advances in communications with research in many areas of communication theory. Research activity in the Center has grown over the years and diversified into new research fields.
There are six faculty members associated with the Center, 1 post-doc and over 20 graduate students, most of them pursuing their Doctor of Philosophy degree. The Center’s main areas of research are wireless networking, information theory, cloud radio access networks, radar, and sensor networks.
The Center routinely hosts visiting researchers, post-docs, and students from overseas. Several students pursue double PhD programs according to agreements between NJIT and other universities.
The Center also establishes contacts with technical personnel in the electronics industry to learn their needs and designs and delivers short courses for them as part of the university's continuing education program. Also offered are seminars of interest to Center members, the department and local industry.
