The Wideband Tactical Networking Group develops concepts, technologies, and prototypes to provide on-the-move tactical military forces with wideband packet network access. The group's current focus is on the design and integration of increasingly more capable, inexpensive, modular, mobile network nodes that support satellite, airborne, and terrestrial links. The purpose of these nodes is to give mobile warfighters the network access they need to run critical command-and-control applications and situational awareness applications no matter where they are moving in a theater of operations.
The group is currently seeking a summer intern to support secure multimedia communications systems. The successful intern will be involved with the design and implementation of a novel video watermarking scheme. He/she will play a key role in the initial investigation of a compressed sensing based intra-frame watermark algorithm for tactical video applications. He/she will support the team in the algorithm design, network modeling and analysis, statistical data analysis, and/or network simulation tasks.
