Sanjeev Baskiyar, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, has received a Defense Advanced Research Projects Award (DARPA) for more than $160,000. According to his proposal, "Enhanced Micro-Architectures for Real-time Systems," Baskiyar will use the funding to conduct research related to innovative micro-architectures for high speed and low power computing.

"I am honored to receive this award and excited to conduct this research," said Baskiyar. "This work could provide innovations that would allow for more predictive processing times in the presence of high external data traffic."

DARPA is the central research and development organization for the U.S. Department of Defense. DARPA's mission is to maintain technological superiority of the U.S. military and prevent technological surprise from harming national security. The agency funds researchers in industry, academia and government to conduct high-risk, high-reward research and development projects that will benefit U.S. national security. Projects include biology, medicine, computer science, chemistry, physics, engineering, mathematics, material sciences, social sciences, neuroscience and more.
