Entrepreneurs looking to monetize 5G networks “and beyond” have a new tool thanks to a national effort spearheaded by a research team at North Carolina State University. AERPAW, a project designed to accelerate the integration of unmanned aerial systems – also known as drones – is now generally available, a development officials say could give Triangle companies the upper hand.
Dr. Ismail Guvenc (Fellow, IEEE) received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from University of South Florida in 2006. He was with Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs during 2005, with DOCOMO Innovations between 2006-2012, and with Florida International University between 2012-2016. Since 2016, he has been an Associate Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University. His recent research interests include 5G wireless systems, communications and networking with drones, and heterogeneous wireless networks. He has published more than 130 conference/journal papers and book chapters, and several standardization contributions. He co-authored/co-edited three books for Cambridge University Press, served as an editor for IEEE Communications Letters (2010-2015) and IEEE Wireless Communications Letters (2011-present), and as a guest editor for several other journals. Dr. Guvenc is an inventor/coinventor some 30 U.S. patents. He is a recipient of the FIU College of Engineering Faculty Research Award (2016), NSF CAREER Award (2015), Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award (2014), and USF Outstanding Dissertation Award (2006).
