A unique facility for testing new mobile computing and communications technologies, known as the ORBIT Open Access Radio Grid Testbed, has scooped the Alexander Schwarzkopf Prize for Technological Innovation, recognizing a research team at the Rutgers University Wireless Information Networking Laboratory (WINLAB).

The winning facility features a 400-node programmable radio transceiver emulation laboratory and an outdoor field trial system of short- and long-range radios on the university’s New Brunswick Campus.

The ORBIT facility is the world’s largest open, programmable wireless network facility for use by academic and industry researchers worldwide.

Approximately 200 research teams have conducted more than 5000 experiments since the lab became widely available to researchers in October of 2005.

Studies have included computer networks that can be automatically reconfigured on-demand, networking for security and environmental sensors, vehicular data communications and wireless networking security.

The Alexander Schwarzkopf Prize for Technological Innovation is awarded by the I/UCRC Association, a voluntary, independent organization of past and present members of the National Science Foundation’s Industry/University Cooperative Research Center program.

Orbit is seeded by a $5.45 million four-year grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation.
