The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), a part of The University of Alabama System, announced that deciBel Research has pledged $90,000 to name room ENG 264 in the Engineering Building. This space will be called the “deciBel Research Communications and Signal Processing Laboratory.”
The announcement was made in conjunction with a room-naming plaque presentation on the UAH campus.
“UAH’s College of Engineering is grateful to deciBel Research for its generous gift to our Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department,” says Dr. Shankar Mahalingam, Dean of the College of Engineering. “This gift will enable hundreds of electrical and computer engineering students to gain valuable hands-on experience in radar systems, antenna design, signal processing using ultra-wideband devices and control systems.”
“When we were provided the opportunity to contribute to the Communications and Signal Processing Laboratory, we felt this was a good fit for our company to give students an additional hands-on learning environment and enable them to apply radar systems design principles,” said Jeff Gronberg, deciBel Research, CEO and President. “deciBel Research has a rich history in radar signal processing and analysis, and we are honored to invest in this great engineering program.”
deciBel Research, an employee-owned company, is headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, and has offices and personnel supporting customers in Dayton, Ohio; Colorado Springs, Colorado; and Wallops Island, Virginia.
“By investing in the future of our outstanding engineering graduates, decibel Research’s legacy will be a huge boost to Huntsville, Madison, the north Alabama region, and the United States,” Dr. Mahalingam notes.
deciBel Research, an employee-owned company, was founded in 2002 to support radar system and sensor technologies research, development, integration and advancement with an emphasis on modeling and simulation analysis; sensor and system test and evaluation; algorithm development; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; and sensor and system engineering.
