Purdue Air Force Lab to Partner on Technology Commercialization

first_imgThe Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and the Purdue Research Foundation last week signed an agreement to boost technology commercialization.The Purdue Office of Technology Commercialization signed a similar agreement with Naval Surface Warfare Center-Crane Division, Ind., in 2014 that showcases both organizations’ intellectual property with the goal of promoting the transfer of innovations to the public.“We already have a robust research and development program, but the agreement with Purdue will enable us to capitalize on the successful proven approaches used by Purdue to efficiently and effectively commercialize advanced technology products at an even faster rate,” Bill Harrison, director of the AFRL Small Business office, said in a news release.“In addition, we will be able to tap into Purdue’s established entrepreneurial activities including educational and mentoring opportunities and its entrepreneurs-in-residence program,” Harrison saidThe agreement calls for AFRL and Purdue to retain independent ownership of their relative intellectual property, but Air Force intellectual property will be marketed alongside Purdue’s innovations through the Purdue Office of Technology Commercialization, which is managed by the Purdue Research Foundation.“The goals of this agreement include implementing our established technology translation processes and to expand the commercialization channels for Purdue and the Air Force Research Laboratory,” said Chad Pittman, vice president of the Purdue Office of Technology Commercialization.“Because we share so many similar disciplines and industries, the successful marketing and commercialization methods we utilize will fit well with the innovations and technologies that the Air Force Research Laboratory has developed and patented,” Pittman said.

FCC raises 2 billion in second 5G spectrum auction

first_img Sarah Tew/CNET Angela Lang/CNET $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express 5G AT&T FCC Verizon,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Other Labor Day sales you should check out Best Buy: In addition to some pretty solid MacBook deals that have been running for about a week already, Best Buy is offering up to 40% off major appliances like washers, dryers and stoves. There are also gift cards available with the purchase of select appliances. See it at Best BuyDell: Through Aug. 28, Dell is offering an extra 12% off various laptops, desktops and electronics.

Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters.

Jessica Dolcourt/CNET The Federal Communications Commission’s second 5G spectrum auction has ended, raising $2 billion in gross bids.5G, already launched in the US by Verizon and AT&T, is the next-generation network being used by smartphones to provide faster speeds and more capacity.Through its second auction, the FCC sold off a batch of millimeter-wave (mmWave) high-bandwidth spectrum in the 24GHz band, with 2,904 of the 2,909 licenses offered being awarded on Tuesday. The licenses mean carriers can launch mobile services across multiple frequencies, improving latency, speeds and capacity.”American leadership in 5G means deploying more airwaves for the next generation of wireless connectivity,” FCC Chair Ajit Pai said in a statement. “By making more spectrum available, we’ll ensure that American consumers reap the substantial benefits that 5G innovation will bring and we’ll extend US leadership in 5G.”In total, the second auction raised $2,024,268,941. The FCC has yet to reveal who won what.The first 5G spectrum auction ending in Jan. saw the FCC raise $702,572,410 in gross bids, awarding 2,965 of the 3,072 licenses offered in the 28GHz mmWave band after opening up bidding in November.The third 5G spectrum auction will kick off on Dec. 10, with licenses in the 37GHz, 39GHz and 47GHz bands up for sale. I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor.

Google takes a step beyond passwords with Android authentication

first_img Review • Our Google Pixel review: Pure Android at its absolute best Tags See it 2:46 Preview • Pixel and Pixel XL unveiled: Google’s post-Nexus phones come out swinging (hands-on) 17 Photos But it’s only a small step for now. Google offers it only in “step-up” situations where you’re confirming your authentication rather than first-time logins. So this demotes passwords without actually getting rid of them. Microsoft is a notch more aggressive in moving its online services like Outlook.com, Skype, OneDrive and Xbox Live to a post-password design.Both the moves are made possible with an open authentication standard called FIDO2 that Google helped to develop through a consortium called the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance.For higher-security situations, like logging onto a new device for the first time, Google offers support for hardware security keys, including its own Titan models and third-party models from companies like Yubico. That, too, is enabled by FIDO2.

Google Pixel Comments 12 Who needs a password when you’ve always got this at your disposal? James Martin/CNET Google has taken an important step into a future that doesn’t require passwords, letting phone users log on to some websites using just their Android phones. That means you’ll be able to sign into a site using a passcode or fingerprint, starting with Google’s Pixel phones Monday and spreading to other relatively recent Android phones in coming days, Google said.”This new capability marks another step on our journey to making authentication safer and easier for everyone to use,” said two Google team members, Dongjing He and Christiaan Brand, in a blog post Monday. For now, the service works on Google’s passwords.google.com website, but the company plans to expand it to other Google services.In case you hadn’t got the memo, passwords are awful — the ones that are most secure happen to be the ones that are hardest to type and remember. That’s even leaving aside the issue of the many breaches that have splattered passwords and other personal data all over the internet. Google’s use of Android as an authentication device is an important step beyond password problems. Inside a password-free future CNET may get a commission from retail offers.last_img read more

Further, Luminous designer fans come with a LED light diffuser and a fully functional intuitive RF Remote.In an industry worth Rs 15,000 crore currently, Luminous has a market share of around 39 percent in UPS and 27 percent in inverter batteries. The company’s power storage products contribute about 90 percent of the sales and rest 10 percent comes from home electricals, which includes segments as fan, switches and electric cables. “We would soon enter a new category which is LED lights in the next quarter,” Sabharwal said, adding that the company is scouting for new markets and looking at greater penetration in the existing markets.
