Howard University Awarded $90 Million Contract by Air Force, DOD to Establish First-Ever University Affiliated Research Center Led by an HBCU

Published

on

Washington, D.C., Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WASHINGTON – Howard University President Wayne A. I. Frederick, M.D., MBA, hosted U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin III, and U.S. Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall to announce that Howard will serve as the 15th University Affiliated Research Center (UARC). With this announcement, Howard makes history as the first HBCU to lead a UARC and the first center to be funded by the Air Force. 

“Being awarded this contract is a historic and tremendous accomplishment for Howard University. No other UARCs are providing this type of research to the Department of Defense at present, and Howard researchers are uniquely positioned to serve as a leader in the nation’s innovation and application of automated systems,” said Frederick. “This center puts Howard University at the forefront of progressive science and technology efforts. While the primary goal of the center is conducting valuable research for the Air Force and Department of Defense, this center is also meant to help Howard and the consortium schools increase their research capacity. I have no doubt that this work will move us one step closer to our goal of reaching an R1 classification.” 

The center at Howard University will focus its research on tactical autonomy. The UARC will be established through a five-year, $90 million contract agreement with the Department of Defense. Through the center, Howard University will be awarded $18 million annually to conduct research that will contribute to the development of efficient, affordable, trustworthy human-machine teaming and systems-of-systems with autonomy and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities that fall within the U.S. Air Force, Space Force, and DOD’s modernization priorities. 

“Today as we work to build enduring advantages for our brave men and women in uniform, we must seek the latest innovations in science and in engineering. That means building more bridges to America’s outstanding STEM community,” said Austin. “Only a tiny fraction of our department’s research funding goes to HBCUs. As Secretary of Defense, I am determined to change that. To sharpen America’s technological edge and to strengthen America’s outstanding military, the department is committed to investing in even more HBCUs and minority-serving institutions. Today, we are taking that commitment to a new level.” 

This prestigious contract marks the University’s first foray into government contracting. The contract is foundational to Howard’s strategic plan moving forward. The tasks and investment associated with a UARC typically grow over time and will provide the school with financial stability not possible through grants or donations. The programmatic foundation for the UARC, however, has been in development at Howard for years. Currently, there are 15 doctoral students and two master’s level students researching autonomous systems and machine learning. With this contract, Howard becomes the national expert on tactical autonomy technology. 

“This is the one of the most prestigious research contracts that can be received by a research-focused institution of higher education.. The success we have had thus far was made possible by the relentless efforts of the team at Howard’s Office of Research. Success in the next five years of our work with the Department of Defense can lead to this UARC remaining at Howard in perpetuity and cementing the university’s status as one of the country’s premier research institutions,” said Bruce Jones, PhD, vice president for research at Howard University. 

Danda Rawat, PhD, professor of computer science and director of Howard’s Data Science and Cybersecurity Center will serve as the executive director of the UARC and principal investigator on the contract. Along with the essential research being completed, the Howard University UARC will implement programming intended to spark curiosity in STEM education amongst K-12 students through in-school demonstrations and ease their path to a career in the fields of artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, tactical autonomy, and machine learning. Undergraduate and graduate students will be encouraged to participate in UARC research. 

“This UARC will be critical in our efforts to continue to recruit, mentor and graduate students who are prepared for high-paying jobs in the future. For decades Howard has produced highly skilled, highly credentialed STEM professionals and the support of the Department of Defense and the Air Force will allow us to do at a higher level than ever before,” said Rawat. 

The establishment of the Howard UARC enables the university to create a pipeline for students from elementary to post-graduate education. A consortium of HBCUs, which Howard will lead, will be established as part of the UARC’s infrastructure. Students participating in UARC research will have the opportunity to have their education fully funded up to the PhD level at any one of the consortium schools. 

Howard University UARC Consortium Schools include: 

  • Jackson State University; 
  • Hampton University; 
  • Tuskegee University; 
  • Bowie State University; 
  • Delaware State University; 
  • Florida Memorial University; 
  • Norfolk State University; and 
  • Tougaloo College.

free-your-hands,-qidi-vida-smart-ar-glasses-lead-the-way-in-new-sports-experience.

NEW YORK, April 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Outdoor smart AR glasses, QIDI Vida, will officially launch on 23rd April on the Kickstarter platform.  QIDI Vida integrates the many functions of smart watches, sports headphones, cycling computers, heart rate monitors, and walkie-talkies using AR+AI technology, allowing users to bid farewell to cumbersome device management and enjoy outdoor sports anytime, anywhere with just one pair of glasses.

 
Function:
QIDI Vida uses high-tech HUD (Head-Up Display) which is similar to the technology used for aircrafts and premium cars and introduces it to the sports industry. Users can activate the HUD function at any time using voice control, enabling them to focus on the route ahead whilst simultaneously having access to information such as navigation, speed, heart rate, power and cadence, among other metrics. Another great function of the QIDI Vida is that users can also enjoy audiovisual entertainment through the optically perceived 100-inch AR  HUD screen, when having some down time. 
As cyclists and hikers often travel in groups, QIDI Vida supports eSIM and team functionality, allowing real-time voice communication without releasing handlebars, and users can monitor their groups’ real-time locations. The glasses also have comprehensive sensing and monitoring capabilities including temperature, humidity, UV, air pressure, geomagnetism and acceleration. In addition to obtaining environmental and health information, it also features health warnings such as altitude sickness symptoms and high heart rate, as well as fall and collision detection functions. And, in the event of danger, it can send distress signals to teammates.
Perks:
QIDI Vida has a global voice recognition and interaction feature that allows you to control all functions within the device by voice. To better provide users with an immersive sports experience, QIDI Vida’s intelligent system will have the capability to instantly gather personalised sports data, enabling it to deliver timely voice alerts and broadcasts, including the duration of exercise, distance, the environment and the weather – all tailored to the user’s preferences.
QIDI Vida enables voice-controlled photos and video recordings, allowing users to capture moments whilst cycling or hiking without the need to stop. QIDI Vida supports connections with common cycling smart hardware such as Garmin, Wahoo, Apple, and Samsung, supports GPX route files, and is compatible with professional sports apps such as Strava, Keep, Zwift, Apple Health, and All Trails.
QIDI Vida stands out for its lightweight and comfortable design with a dual lens for a full-colour data display, unlike competing AR glasses that typically have a single lens and limited colour. This innovation significantly enhances and augments the user’s sports and reality experience.
QIDI Vida will launch on the Kickstarter platform: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/109560964/qidi-vida-smart-ar-glasses-for-sports
