...manufactures wideband software defined radios consistent with the following statement of Darpa:
William Chappell, director of DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office, states
“The current practice of assigning fixed frequencies for various uses irrespective of actual, moment-to-moment demand is simply too inefficient to keep up with actual demand and threatens to undermine wireless reliability,”

Illinois Commerce Commission allowing for the creation of traditional telecom infrastructure for a fraction of the "Traditional Cost"
What is a Software (Defined) Radio?
***A software radio is a wireless communications device that performs all of its signal processing in portable, application level software. By simply running a different program, a software radio can become a cell phone,
wireless LAN, cordless phones, garage door opener or walkie-talkie. The flexibility enabled by software radio also enables faster technology tracking, since standards upgrade are simply software downloads.
Software radio is a multi-disciplinary systems effort, bringing together research in digital signal processing, communications, operating systems, software engineering and algorithms.

Illinois Institute of Technology's Real Time Communications Lab
Announces TADHack Chicago Satellite The IIT (Illinois Institute of Technology) Real-Time Communications Lab in the School of Applied Technology is excited to be hosting a Satellite event for the Telecom Application Developers Hackathon (TADHack ) from 9:00 AM Friday, June 6 to 11:30 AM Saturday, June 7 in the Idea Shop on IIT’s Main Campus.
I know of several people/entities who shall be participating in this upcoming event
so why not you show up too :-)
University of Chicago's Research Computation Center
@ Regenstein Library
I've been accepted into the above as it, in my opinion, highly relates to:
Radio Waves = Lots of BandwidthRadio Waveforms = Requires HIGH Computation (depending on Waveform such as CDMA)
The University of Chicago Research Computing Center, in partnership with Northwestern University, is one of 20 sites across the US that will host the Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering Data Intensive Summer School.

Cost: $68,479 for the original Stingray; $134,952 for Stingray II.Agencies: Federal authorities have spent more than $30 million on Stingrays and related equipment and training since 2004, according to procurement records. Purchasing agencies include the FBI, DEA, Secret Service, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Internal Revenue Service, the Army, and the Navy. Cops in Arizona, Maryland, Florida, North Carolina, Texas, and California have also either purchased or considered purchasing the devices, according to public records. In one case, procurement records (PDF) show cops in Miami obtained a Stingray to monitor phones at a free trade conference held in Miami in 2003.
