NSF seeks proposals on secure analog-RF electronics and electromagnetics

February 7, 2020

While the tremendous growth of interconnected devices has resulted in significant benefits to society, security of these devices has emerged as a major concern. Current security approaches based solely on digital techniques have limitations when applied to electronic devices with RF and analog functions. To enhance and ensure security of these electronic devices, new approaches are needed.

The NSF Directorates for Engineering and for Mathematical and Physical Sciences announce their interest in receiving EArly-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) proposals to support research in fundamental theory, design, algorithm, and experimental verification of RF, analog, and mixed-signal techniques that will significantly enhance and ensure the security of electronic devices.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2020, its budget is $8.3 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
