The National Science Foundation has awarded a $1.5 million contract to a firm that’s developing a new way to connect people to their favorite radio programs.
The program, called Radio Communications, will connect people directly to programs and shows on radio, TV and internet via a new technology called “networked radios,” which have a variety of radios that can be used in conjunction with one another.
The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, the U:S.
Federal Communications Commission, and the National Science and Technology Council.
The National Science Board’s Science and Engineering Policy Council and the Office of Science and Humanities will jointly develop the program.
The award follows a recent announcement by the National Academy of Sciences that the National Communications System (NCS) would be shut down by 2023.
The NSF is a U.N. agency responsible for funding research into new technologies and technologies for the civilian use.
