Statistics Seminar with Keith Gremban

Keith Gremban, Director, Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS), National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NITA)

Introduction to the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS)

The Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) is the research and engineering laboratory for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).  The NTIA serves as the primary telecommunications and information policy advisor to the President, as well as managing all Federal spectrum.  ITS informs policy through research, experimentation, and analysis, solves telecommunication problems for other Federal, state, and local agencies, and does cooperative research with academia and industry.

Nearly every aspect of modern life relies in some way on telecommunications and information technology.  Consequently, ITS has a broad research portfolio.  In this talk, Dr. Keith Gremban, the Director of ITS, will present an overview of some of the most impactful research at ITS, including:

  • Radio frequency (RF) measurement, modeling, and analysis;
  • Electromagnetic compatibility analysis;
  • Spectrum sharing;
  • Audio and video quality of experience evaluation;
  • Internet of Things (IoT) modeling and simulation;
  • Spectrum monitoring and the Boulder Wireless Testbed (in collaboration with CU Boulder).


BIO: Keith Gremban is the Director of the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS), which is the research and engineering laboratory for the National Telecommunications and Information Adminstration (NTIA).  Keith has been involved in systems engineering and advanced technology development for over thirty years.  Prior to arriving at ITS, Keith was a Program Manager at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) where he managed a portfolio of programs in the areas of wireless communications and electronic warfare.  While at DARPA, Keith created and managed the Content-Based Mobile Edge Networking (CBMEN) program, which developed a secure, cloud storage capability for mobile ad hoc wireless networks.  Prior to DARPA, Keith worked at a variety of companies and research institutes, managing and leading research and systems engineering projects, including a diverse collection of unmanned systems such as: a robot snake, multiple ground robots, and several unmanned aerial systems.  Keith received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, and his M.S. in Applied Mathematics and B.S. in Mathematics from Michigan State University.
