Startup looks to Capitol Tech for research and development partnership

Students at Capitol Technology University don’t just learn how to use existing technology – they help invent the technologies of the future. Case in point: pioneering new antennas being developed by a DC-area startup in collaboration with Capitol Tech.

Students at Capitol Technology University don’t just learn how to use existing technology – they help invent the technologies of the future. Case in point: pioneering new antennas being developed by a DC-area startup in collaboration with Capitol Tech.

GloMo, a research and development group specializing in wireless communications, has teamed up with the engineering program at Capitol Tech to experiment with new, digitally enhanced antennas that can pinpoint distant objects with unsurpassed precision.

Students selected for the project are working under the mentorship of Dr. Armen Gulian, a leading research scientist who has collaborated with Nobel laureates, supervised the world’s first observation of phase-slip centers in high-temperature superconductors, and assisted the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in the development of quantum detectors. Dr. Gulian is the founder of Chapman University’s Advanced Physics Laboratory, and is also a member of the adjunct engineering faculty at Capitol.

Dr. Nayef Abu-Ageel, chair of the engineering program at Capitol Tech, says the opportunity for students is “huge.”

“This project allows them to work on cutting edge technology – innovations that are happening around them, at a rapid pace. Moreover, they are gaining valuable practice in communicating with a customer, as well as in writing proposals and applying for funding. They receive feedback from the customer regarding their work. They also receive a stipend for their efforts,” he said.
