The ITC Mission

“Capabilities enable applications;
applications demand improved capabilities.”
Dr. Donald L. Boyd, Executive Director,
IT Collaboratory

The mission of the IT Collaboratory is to create key technologies, knowledge, and capabilities to design and integrate next generation information technology systems. Our collaborative research is concentrated on technologies and applications in two key interacting focusses: a) photonics, microsystems and nanomaterial sciences; and b) remote sensing systems.

This reflects our conviction that technologies and capabilities enable applications; conversely applications demand improved capabilities and technologies. Such interdependence between developed technologies and applications, when combined with the expertise and experience of the collaborating universities, industries, and government agencies, along with the IT Collaboratory STAR Center research efforts and results is individually and collectively generating economic benefits and impacts to New York State and the Nation.

NYSTAR’s objective is to support research and technology development that will ultimately result in commercializing new technologies, creating new business, stimulating new products and requirements, and generating new, while retaining existing, jobs. Coupled with NYSTAR’s objective, the IT Collaboratory STAR Center is providing a source for ideas, relevant technologies, talented experts, and a skilled, educated workforce to play a major role in the economic future of New York State.
