Communications

We work on multidisciplinary approaches to problems in highly mobile communications, cognitive radio, RF, and millimetre-wave and terahertz technologies.

Achievements include radio interference management algorithms for future LTE networks, and the development of system-critical components for the Square Kilometre Array radio telescope.

Research focus

We are experts in this field and cover all aspects related to communications.

Some specific areas we focus on are:

  • Square Kilometre Array icon

    Square Kilometre Array (SKA)

    The SKA is the next generation of radio telescope and is already under construction. We have designed one of the candidate antenna designs that might be used. This antenna is easy to fabricate with low cost, low losses, and excellent detection capabilities for the array.

    5G mobile networks

    Research has already begun on the next generation of mobile network, the 5G. Although there is not yet any formal specification, it is anticipated that 5G will support an astounding 10 Gbps per terminal. We’re working to achieve this, looking at very wide bandwidth operation, novel techniques and new mobile architecture.

    Radar

    We are actively involved in radar research, looking at radio propagation and environmental aspects to solve problems across numerous sectors including aviation, navigation, and meteorology.
