Advanced SATCOM Systems and Operations
Our group develops innovative architectures for next-generation satellite communications (SATCOM) systems. We perform systems engineering on test beds and operational prototypes to enhance capabilities of communications satellites, line-of-sight radio communications systems, and free-space optical communications systems. Researchers in this group design waveforms that more efficiently use the frequency spectrum, which can prove crucial in military satellite communication. We also develop adaptive antenna beamforming and signal processing techniques to improve system performance.
