Wireless Communication Systems

Introduction

Wireless Communications Research group at Department of Electrical Engineering, Military College of Signals, National University of Sciences and Technology focuses on research activities related to design, simulation, analysis and implementation of wireless communications systems. The areas of interest are, but not limited Multi-Input Multi-output (MIMO), Massive MIMO, Orthogonal Division Multiple Access (OFDM), Cognitive Spectrum Sensing, Cooperative Communications, Compressed Sensing, Green Communications, Long Term Evolution (LTE) Systems, Wireless Channel Modeling, Spread Spectrum System, and Satellite Communication Systems. Over the years, experience and expertise in these areas have been developed through teaching relevant courses, conducting undergraduate projects and post graduate research theses.

Research Areas

  • Research, Performance Analysis, Simulations and Development of Physical Layer techniques to improve the performance of Advanced Wireless Systems such as LTE, WiMAX, etc. These techniques include:-
    • Multi-Input Multi-output (MIMO), Massive MIMO
    • Adaptive Antenna Grouping MIMO Channels
    • Application of HARQ and Network Coding for Overloaded MIMO Systems
