Groundbreaking specialist skills
RADIO FREQUENCY AND MICROWAVE ENGINEERING
Investigations into new designs for cellular radio systems, advanced electromagnetic simulations, and the use of terahertz frequency radiation for physical, medical and biological sciences, are just a few examples of the multitude of uses for this branch of technology.
PERVASIVE COMPUTING AND SECURITY
At the Wireless CIC, we are committed to pushing the frontiers of ubiquitous computing, using our wide-ranging experience of telecommunications knowledge to create additional levels of device integration and security.
COMMUNICATIONS AND SIGNAL PROCESSING
An important dimension of Wireless CIC is the Communications and Signal Processing Group, a globally renowned team that brings together a wealth of expertise and covers most areas of communications and signal processing.
SATELLITE COMMUNICATION AND NAVIGATION
Our contacts within the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) Institute of Satellite Navigation and our own unbeatable skill sets mean that Wireless CIC can put you in touch with top rate specialists in the research of satellite communications and navigation and positioning systems.
MULTIMEDIA AND APPLICATIONS
Researchers in both Institutes are addressing the challenges from the massive growth of multimedia. Accommodating the increase of traffic from the rich diversity of information managing internet delivery, quality of service and creating appropriate content are all areas of active interest.
Wireless Sensors and Ad Hoc Networks Sensor technology is a vital part of our everyday lives. With industrial collaboration, Wireless CIC is able to exploit new developments to form exciting new products such as Wireless Process Tomography; Wireless Electromagnetic Field Detector; and Location and Positioning Systems and Multi-Dimensional Sensing.
There is a chance to take advantage of some of the best brains in Britain and make the most of excellent training. Wireless CIC runs training packages across a wide range of skills. Our courses include the three-day Radio Transmission and Reception programme, available as a residential module or distance-learning option; Wireless Embedded Sensors Networks and applications, provided as a five-day residential course; and Mobile and Wireless Communications Networks, offered as a five-day residential programme or online distance support. We can also create unique courses that are tailor-made for your requirements and give you face-to-face contact and invaluable interaction with experts who have up-to-the-minute knowledge.
Wireless CIC research utilises state-of-the-art laboratories. We are especially proud of our anechoic chamber. The chamber plays a vital role in research activities within mobile, wireless and satellite communications. Researchers can test sensors, antennas and other transmission devices in a completely controlled environment.
The Centre is also being used to investigate how different sorts of antennae can reduce the amount of radiation passing into the hand when holding a mobile phone. For more information on the extensive facilities at the two Institutes, please visit www.mscrc.net
