The A&MSP Department focuses on Spatial Interference Management in Licensed Shared Access (LSA): Short Range Communications and Satellite communications. LSA is considered to be a key enabler for an efficient use of the available spectrum in 5G and beyond networks, which will become absolutely compulsory in order to cope with the unprecedented wireless traffic growth that has been predicted for the 2014-2020 period. The field of application includes space communications, future cellular networks, and wireless sensor/actuators networks.
Activities are centered in four main research lines:
- New paradigms for hybrid satellite-terrestrial communications.
- Advanced multi-antenna processing techniques and optimization strategies for interference limited networks: PHY-MAC Cross-layer design for Resource Management.
- New waveform generation for terrestrial-satellite: multi-carrier filterbank and development of a Software platform.
- Cross-design of antennas and signal processing techniques for emerging multi-antenna technologies such as spatial-modulation (SM) or large-scale multiple antenna systems (LSMAs or Massive MIMO). Distributed MIMO systems.
