Terabit mm-Wave Backbones for Integrated Space and Terrestrial Networks
Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)
Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)
Start year: 2020
Summary: This project aims to develop the theory and enabling techniques to achieve high-speed millimeter wave (mm-wave) backbones for integrated space and terrestrial networks. New scientific breakthroughs will be in fundamental transmission theory, efficient self-interference cancellation and spatial multiplexing techniques using hybrid antenna arrays. These will enable Terabits per second wireless transmission that is 10 times faster than current technologies. A proof-of-concept prototype will be developed to demonstrate the feasibility and performance of the new system architecture and algorithms, thus paving the way for commercialisation. The developed technology will enhance Australia’s information infrastructure as well as defence capacity.
