Ultra Wideband (UWB) Microwave Tomography
Microwave tomography is noninvasive imaging method to obtain characterization of objects. Our focus is on both hardware design including UWB antenna design, and software development for inverse imaging.
Wideband communication is desired for Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA). Antenna design is a crucial step towards this goal. Our focus is on designing low power high gain antennas and adaptive arrays.
Wireless Channel Characterization
The demand for anytime, anywhere connectivity is increasing. Design of reliable and efficient wireless networks requires better knowledge of wireless channels. We focus on characterization of wireless channel and design of adaptive arrays for different environments.
We are designing a microwave wireless power space-to-space demonstration using small satellites through the University NanoSat program specifications. We are collaborating internally with the Mechanical Engineering, Space Studies, and Technology Departments.
