Research: Anti-jam Spread Spectrum Satellite Communications, Advisor: Gordon Stuber

Lab details: Wireless Systems Laboratory

TIGs: Digital Signal Processing, Telecommunications
Seeking: MS students, 1 positions
Application Due December 15, 2023 to

Research keywords: anti-jam communications, adaptive antennas, error control coding, interference cancellation


An MS thesis position is available in the Wireless Systems Lab, focusing on anti-jam (A/J) communications for military satellite communication systems that use protected tactical waveform (PTW). One important category of A/J exploits the spatial characteristics of the radio environment by using an antenna array at the satellite. Another category of A/J relies on signal processing techniques such as error control coding and interleaving along with jammer state information, baseband interference filtering and interference cancellation. The project will involve mathematical modeling and analysis, and computer simulation, particularly using MATLAB and perhaps C. A half-time GRA is anticipated for the period Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2024, during which the student is expected to research the project and complete an MS thesis.
