WiNetS Research

LDAR

One of the areas of research in WiNetS lab is Wireless Communication. The current GRAs are Tasmeer Alam, Neda Shourabi, Davi Oyediran, and Wondimu Zegeye. One of our current projects is Channel Dynamics in Link Dependent Adaptive Radio (CD-LDAR). This project started as a collaborative effort between WiNetS lab and Georgia Tech Research Institute. Current phase of the project is funded by the International Foundation for Telemetering (IFT).

In the current phase of the CD-LDAR project researchers are working to include aeronautical channel dynamics in the flight simulations of the Link Dependent Adaptive Radio (LDAR) for realistic measurement of the throughput gain with the adaption of the modulation and coding parameters for aeronautical telemetry. The impact of creating accurate simulation results with the dynamic channel simulator reaches beyond LDAR and will help the telemetry community to improve the accuracy of computer simulation in the design and pre-test stages.

SECURITY

Cyber security is an exciting part of the WiNetS lab. As cyber attacks continue to increase in number and complexity, there has to be greater effort from the cyber security industry to detect and prevent these attacks. The main goal of the cyber security team in the WiNetS lab is to contribute to stopping cyber attacks by researching and analyzing attacks and figuring how to prevent them.

The WiNetS lab is equipped with a cyber test bed populated with a host of hardware/software including laptops, switches, screens for visualization, and a selection of industry-standard software. These tools facilitate cyber security research at WiNetS. An example of an ongoing research project is the configuration of an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) to be able to detect and prevent client-side attacks. The cyber security team at WiNetS is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students at Morgan State and welcomes interested students with a passion for cyber security.
