EPSRC Funded Project Kicks off

A 2-year newly funded EPSRC project kicks off today. The project EP/V002635/1 ‘Boosting power efficiency of physical-layer secured MIMO communications’ will be the first systematic study of the physical-layer wireless security under the energy awareness context. We propose to recover the energy penalty of the physical-layer security solutions without compromising security performance. This ambitious vision […]
