o        Software development: PC applications for Radio System design, analysis and simulation; propagation modeling; automated testing;


o        Consultancy services in the Radio Communications field: fixed and mobile digital radio systems, radio propagation, antenna design, training in the above fields. Main assignments:


o        Design and simulation of Signal Processing functions in GSM receiver (Viterbi equalizer on a mobile multipath channel, without and with diversity; patents Europe/USA on interference canceller and diversity combiner);  further analysis of simplified (reduced -state) Viterbi receivers.

o        Development and upgrades of the DMLE Sw package (digital radio link design) under GTE Telecom contract.

o        Algorithms for optimum frequency assignments in point-to-point digital radio networks.

o        Technical and cost analysis of a VSAT network for a large bank company.

o        Contributions to the RACE-CODIT European project (CDMA cellular radio systems).

o        Development of a data acquisition system for field measurements on radio receivers and propagation analysis .

o        Feasibility study of a radio network for environmental data collection.

o        Computer Based Training Course on Radio Propagation.

o        Study on Quality of Service in P-MP radio networks for Wireless Local Loop applications.

o        Development of the HERALD Sw package (Point-to-Point radio link design).

o        Support to editing and revising documents for ITU earth station notifications.
