Assistant Professor FOONG Shaohui, May 2016, 4 years

Monocopters are a class of rotorcrafts known as free rotors where the entire airframe is continuously rotated to provide lift during flight. This mode of flight, which is employed in nature by the samara of maple trees to cover extended distances through unpowered stable autorotation, can be adapted for controlled powered flight with the same […]

Cross-functional Information System for Decision Making (CISDeM)

Professor David YAU, Dec 2014, 3 Years

This is a synergistic research program – spanning areas including natural language processing, machine learning, networking, and signal processing – to achieve holistic decision support for agile and proactive network security informed by multi-modal and multi-layer empirical data.

CISDeM is a cyber-information research program for decision making against network security threats. It adopts an inter-disciplinary research […]

Network Engineering Techniques for Wireless Secrecy (NETS)

Dr Jemin LEE, Feb 2014, 3 years

Wireless security is a critical issue in many applications when people rely on wireless networks for transmitting important and private information. Although wireless communications offer reliable and efficient communication, the vulnerabilities that inherently reside in wireless medium can result in security risks. This motivates the team’s principal research on wireless security for the design of […]

Cooperative Intelligent Network with DYnamic topology (CINDY)

Assistant Professor Yuen Chau, Nov 2011, 3 years

The objective is to develop new and practical network coding and interference alignment mechanisms to enable an energy-efficient cooperative wireless network that is equipped with the ability to intelligently self-reconfigure and scale in accordance to size, topology and dynamic environment change, to smartly allocate and manage available resource, and to ensure low-overhead, high-rate, reliable […]

Thunderflux – Heterogeneous Mobile As-Hoc Network – Connectivity, Robustness and Self-Organisation

Assistant Professor Tony Quek, Mar 2014, 3 years

The project aims to design an adaptive, high data-rate, robust, and energy efficient mobile tactical network with heterogeneous nodes. The project will develop a novel integrated and adaptive system that takes into account the heterogeneity of different wireless networks (different frequency bands and time-varying channels), resource constrained environment (limited power and frequency spectrum), and unpredictable […]

Kyanite – Improved Cognition by Design

Assistant Professor Suranga NANAYAKKARA, 2015, 3.5 years

The increasing complexity of military technology, especially operating multiple robots, is further adding to the cognitive load, thus calling for devices designed for better human performance under critical situations. This project directly aims to help compensate the inherent stress in multiple robot operations by device design, specifically human-robot interface design rather than just training people. […]

Telamon – Indoor Relative Positioning System (IRPS)

Assistant Professor YUEN Chau, Mar 2014, 3 years

The objective of the project is to design and develop a smart device based system to accurately determine the relative peer positioning system for indoor environment by fusing data from the various sensors found on the smart device (Wifi, Acoustic, magnetic and IMU), and through binary area cut methods. As individual positioning mechanisms suffer […]

Telamon – Urban-Area Scene-Based Localization (USBL)

Assistant Professor Ngai-Man (MAN) CHEUNG, Mar 2014, 3 years

Navigation based on GPS alone is not reliable for military operation. GPS jamming devices can be assembled easily with rudimentary engineering components and skills.  Also GPS localization error is inevitable in urban canyons with dense collection of high buildings. The project aims to determine the location of the camera when the query image […]

Telamon – Soldier Body Area Network (SBAN)

Assistant Professor Tony QUEK, Mar 2014, 3 years

Project TELAMON aims to address the positioning of soldier in urban/indoor environment under GPS denial situation as well as the communications protocol of the soldier body sensors. The project will develop algorithms/modules for three independent areas, i.e. Urban Area Scene-Based Localisation (USBL), Indoor Relative Positioning System (IRPS) and a Soldier Body Area Network (SBAN). The […]

Wearable Sensors

Assistant Professor Dawn TAN, Mar 2014, 4 years

The detection of chemicals is an extremely useful capability to have. In urban environments, this detection capability could serve as an indicator of pollution levels, presence of gas leaks and other hydrocarbons to name a few. In hostile environments, chemical detection is useful to increase the  awareness of soldiers to their locale, and provide […]

Systems Technology for Autonomous Reconnaissance & Surveillance (STARS)

Professor Kristin L WOOD, Oct 2013, 4 years

A strategic opportunity exists to develop Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) platforms for urban settings at greatly reduced scales and with unique mission capabilities. The team aims to develop autonomous bio-inspired miniature systems that mimic individual and collective insect or small animal behaviour for surveillance tasks in urban environments, commencing with terrestrial vehicles for […]
