Welcome to the Radio Science Lab

As wireless networks become more complex, move to higher (or lower) frequencies, and/or are deployed in more challenging situations, propagation and channel models that accurately describe the new environments must be developed. By translating our knowledge and understanding of the wireless environment into propagation and channel models useful in system analysis, design, and deployment, the UBC Radio Science Lab helps designers gain useful insights, make better decisions and thereby achieve their system coverage, reliability and performance goals.

The UBC Radio Science Lab conducts a variety of wireless propagation measurement and modeling projects with support from industry sponsors, standards groups and government funding agencies. Our current projects include:

* Fixed wireless propagation in suburban macrocell environments for intelligent power grid applications

* Wireless propagation for intelligent transportation systems

* Wireless propagation over short-range links in industrial and transportation environments

* Wireless propagation over body area sensor networks

* Electromagnetic shielding properties of nanomaterials

* Wireless propagation on Ka-band links to satellites in low Earth orbit

For recent results, please see our Recent Publications page or contact Prof. Dave Michelson.
