Profile – Experience
University of Belgrade, School of Electrical Engineering, is a prominent scientific and educational institution, specialized in electrical engineering and computer science. It employs about 160 professors and assistants. Offering all the levels of academic studies (Bachelor, Master and Ph.D.), it enrols the total of about 1100 students per school year. The Group for Electromagnetics, Antennas and Microwaves conducts its research through the Laboratory for Microwave Technique and Laboratory for Antennas and Propagation and it is internationally well known for its scientific contributions. The expertise of the Group is in the field of simulation and design of RF and microwave components, antennas and systems, and methods, algorithms and software for their design. Methods and algorithms, developed by the members of the Group, are implemented in the original software. WIPL-D Microwave is the worldwide adopted software for professional 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulations and it is one of the five leading software tools of this kind. LINPAR is the reference software for simulation of multiconductor transmission lines and it is incorporated into Microwave Office – one of the leading software for analysis of RF and microwave circuits. AWAS is an exceptionally fast and accurate software for analysis of wire antennas and scatterers. All these tools, together with the expertise of the Group can be efficiently applied in this project.
Main Role in the SALUS Project
University of Belgrade, School of Electrical Engineering, via the Group for electromagnetics, antennas and microwaves, will deal with EM modelling of wireless sensors and propagation of their EM waves in complex environments, including human body (e.g., on-body WBAN sensors in rescuers’ suits) and various other natural and artificial obstacles. In this way data about properties of the corresponding wireless communication channels will be obtained, that will serve as an input for activities in the physical layer security and privacy. New, more suitable WBAN antennas will also be designed. This role will be performed by the use of the expert knowledge and large professional experience of the Group members in the areas of electromagnetics, antennas and propagation of EM waves, as well as by the use of advanced software for simulation of EM fields and antennas, designed by the members of the group.
